We are often confused by the terms old and vintage. Something that is old need not necessarily be a vintage piece. To be called vintage the piece needs to be an example of a definite style of a particular period. Vintage furniture is currently on trend, and there are several reasons for its popularity. As time flies, a vintage piece though unique will become uncommon and unusual. Having a vintage piece of furniture will lend your home individuality. They are easier on the pocket than buying a new one of the same quality and you will be helping the environment too as the finishing material is not off-gassing.
Compared to vintage furniture, modern furniture is more streamlined. It has a minimalist approach with simplicity, smoothness and very little ornamentation. Mostly machine made, modern furniture is available in a larger variety of shapes and sizes making it easier to adjust to your accommodation. At a time when huge houses are being replaced by smaller ones and homes are shrinking into apartments it makes more sense to get furniture that fits into your home.
The variety of material used in modern furniture also makes it less costly than the wooden vintage furniture. Plastic, plywood, steel and leather is used to craft present day furniture and therefore they suit every budget.
Having examples of vintage furniture designs available makes it easier for craftsmen to design furniture by imbibing the modern techniques to create old designs and replace monochromatic colours with bright and bold shades.
