Vintage Furniture Inspiration

Best of 2011

Here at Re-Nest, we find ourselves constantly inspired by vintage furniture. Whether it's the smooth curves, tell-tale notches of lives past, a retro pattern, or clean lines begging to be refreshed, vintage pieces bring a lot to the table. Here are some of the most intriguing, eye-catching pieces from the last year on Re-Nest; some took a lot of elbow grease to turn into something beautiful, while others are lovely because of their age and condition. Enjoy!
