Benefits of Buying Vintage
If you want to add a conversation piece to your home, opting for something vintage is a great option. Even if a piece of vintage furniture was mass-produced in its day, it's naturally going to be far less common now than something that is mass-produced today. If adorning your home with unique pieces with interesting histories is important to you, you will no doubt be drawn to antique and vintage items. Sustainability is another key benefit to buying vintage. The lovingly restored vintage furniture or decor that you bring home gets a second life instead of ending up in a landfill, and there is nothing more sustainable than that. vintage and antique wares also tend to be extremely well made of quality materials, increasing the likelihood that you can pass the piece down. Preserving a piece of history while adding something beautiful and unique to your home is the ultimate win-win.
Vintage and Antique Furniture Options
For something to be considered antique, it must have been made at least 100 years ago. Vintage items, however, must be a minimum of 20 years old. Rejuvenation's collection includes both vintage and antique furniture with Victorian tables circa 1890, Art and Crafts furniture from the 1910s, and Mid-Century sofas, and chairs from the 1960s.
