The Vintage Style: Timeless Elegance

Trends and fashions come and go, and in many cases they go full circle in a few decades and come back into fashion (bellbottom trousers were all the rage in the seventies). Yet there is one style concept that has weathered time, namely the vintage style. Rich timbers and shiny leather, with brass and copper to add a splash of colour make for character, especially in a rural setting.

Visit Auctions

These are great places when you are looking for something unique in the vintage furniture category; elderly people bequeath their property to their children and in many cases, the entire house contents are put up for auction. Besides, it is great fun and you never know what you might run into! A Google search will help you find out when and where auctions are taking place and there’s no better way to spend an afternoon than browsing old furniture.

Online Forums & Facebook Groups

There are many groups dedicated to Art Deco & vintage furniture and joining will broaden your horizons in more ways than one. Join local items for sale groups and browse on a daily basis and you might get lucky.

Walnut Study

The ultimate vintage look is the walnut paneled study with military desk and a couple of vintage leather armchairs and if you would like some design inspiration, Google Images is always ready to source stunning examples of vintage rooms.

Caring for Leather Furniture

While leather furniture is as durable as it gets, it does require some TLC and applying leather protection and special wax polish, you can keep your vintage leather furniture looking great. If you are unsure about anything, talk to a supplier of such furniture, as they have all the care solutions.

The vintage look is always popular and with some careful acquisitions, you can create your own special space for those long winter evenings by the open fire.
