Don’t be Afraid to Pair Family Heirlooms with Fresh Furniture 

When decorating a home, most people don’t truly start from  scratch. There’s probably a family piece here and there that will be  passed down to help complete your look. It can be a challenge to  pair family heirlooms with new furniture pieces, but with a little  ingenuity, older pieces will help complete your décor.  An eclectic dining room with mismatched chairs may not be the  dining set you’ve always dreamed of, but it can become the star of  your home. Pair your hand-me-down with a vintage style 


farmhouse table for a unique look! You can even paint the chairs in various colors for a truly stunning dining experience.  Lucky enough to land a chaise lounge? Then you will be the envy of  the neighborhood! Whether it’s a stand-alone chaise lounge or one  that’s part of a sectional sofa, these beauties pair function, and  fashion. They are also timeless, versatile, and can easily go into a  living room, office, or bedroom. Sometimes the fabric may need to  be updated, but the style of the Chaise lasts forever. It can even be a  winner in the bedroom. Place it in a corner, add a floor lamp and  side table and it will make a perfect reading nook. 


The impetus for the development of ​Ashley Furniture North Carolina​ was the investment in 1970 in a small company in  Arcadia (Wisconsin)​.  What to do with that old bar? Adding a bar or wine fridge to the  kitchen is all the rage right now. But back in the 50’s and 60’s, you  were likely to find a small, mobile bar in the corner or a long  Credenza bar up against a wall. Even if you have a new modern bar  in your kitchen, don’t put your vintage bar by the curb! If you love  entertaining and celebrating with cocktails then the credenza is for  you even more so in a modern home. Make it the highlight of your  living or dining room.  Make that vintage coffee table stand out! Even if your new furniture  is a traditional or farmhouse style, you can always do a  mid-century coffee table. So, don’t put your great-uncle’s retro  table to the roadside just yet. Contemporary tables are typically  low-profile and relatively simple, and they complement almost any  design scheme. 


Focus on how your family pieces feel together. Don’t worry so much about design rules, but rather how you want your space to look and  feel.
