In the last few years we have seen a rise in old, vintage furniture being used in homes. Dramatic and rustic pieces with stories to tell that replace the shiny polished new designs found at fine furnishings stores. It’s become such a popular fashion that even those here in the valley have jumped on the bandwagon. How many of you have ventured to The Vintage Whites Market in the summers? I know we have spotted a few of you there. The style is so popular because we all like tying in the old with the new. Just think about the wedding tradition – “something borrowed, something blue, something old, and something new.” We here at Ciao particularly love the way vintage pieces create a more romantic and rustic appearance even in a room full of modern revelations – monitors, touch screens, and sleek granite counters. And, if you adore the more antiqued look as much as we do, you are sure to love these manufacturers.
Known for their use of recycled and reclaimed FSC certified materials, LH Imports is recognized globally for their environmentally friendly manufacturing. With them, you are sure to find your dream two-toned buffet, beautifully reclaimed wood dining table and chairs, and your picture perfect white-washed headboard and matching nightstands – all made responsibly and unique to your tastes.
Classic Home is one of our favorite go to manufacturers here at Ciao and for good reason. They make beautiful, ecofriendly furniture that is not only timeless and exquisite, but also harmonious to every design style. The Company thrives off of global inspiration and emphasizes most of their efforts on the reuse of discarded products. In fact, they pride themselves on using plantation grown and reclaimed wood, old architectural elements they then turn into functional furniture pieces, and even recycled water they treat for agricultural use. Thus, a great source for the vintage presence in your own home.
Mixing the eclectic with the modern world, Dovetail Furniture fashions stunning, handmade pieces that can be staged in nearly any home design. Embodying all things “rustic-chic,” the Company’s mission is to provide their clients with the trendiest looks at affordable pricing while crafting pieces using only the finest materials available. Instead of refurbishing that dresser for the umpteen time, shop Dovetail and your “weathered looking” pieces are sure to stand the test of time.
A Company that remains true to their Creole name meaning “soup that is never made the same way twice,” no two items from the company are exactly alike. Known for their worldly treasures and bohemian vibe, each item from Kalalou is an unique artisan piece, sure to be the conversation starter in any home.
