Home Decor to Buy Vintage Instead of Vintage-Like

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017 at 9:07pm Engel & Völkers Seattle Eastside

Vintage-inspired home decor is very popular but can cost you a pretty penny. There are many sweet vintage items you can purchase for less than their higher-priced knock offs. And as an added bonus, you may get better quality stuff! The construction and timelessness of these pieces will outlive the momentary trends. Sometimes it is worthwhile to wade through the stacks of chairs, perfectly antiquated mirrors, dusty artwork and treasure trove of industrial lighting.

 

Furniture

Glassware

Vintage glassware bring a sense of timelessness to your table. There is enough variety out there to fit any taste.

  

Cast Iron Cookware

Cast Iron found at a vintage dealer may have some rust and grime, but this cookware is meant to last a lifetime with the proper care.

 

Mirrors

An older mirror may be less functional than a new one, but when used decoratively, it can benefit from some age.

 

Lighting

Vintage lighting is a great way to add distinction to a room. Often, it just requires some rewiring to get it working again.

 

Pottery

Older ceramic and pottery pieces have a lot of character. Think outside the box when repurposing. An old gravy boat can become a cotton ball holder or a succulent planter!
