The black chair is by Cherner. The white chairs were vintage that I had upholstered.

I'm sorry, I can't remember who the manufacturer was. It was purchased some four years ago.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Space-Maximized Victorian in Toronto
Vintage furniture dominates the rooms. The thrill of the hunt is partly what draws Meisels to these pieces — as well as the endless customizations. "These items tend to be more whimsical and less expensive, with good-quality basics," she says. "I think this combination is what makes my home feel warm, inviting and a bit quirky while still maintaining its modernity."
Laura Gaskill added this to Decorate With Intention: 5 Key Furniture Pieces
Think about going vintage. For case goods especially, vintage pieces can be a better deal for high-quality construction than many new pieces on the market. If you love the midcentury modern look, seek out a vintage chest or sideboard. If you crave that posh decorator touch, give an antique dresser a coat of high-gloss paint for a glamorous look.Tell us: When you are buying furniture, what do you splurge on and what do you save on?

Some classic pieces — including a shag rug! — a minimalist approach, and a simple tricolor palette give this room a very calm, quiet feel.

8. Create vignettes that reflect your personality. There's nothing wrong with mimicking a look you love, but be sure your add personal touches that give clues about who you are, not just the store you shopped at.

7. Honor a special collection or hobby in a small way. There are two ways to deal with collections. Depending on how you feel, one option is to give the collection to someone who has a similar interest and can continue the hobby. The second is to display a portion of the collection while saving the remainder for another family member.

Midcentury pottery. I always snatch up groupings of multicolored pottery pieces when I find good ones. I prefer '50s and '60s era pieces, which come in a variety of sizes. Singles can be used as vases or sculpture, and groupings are great on sideboards and mantels.
Apartment 46 for the Home added this to How to Use Pottery to Elevate Your Decor
Arrange artfully. Give smaller pottery pieces an anchor by including them in groupings with larger pieces. Mixing shapes, colors and height may seem chaotic, but by keeping your groupings tight and placed purposefully toward one side of a surface — tabletop, credenza, bookcase — you create an installation that feels curated over time rather than purchased all at once just to fill the space. Placing taller items toward the back and pieces with more volume in the center will provide the foundation for your display. Medium-sized pottery can be added to build support, with the smallest pieces filling the gaps and rounding out the vignette.

Sideboard or bookcase. Maple glass-door cabinet?
