Forget minimalism. People everywhere are going back to their roots- to the beauty of history. The world is realizing with more and more vigor that there is an otherworldly charm to old objects that cannot be matched by the most glamorous and well crafted of modern creations.

Today, the trend is to veer away from crass representations of “New Money” in the form of sleek, overpriced and minimalist furniture and interiors. Instead, more and more design-savvy folk are finding love in vintage objects, vintage chairs and tables, and anything that has historical value. Basically, people are beginning to understand the importance of stories of the past.

It also helps that old furniture is a good investment. People are paying good money to buy vintage rocking chairs, lamps and chinaware. When one looks at the stuff of the previous generation, one is more inspired and charmed by the feel of the past.

It is probably a good idea to explore antique stores and score some great finds. Be willing to experiment and add an eclectic mix to make a house more beautiful. A mix of the young and old is a perfect representation of one’s personality. Mix paisley prints, embroidery and knitting work with old, hardened and polished wood. Invest in heavy furniture and objects like Grandfather clocks and dense rocking chairs.

It is a good idea to look for quality. A piece of furniture that looks good but is really old is an easy way to test its quality. It pretty much means that if it has lasted this long without withering away, it is definitely a keeper.

Remember one important thing: it is extremely important to be flexible. Do not clutter a space just because you don’t want to ignore pieces you like. Be practical, don’t overspend, and stick to a theme.
