Vintage Gym Equipment as Home Decor

Here’s a clever decorating theme we’ve noticed recently: using vintage sports equipment as home decor for a low-key, old-school vibe.

Above L: A headboard fashioned from leather gym mats in a bedroom by Ashe + Leandro. Above R: A leather pommel horse at Alex MacArthur in Brighton, England.

For a similar idea with a nautical vibe, see Remodelista’s post, Accessories: Vintage Life Preservers as Decor.
