If you have decided to decorate the interior with “a touch of antiquity”, you need to choose exactly what you want – antique or vintage lights. Vintage and antique are different things. Antiques have a history of over 50 years. Vintage-style items refer to a period that is no less than 15 years but no more than 50 years. Antique chandeliers are placed in houses that are located in the historical part of the city.
Antiquities look harmonious in interiors with elements of historical styles. However, it suits modern homes when they are housed in historic buildings that have retained old-fashioned features. Vintage always retains the style of its era. It is good for kitsch, postmodernism and art deco style interiors.
When choosing vintage lighting fixtures, you should find the units that have the spirit of the same era as the other interior objects. Take into account the internal area and the ceiling height. Spacious homes greet antique chandeliers. A small bedroom is the perfect place to place a small oil lamp on the bedside table or mini wall sconces.
Vintage lamps, various stylish chandeliers, floor and table lamps go well with apartments in Scandinavian style, loft style or retro. Both vintage and antique lamps and chandeliers, sconces, and pendants are commonly found in flea markets and antique shops. Thrift store is the perfect place to find a unique vintage lamp.
