Have you noticed the renewed interest in antique + modern? I'm loving the crisp look of seasoned pieces against a fresh, clean palette. "Brown furniture" as it has come to be known, is sharing stage again, so get on the hunt for your one-of-a-kind pieces now while they are plentiful and at an all-time low. With a backdrop of whitewashed walls and crisp linen, these pieces are given instant new life. A few chic examples.
