MUST LOVE Vintage: Retro Furniture We Can't Get Enough Of

Our Must Love series is dedicated to sharing, well, things we love! We're by no means a home, fashion, or even lifestyle blog but that doesn't mean we don't want to talk about those things on occasion. Here we'll curate a selection of items, sometimes vintage, sometimes modern, but always awesome. Buy it, pin it, tell us you love (or hate) it! This week we're bringing you a selection of incredible vintage furniture that we've found while scoping out Etsy. Mid-century modern lovers - prepare to fall in love!

We can't help but imagine our turntable sitting atop this vintage credenza with all of our favorite records tucked away beneath. Not a record collector? Think Mad Men... a few bottles of liquor, silver rimmed tumblers, an ice bucket, and you'll have a pretty nice bar set up.

We never thought we would catch ourselves thinking "What a beautiful magazine rack!" but here we are. This piece would be beautiful in any home and it serves a very practical function - finally somewhere to store all those Food Network magazines that are taking over the coffee table! Additionally, it folds up for easy storage, not that you'd want to hide it away.

Mid-century modern furniture is so sleek! The simple clean lines always stand out and this chair is no exception. The neutral upholstery makes it a nice compliment to more colorful pieces, or if you prefer it to be the focal point of your room, just toss a bright decorative pillow in the seat.

We adore this bright shade of blue that crops up often in vintage pieces! Ottomans are great accents to sitting rooms and offices, and we especially love those tapered legs.


While the bright cream drawer panels are courtesy of a recent up-cycle, we can't help but think this piece would still have a perfect place in Don and Megan Draper's NYC apartment, maybe in Sally's room?

A little more bold blue for your viewing pleasure! The chair backing caught our eye first, but we're loving the clean lines! That blue upholstery is original and in excellent condition, not something you typically see with vintage pieces. Oh, and before we forget to mention it, this is actually a set of two.

If you're in the market for any vintage pieces we highly recommend scoping out Etsy. You can adjust the search settings to local parameters if you like, and only shop for pieces in your area to avoid high shipping costs + you can usually make arrangements to see the piece before purchasing if you contact the seller. We've scoped out some steals in the past, maybe you'll find one of your own! In the mean time, we'll sit over here intensely jealous that none of these pieces belong to us...
