One vintage dresser, two different styles


My love of vintage furniture is no secret. Especially the Mid-Century Modern variety. All that warm teak goodness, the clean lines and the beautiful simplicity just makes my little heart flutter. I love a good estate sale, vintage/antique stores and of course thrifting for treasures in person but I had not done much online shopping for vintage, apart from Craigslist and Facebook. Until now. Enter Sotheby’s Home, which is an online consignment marketplace offering timeless pieces and the best selection of vintage and antique furniture, decorative objects, lighting, contemporary art, prints, accessories and more.

I had the chance to team up with them to style this amazing Nils Jonsson highboy dresser in two different ways. Let’s get into it!

Classic + Casual Style


I wanted this version to feel classic but also fresh and current so I paired the dresser with that amazing ornate vintage portrait and balanced that with clean and modern accessories like the ladder, books, vase and my mid-century inspired table lamp.

Minimal + Scandi Style


For the second look, I wanted to channel some Scandinavian vibes with lots of white accents and clean lines. The black and white print mixed with the simple round mirror and cascading greens are a nice contrast to the warm wood from the dresser.

I love how versatile the dresser is! I feel like I could style it in a million different ways and by the way – it’s also constructed beautifully and in impeccable shape! They don’t make them like they used to!

Consignment is a stylish way to recycle and consigning furniture lengthens its life and maintains its value over time beyond its first (or even second) owner. Sotheby’s Home believes mixing old with new and re-purposing beautifully crafted pieces gives character and depth to any space. I can totally get behind that movement!
