Like their fashion counterparts, interior designers have moved to mixing design elements from various price points and from different periods. Gone are the days when you’d furnish an entire room in one style or from one designer or store. The most beautiful spaces mix vintage with contemporary and feature one or two conversation pieces that you just had to have, even though it may not really “fit.” By conventional standards, true style comes from the unique story behind the assemblage of pieces and from buying what you love. Right now, we are loving contemporary designers and how much the category has evolved over the last few years. At 1stdibs, you can find the best pieces from the best designers in everything from console tables and mirrors, to rugs and couches.
