Most of us love the look and feel of a space that has a vintage touch, it is so charming and comforting. But have we often wondered what we need to consider when we want to create the look ourselves. Do we really know what Vintage actually means?
Often the word vintage is interchangeably used with antique. Whenever we buy anything for our home like furniture, rug, lighting or artwork which is from the historical time we categorize it as antique or vintage without actually knowing the difference.
Antique is generally used for items that are greater than 100 years old, however vintage is for items that are over 30 years old but less than 100 years old.
