With a topic like houndstooth furniture, I could have spent the majority of a day searching pinboards and modern designers and turned up relatively little. I really love houndstooth though, and knew that its handsome, polished, mid-century vibe could lend itself well to upholstered furniture. When I finally realized that the inspiration I was searching for would be found in the cool vintage designs of the past, I looked no further than 1stDibs. This is one of my favorite places to search for awesome unique vintage furniture inspiration. 1stDibs connects “the world’s best dealers, finest shops and most important galleries with individuals.” You should definitely check them out if you haven’t already! Below are some of my top pics for handsome houndstooth vintage upholstery pieces that I found on 1stDibs, enjoy!
My favorite piece has to be the Ward Bennett Sofa (second image down). It’s just vintage wool houndstooth perfection. I think an awesome update to any of these would be to see them in a more vibrant color like pink or green. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
