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.
For a maximum effect and to make interesting wall arrangements that can become a dynamic focal point of the room, try to hang smaller pictures in a cluster. If you hang an even number of smaller prints tightly together in a cluster, this will help balance out a large space and give a window effect in a small space. Remember to hang the prints together tightly to create one unit and one focal point. For larger pictures, place them in proportion to the furniture. For example, hang a large picture approximately six to nine inches above a sofa or at eye level. By hanging a larger print too high above any piece of furniture can leave both pieces feeling disconnected.
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.
