Get the Look: Andy & Andrew's Vintage Modern Living Room

I've been transfixed by the living room in Andy & Andrew's Vintage Modern house tour all week. I'm completely in love with the look of this home! And while the couple have decorated their home with thrift store and flea market finds, presumably over a stretch of time and with a great deal of patience, I've rounded up a list of brand new products for achieving a similar look in a fraction of the time.

You have two options if you want to achieve the casual look of Andy & Andrew's Vintage Modern home. You can spend some time perusing Craigslist, ebay and flea markets to gradually pick up vintage pieces similar to ones seen in the couple's living room. Or you can cut to the chase, whip out the credit card, and buy new.

1. The Crate & Barrel Petrie sofa is a dead ringer for the one seen in Andy and Andrew's apartment. With its boxy shape and tufted back, the Petrie sofa will remain a design classic, making it a little easier to swallow the $1700 price tag. If that's out of your price range and you still want to buy new, similarly shaped sofas can be found — such as the Karlstad from IKEA and the Night and Day at Urban Outfitters, both of which are around $600.

2. Framed maps are a classic decorating touch. While the map above Andy and Andrew's sofa is undoubtedly vintage, this map from etsy seller VassiSlavova is vintage styled — plus, you can have it personalized.

3. Yes, I know, the chances that you are going to buy a toboggan sled merely to display in your home are pretty slim. Still, I love the casual look of the sled leaning against the wall in this home. New sleds from Mountain Boy Sledworks range in price from $24.99 to $99.99 and can actually be used for more than display. Pull it outside on a snowy day and use it for its intended purpose and you'll instantly feel like a kid again!

4. The Kennedy Chair from Thrive Home Furnishings is a perfect example of a new take on the vintage chairs seen in Andy and Andrew's home. Again, if the $899 price tag for the Kennedy Chair is out of reach, check out IKEA or similar discount retailers for a similarly shaped chair.

5. Andy and Andrew's vintage coffee table is similar to this Nelson Style Black Wooden Bench, available from Amazon for $230. One great thing about using a bench as a coffee table is that it can double as extra seating in a pinch. You can also check ebay and Craigslist for surfboard shaped coffee tables, which would also work well in this space and layout.
