Thrifting isn’t just for college students filling their closet with vintage finds on a budget. Even luxury shoppers are turning to secondhand goods to fill their closets and homes.

The trick is being able to shop fun and funky pieces and create a cohesive look and stay on-trend.

So, what’s making a comeback in 2020?

Read on to find out 5 of the latest vintage interior decor trends that you can use in your own home!

1. Geometric Accent Pieces

Bold patterns and geometric furniture first hit the scene in the mid-twentieth century. When we say “geometric,” imagine points, angles, curves–patterns that put shape at the forefront.

The fabulous thing about a good geometric pattern is that it can be loud and minimalistic at the same time. If you’re looking for a way to incorporate color and visual texture without over-cluttering your space, consider hanging geometric prints and switching out your traditional vases for something funkier!

2. Mixed Fabrics

Crushed velvet, suede, leather, and faux fur will all the rage in the 50s and 60s. While we went through a wave of uniformity in the 2000s, it’s time to bring back the mix-and-match style of the past!

If you’re worried about creating an overly chaotic look, find different fabrics in the same color. Alternatively, stick to neutral tones like black, white, and grey.

3. Wallpaper

Remember all that vintage wallpaper you tore down in the 90s? It’s time to put it back up! Well, maybe not the exact same wallpaper.

We may not be bringing back the bodacious orange and yellow flowers or the Victorian prints, and we’re definitely not putting wallpaper on every wall! Instead, use a beautifully printed wallpaper that matches your existing decor to create an accent wall that transforms the entire room.

4. Pendant Lighting

Once again, we’re bringing midcentury modern decor into the present with pendant lighting. Think magical orbs hanging at different levels from your ceiling, replacing your chandelier or recessed lighting.

Pendant lighting often creates a soft light that mirrors natural light. The spherical glass and bronze fixture becomes a focal point, turning something practical like lighting into a work of art.

5. Potted Plants

Even the New York Times has picked up on the return of the houseplant! The last time we saw this many houseplants in every home and apartment across the nation, it was the groovy 1970s and most of them were hanging from macrame plant holders!

Potted plants add a natural element to your home that is both refreshing and calming. They’re the one accessory you can go overboard with without making a room feel too stuffed!
