What is Vintage?
If you’re decorating a girl’s vintage bedroom, the first thing we need to know is what kind or era should we focus on. According to The Spruce, basically, what is labeled vintage furniture is any piece that is between 30 to 100 years old. Furniture that is at least 100 years old is classified as antique. Newer vintage, like anything from the 1950s to 1980s, is generally thought of as retro within the vintage category, and any piece that dates from the ’80s or later is just simply used furniture. So an old furniture cannot be easily labeled as “vintage” it has to fit the era and a style that signified that era.
