Out with the Old and In with the Antique: A Guide to Vintage Home Decor

Bobo Intriguing Objects Iron Desk Lamp

There’s something enchanting about antiques. Perhaps, it is their value, or maybe it is the way they carry history with them. It could even be the way they are reminiscent of those summers at grandma’s house. Many people love to put vintage decor in their homes, adding an antiquated touch to different rooms. While it is fun to add distinction to a home, it can sometimes be stressful finding the perfect piece of decor to complement the rest of the room. Here are a few things we carry that can enhance that timeworn finish you desire.

Vintage Light Fixtures

Of course! We have plenty of antique lamps, sconces, and pendants for you to choose from. With a wide variety of colors and styles modeled after the early 20th century, the possibilities are endless. From industrial wire cage pendants to vintage pharmacy lamps, we have plenty of fixtures that are suited to fit you. Pair a saucer shade wall sconce with an iron desk lamp, or create a matching set of wire cage pendants and sconces. Add the Uttermost decorative glass jugs to complement the archaic look.

Vintage Model Cars, Boats, and Planes

Some of the timeless classics that children enjoyed long ago are being brought back to life through the Authentic Models reproductions of flight models, model cars, and model ships and boats. The handcrafted reproductions are made with authentic materials such as wood, leather, and aluminum, magnifying the extraordinary exquisiteness of these beautiful pieces. These vintage models add a nostalgic, yet refined charm to any room.

Let’s not forget that with your antique style, you will need antique light bulbs for a complete look! We have plenty of bulb shapes and wattages to embellish the antiquated appearance you are trying to achieve.
