There is a debate about what determines whether an object is vintage. Some people rely on the definition of anything old that has some value. Others believe that the term refers only to objects old enough to have been “used”, but no more than two generations.
There are several reasons for the popularity of vintage design. Some claim that this phenomenon is due to the rarity and classical value of the objects. Others say that the reason is the result of a desire for originality and nostalgia, which creates a positive emotional appeal for people in a decade of their childhood or other experience.

The word “vintage” is of English origin and was first used to describe a high-quality wine made in a particular year that can be kept for many years to improve its quality (Cambridge Dictionary, 2014). From the 1990’s until today, the term “vintage” has been used in the world of fashion, design and decoration.
An object described as “vintage” must speak of the era in which it was produced. Vintage can mean that an object is made in a particular time period, but it can also mean that this object shows the best elements of a particular era. In other words, an object must be representative and recognisable as belonging to the period in which it was made. We can thus conclude that vintage products are old products that have been refreshed for today.

Therefore, vintage decoration has certain codes that characterize it. Concerning the colours, vintage decoration is mainly based on warm shades and sparkling tones that set the mood. Orange is the main colour, but also yellow and brown, which add a warmth to the space. The “sage” shade of green brings a touch of freshness and the contrast gives energy to the room. Concerning textures, wood predominates, but also other materials. Dark wood, however, is the perfect solution to give the space the ultimate vintage style.
For retro style, knitted reed is ideal and highlights chairs and furniture to make them very strong pieces of decoration. It matches perfectly with black and gives a touch of lightness. The brass, also with knitted reed gives a touch of elegance. We find it in lamps, mirrors, frames or other wall decorations, which are the refined details of vintage decoration.
