Vintage outdoor furnishing is able to create delightful retro atmospheres. The right vintage style design feature adds a welcoming touch to an outdoor setting, far from the ascetic charm of cold and essential minimal or hi-tech styles.
Memories of yesteryear are impressed in the surfaces of sofas, chairs and tables. The colours are usually reminiscent of the plant world, matt shades of mud and clay, colour palettes that blend perfectly with garden plants and flowers.
However, to add a modern flourish to the past, we need to look to harmonious mixes: avoid mixing pieces from too different eras, as this risks creating an untidy, cacophonic image.
The best solution is to manage the available space by reserving a corner of the garden or a specific area to your vintage element.
This style allows us to play with innovative combinations. To create a romantic Provençal atmosphere, we can blend farmhouse furniture with antiques found at flea markets or in the cellar, which can easily be recycled and given new life by adapting their original function to a new context.
An old cupboard makes the ideal habitat for plants and flowers.
