With furniture, you may want to look for key words aside from made in the U.S.A. For example, kiln-dried frames are higher quality than frames that have not been kiln-dried. The same goes for taking note of what fabrics are being used, and so forth. With other items, its pick and choose. When youre out shopping for home accessories and you pick an item up, you should feel whether it feels shoddy and cheap, or whether it feels sturdy and well constructed. Its really all about the feel of the item. Just be cautious and go with your gut instinct.
Many Americans dont know the true difference between "antique" and "vintage" home accessories and decor. Whether its furniture, wall art or a random knick-knack, not all home accessories can be classified as an "antique," even if it at an antique store, nor is everything vintage, or even retro, for that matter. Heres the low down on the differences between "antique," "vintage," "retro," or "collectible" home decor. Any item that is a minimum of 100 years of age is considered an "antique." This applies to furniture, clothing, home accessories, paintings, old farm equipment-you name it. If it at least 100 (but no, you great great aunt does not count,) then it an antique.
The actual definition of what classified as vintage, retro or collectible can vary from person to person, from dealer to dealer. Fortunately, there are a large group who feel the terms apply as follows: The term collectible can refer to an item of any age between 0 and 99 years, as once it reaches 100 years of age, it is an antique for an intents and purposes. A variety of items can be deemed collectible from mid century modern styled furniture to a movie figurine produced in the 1980s. Meanwhile, the term vintage refers to items that are typically less than 25 years of age. However, in some circles, vintage can also refer to items that have circled back into fashion, including those that are more or less than 25 years of age. The term can also be used to describe items from the 1960s into the late 1970s, making an official, wide-spread definition of the term a bit difficult. A number of home accessories from the 1960s to the 1970s are re-surging in popularity, including wall art such as Andy Warhol prints.
