There´s something about vintage furniture pieces. They make a home look original and personal. Other than the built quality, vintage pieces usually tell a story. Finding out and fantasizing about where a chair or table came from, who the person was that owned it and the reason why he or she bought this piece of furniture make it a unique experience, which you could never have with a new piece. Personally, I like vintage the most when it is combined with a few newer pieces. Old and new go really well together if you ask me.
