Juxtaposition of Old and Modern Interiors

Different eras across history have been marked with a certain kind of architecture, and hundreds of years later, some of these styles and design languages have stood the test of time and still look great.

Mixing old and new was interiors’ watchword of the last decade, and it is here to stay. Vintage Indian furniture made its way across the globe as soon as trade routes began to function, and people immediately fell in love with carved furniture.

Even the most aesthetic people agree that crowding a space with one design language can feel a bit dated, and this area is one of the few places where you can let your core style go wild and mix up some vintage art with modern designs.

If you’re in love with the modern designs and have a liking for vintage or upcycled furniture, wait till you walk into a room where both the designs are placed. You’ll be surprised to see how well vintage or upcycled furniture goes with different styling ideas.

As we buy into natural and sustainable materials, upcycled furniture, more greenery, and the rustic textures that come with this interiors movement, we’re going to need a pop of modern design to lift the whole look. Modern design blows in a fresh breath that allows all designs to feel more welcoming and attractive. Furniture from across the world has taken this new design cue of mixing up things and focusing more on sustainability.

The days of fast interiors are over, though, I think, and the 2020s will all be about knowing who you are, how you want to feel, and choosing a look that has soul and sustainability at its heart.

Rattanbrings a touch of modern design that is simple, elegant, and is durable enough to last a long time. These qualities make rattan an excellent sustainable choice that will add to any indoor or outdoor setting.

Carved furniture is loved across the globe, and while there are people who might be discarding their stuff for looking dated, there are a ton of things they can try to make things much more interesting and fun.

Vintage Indian furniture, paired with modern rattan designs, takes away the bulky and heavy look of the vintage furniture and adds in some much-needed simplicity. Carved furniture has a completer and more elegant look that will leave everyone in awe.

Ottomans, chairs, and sofas, everything looks much more trendy with carved antique designs and sustainable rattan styling. The combination of vintage Indian furniture and rattan is becoming hugely popular every passing day as people are becoming more aware of the rising replacement and maintenance cost of other furniture.


The juxtaposition of old and ultra-modern designs allows your indoor space to breathe in some fresher, trendier look that will definitely attract attention.

Apart from being aesthetically pleasing, a mix of old and modern carved furniture, a vintage Indian one, and rattan will make for a very pleasing setting that you will fall in love with.
