Guest Post: Jennifer from Design Shuffle

Hi all! I’m Jennifer and I write for Design Shuffle, a social media site that chronicles the work of top interior designers around the world. I've been writing about home decor since graduating university and have loved it ever since. I'm addicted to patterned fabrics, Jonathan Adler, chaise lounges, old doors, milk glass jars, antiques, and more. I spend my days perusing catalogues and home decor blogs and the slews of press releases I receive from major PR agencies, with my pup Theo snoozing in my lap...enjoy the post below!

Some of the best decorating ideas begin with a single piece of furniture, like a retro-inspired tulip table or chairs. Curvaceous and seamless, they instantly turn traditional rooms into stylish modern spaces. Used in living room designs or as a great addition to a home office, tulip tables and chairs first rose to popularity in the mid 1950s and have had major staying power ever since.

Throwback flair via

One of the best dining room design ideas is using a fantastic white set of tulip chairs around a matching table - a retro light fixture and window treatments tie the whole look together.

Eclectic mix via Lindsey Lou! Blogs

Meld old and new with dated wood floors, a traditional crystal chandelier, vintage tear-drop printed wallpaper, and ecru-coloured tulip table and chairs.

Monochromatic panache via Live Creating Yourself

Black and white is always "in," especially in this posh eating area, with white furniture, black pillows and an incredibly textured floral wall.

Take a seat via Design Manifest

Create a conversation nook by pairing a dated desk and white tulip chairs decked out with matching seat pads - the framed wall print and table lamp are great finishing touches.

Whether it's a makeshift conference room in a home office or a unique dining room set-up, mixing things up is a daring but visually-appealing decorating idea, like this space with antique chairs as well as tulip chairs.

Stand-alone style via Decorpad

A tulip table surrounded by more traditional chairs is a bold kitchen design choice - the oversized mirror makes the room appear larger.

It's all 50s via decor8

Why not bring together two looks from the same retro-infused decade, like this tulip table and brown steam-bent chairs?

A side of chic via Lolalina

Ive den design a much-needed jumpstart with a great accessory, such as a dazzling area rug or modish tulip end table.
