So what is the difference between antique furniture, vintage or retro?
Antique furniture can be described as a work of art, furniture, or decorative object created more than 100 years ago. Antiques are like a piece of great artwork, they may not be your everyday furniture but should be seen as investments, which when combined with other styles, give your home design depth and character.
Vintage items reflect the era they were produced in. As well as being of a certain period of time, an item can be called vintage if it exhibits the best qualities associated with or belonging to that era, as in “vintage 1940’s”, it’s widely understood that vintage cannot describe anything under 20 years of age.
Retro furniture is not necessarily old but reflects styles and designs of the recent past.
By incorporating antique and mid-century furniture into your home, you are adding historic pieces of furniture, mixing old-world design with new and modern, which creates a unique layered look to your home.
Vintage pieces and antique furniture that contrast adds warmth to any room by mixing textures and styles. A traditional piece of mid-century antique furniture in your living space can be the perfect centrepiece of your home decor.
Beauty and history are not the only reasons for loving antique furniture, because antiques have already been produced and are still in use, they have a much lower carbon footprint than brand new furniture. Instead of manufacturing companies using new materials in making items from scratch, you are assisting in the fight against environmental pollution. Antiques create a more personal look that is much harder to replicate using existing resources whilst significantly reducing our carbon footprint.
A piece of antique furniture has its own story, which started long before you were lucky enough to inherit, purchase, or stumble across it. They will never go out of style and can become extremely valuable. In addition, one of the nicest benefits of owning a piece of antique; no two pieces will be exactly alike since it is not mass-produced.
Antique furniture doesn’t always have to be the centrepiece of a room, instead, it can add a more subtle character in the form of accent tables, accessories, gilt mirrors or artwork. The best vintage light fixtures can make a huge impact on the overall decor of a room and create luxurious areas that will transport your home to a bygone era. In fact, items with vibrant fabrics, and other eye-catching items can be the hallmark of your decor.
The only rule of thumb for finding the perfect antique for your space is to simply follow your instincts and be open-minded about how the piece might be used in the space. Instead of putting an antique or vintage wardrobe in your bedroom for clothes, place it in your living room to display your prized artefacts.
Bring it all together by adding decorations like an antique chandelier.
A collectable look adds a sense of history and beauty to home decor, and this is easily achieved by mixing vintage and antique items from different eras.
