Take a look at these other cabinet hardware pieces that are super modern.
These hairpin legs ($37 for 3) are like the little black dress of furniture components. Beneath almost any tabletop, they’re exactly the right thing. These highly rated beauties are handcrafted in downtown Los Angeles and are available in five different finishes. Here’s what your kitchen table says about you.
Modern farmhouse style is still popular and adding a reclaimed-wood sliding door ($650+) can really elevate that look in your home. This is a splurge that will add big impact, especially since these doors also incorporate windows for a little extra something-something. Once your door is installed, you can hang one of these easy DIY decorations on it!
Give your Ikea sofas and chairs new life—without ever visiting the store. This Etsy seller offers new slipcovers ($99) tailored to the Swedish furniture purveyor’s best-selling pieces. The covers come in a variety of colors and textures, from faux leather to velvet, and the usual neutrals to persimmon and plum.
Etsy can be a treasure trove of vintage fixtures and hardware—a great spot to look for replacement period pieces, from mid-century sinks to these white porcelain bath and shower knobs ($65). Of course, quality and price vary, so look for sellers with a good sales history and inspect all the photos closely before committing. Check out how one of our editors redecorated her bathroom for less than $100.
Set off a room or area with a decorative hanging screen ($77 for 12 pieces). Screens work well in mid-century homes, where geometric patterns work perfectly. Screens also enhance industrial, open-loft spaces where you may need a partition for privacy or to create some dimension. Done right, they’re equal parts form and function.
Floating shelves ($29+) are an easy add for a room that needs a little organization. Display your favorite vintage Jadeite or cookbooks in the kitchen, family photos in the living room or display perfumes and knickknacks in bedrooms. These shelves are offered in several different finishes to fit your room. Or, make your own floating shelves with our project plans.
The right light is essential for great aesthetics in your home. Upgrade your current dining room light with this stunning wood pendant ($139). It’s beautiful to look at, but the light (and shadows) it throws are also captivating. Check out these easy ways to brighten your home in winter.
If you’re lucky enough to have a vestibule, mudroom or spacious foyer, make that space even more useful with just one piece of furniture: a bench ($316). It’s a perfect place to drop bags and perch to put on shoes, plus you can use it for additional seating throughout the house. It could also be placed at the foot of a bed or potentially run along the backside of a floating couch for pillow and throw storage or displays.
