I am currently in the process of moving house, and so naturally, I have found myself lost down a Pinterest hole. I am woman possessed; I start scrolling through pages and pages of interiors inspo, and next thing I know I've lost three hours of my life to table lamps. Pinterest FOMO is real—there's always the promise of a better pin one tantalising scroll away. The silver lining is that I am now a walking interiors encyclopedia, particularly for anything mid-century modern-related, aka my interiors aesthetic of choice.
As a vintage enthusiast, I suppose it was inevitable that I would fall for the throwback homeware vibe, and I'm attempting to source as much as I can second-hand. However, inevitably there will be a few bits that I buy new, but I think some of the most chic finishes I've seen have come from a mix of old and new, which also just happens to be my approach to fashion. Funny that.
There are so many fab sources of second-hand furniture these days, particularly if you're into the midcentury look: Etsy is up there, as is Facebook Marketplace and Discover Vintage Marketplace. There are also more and more high street brands, such as H&M and Zara, offering affordable interior pieces for those on a budget. As our homes become an increasingly important part of our working lives, there's never been a better time to invest in interiors.
With that in mind, I did a bit of scrolling on your behalf to create a definite edit of midcentury interior buys, covering both vintage and modern pieces. Scroll on down to see what I found.
