Retro and Vintage Furniture Stores in Australia
When it comes to retro and vintage furniture it is buyers and the public that are the trendsetters, not designers and retailers. In Australia, retro furniture is considered one of the Top 10 Furniture Trends of the Decade. The trend is driven by a younger generation, a buying public that is more imaginative and to a very large extent motivated by green awareness. Of course, there is also a touch of romanticism and nostalgia involved.
Retro and Vintage Furniture Stores – a Modern Phenomenon
The idea of modern vintage or modern retro furniture is a strange paradox. But it is a trend and much more than a fad.
Around the world savvy entrepreneurs who have recognised this trend have invested in stores specialising in vintage furniture, mostly mid-century with items from the 1950s and 1960s, being the most popular. These stores are far from a jumble sale, second-hand stores. They are typically of high quality, high street furniture stores that cater to a knowledgeable and discerning public. Here is a useful Guide to Buying Retro and Vintage Furniture.
What makes Retro Furniture ‘Green’?
Vintage furniture that has survived since the 1950s and 1960s are clearly well made, have proven their durability and is not involved in any current carbon footprint. Using quality retro furniture avoids landfill or even recycling and of course deforestation and factory waste. This is a very powerful argument for investing in vintage furniture.
