Vintage 2.0: A Modern Eclectic Home Office

Vintage 2.0: A Modern Eclectic Home Office

No ergnomic chairs. No fancy LED overhead lighting. Just pure vintage. This is actually quite hard to pull off if you've actually given it a try (we have), but if you're like Swedish interior designer Marie Olsson Nylander, you take any task given quite seriously. And if you asked for a vintage home office, well.. you'll get just that.

Like we said, no task is impossible if you put your mind to it. That and you also need to consider how to pull off modern amenities without making it seem like so.

For instance, how in the world would a wireless-N router fit into the decorous setting above? To be honest, we might even be tempted to stick it in a pot and run the wires along the underside of the furniture, just to keep it completely hidden. Like we always say, "When going big, you can't hold back."

As for the desk, a pair of simple all-in-one PCs is a reasonable choice since it cuts down on clutter and the built-in speakers eliminate the need for external speakers. We personally would have gone for a completely wireless system with the keyboard and mouse, but we understand there's really nowhere to tuck it away unless you grab one of those fancy vintage fold-out secretary desks, in which care wireless still wouldn't matter much.

All in all, it's hard to pull off such a look, but if you've already got the Unplggd mentality with carefully hiding away those wires and decluttering as a habit, you're well on your way there and you may not even know it!

What do you guys think? What's it take to pull off the ultimate vintage-eclectic home office?
