I am currently in the process of moving house, and so naturally, I have found myself lost down a Pinterest hole. I am a woman obsessed: 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 midcentury 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 secondhand. However, inevitably there will be a few bits that I buy new, but I think some of the chicest 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 secondhand 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.
