Iconic furniture:

The best design furniture with a vintage touch are definitely those belonging to the famous companies Knoll, Vitra or BD Barcelona Design… Their products can be perfectly combined with the most innovative materials such as fenix or the new antibacterial surfaces, which are treated with a silver ion compound and eliminate 99.9% of germs, viruses and bacteria that proliferate and lurk in the home.

Vienna straw:

Another element that is back in vogue, revisited in a modern key, is the so-called “Vienna straw”, famous thanks to the famous “bistro chairs”, produced by hand weaving the straw. A poor and natural element by definition, which today is reproposed as a refined and elegant complement on seats, tables, headboards, lamps and accessories.

Vintage style has never really gone out of fashion. Many have been and still are  the lovers of this lifestyle, which in this period, more than ever, seems to have become a necessity. There are many reasons: economic crisis, environmental crisis, nostalgia for the quality with which objects were built in the past … The vintage mania has spread to all fields: clothing, home furnishings, travel, publishing, art and music…

But how is this full of charm style affecting interior design?

Decorating a house in a vintage style means surrounding yourself with personality, character, imperfections and charm. It is not necessary to randomly fill the house with lots of vintage objects or furniture, instead it is enough to choose carefully some pieces to be able to completely transform an environment creating an impressive visual impact.

It is advisable to start with small objects or a single piece of iconic design furniture that expresses all that there is to express. Don’t be afraid, in any case, to mix styles or colours (this is the beauty of interior design)… But without exaggerating!

Another secret to giving a touch of vintage style to an environment is to mix objects or/and furniture with neutral colors. Neutral colors have the ability to highlight the “imperfections” and the “lived-in” aspect of vintage.
