Go Retro with Our Vintage Styled Furniture in Palm Beach Gardens

There’s something very “homey” about vintage styled furniture. A well-decorated home in a vintage style might make you feel like you’re back in your grandparents’ home. While the style is often confused with Shabby Chic, there are some distinct differences between the two. While both styles offer an air of elegant neglect with peeling paint, age distressing, and a well-loved appearance, the primary difference can be found in the accents and accessories used throughout the Vintage or Shabby Chic home.

Fabulous Fabrics

Fabric is a very key element of vintage décor and vintage styled furniture in Palm Beach Gardens. The vintage style harks back to the war years of the 1930s and 1940s. Fabrics were scarce and home makers often made do with what they could find. Grain bags were one plentiful source of fabric, and many creative women printed these used bags with patterns and used them throughout their homes. These true vintage bags are in high demand amongst modern collectors. Other staple fabrics include linen and oilcloth as well as upholstery in calico prints.

Aged Accessories

While true vintage accessories can be hard to find, try to get your hands on some lovely old items at flea markets and antique stores. Items like butter churns, wire egg baskets, old cook books, wooden trunks, vintage andirons, and hand-wrought tools can give your home that distinct vintage charm.
