Vintage




What is vintage about? The word vintage comes from the French vendange, meaning the harvesting of grapes for winemaking. (From the Oxford English Dictionary)

But nowadays the word vintage is used mostly to reference something old or from the past. This meaning is closely related to the fashion and design worlds -  it is a revival of styles that marked an era.

Each vintage decoration item has a history and a life of its own. Decorating with vintage objects brings a piece of history to a room, making it interesting and unique.

If you like your vintage items with their old wore and used look or if you like to be creative and up-cycle them, vintage items are beautiful decorative objects and can be used for a totally different purpose from the one they were made for, adding character and charm to your home.
