Winter is coming in hot, but I can’t help but kind of think ahead to next season! We lived in our backyard HARD this Summer; spending almost every free moment cozied up by the fire or lounging around catching some rays. We spent so much time outside that we really wore out my outdoor furniture, and I’m already thinking ahead to exactly what I want for next season. This time, I think a vintage furniture set is just what I need to upgrade my outdoor living space.
Vintage Furniture – Whimsical Wicker
Growing up, my grandma always had a set of wicker chairs with the softest cushions (that she handmade, of course!) on her patio. It was my favorite spot as a kid, and I love the idea of recreating her porch furniture in my backyard. Maybe I’ll even try to sew my own vintage furniture cushions..but if not, I’ll head to World Market!
Vintage Furniture – Inspiring Iron
There’s some kind of vintage furniture for everyone! If comfort isn’t important to you when choosing your vintage furniture, I highly recommend decorating with a set of classic iron outdoor furniture. Complete your vintage outdoor hideaway with a colorful centerpiece and a marble table top. Perfect for afternoon tea.
Vintage Furniture – Beautifully Bold
If the previous piece of iron furniture was too Victorian-era esque for you, try these funky ’70s themed wire chairs instead. You can add cushions if desired, but I think that would just hide the incredible iron detailing of the chairs. You can paint your outdoor table to match or you can leave it as a contrasting color as this homeowner did below!
Vintage Furniture – Breathtaking Benches
No outdoor living space is complete without an incredible bench to enjoy the sunset on! Scavenge your local thrift stores for any benches that may have made it to the store. Snag one and tuck it under a tree or in a shady spot, if you can, it will complete your garden!
Vintage Furniture – Cute Crosley
My other grandma (my Mom’s mom) believed in having an incredible outdoor living space, just as I do! As I grew up, she hosted several grand get-togethers in her backyard and these incredible Crosley Griffith chairs were ALWAYS scattered throughout her yard. When she passed, I inherited those incredible chairs and I think I’ll put them to use next summer! You can find a set of similar Crosley Griffith style lawn chairs here.
Vintage Furniture – Warmly Woven
With the right set of throw pillows, these woven chairs are the perfect amount of vintage for any homeowner. Besides being completely adorable, these woven chairs are also comfortable for any afternoon book-readers, sun-gazers, and even a napper or two. Purchase similar chairs on Amazon.
