Contemporary, mass-produced furniture loses its aesthetic values very quickly while vintge objects seem to preserve their beauty forever. Is it a question of craftsmanship, the loving touch of artisan hand? Is it a question of material? Pieces made of noble, genuine materials, solid wood, leather, linen, felt or metal, age with dignity and with time become even more visually attractive. Patinated, rusted, worn-out and faded... why do we love them so much? I think the reason might be that vitage, being a witness of the past, addresses our need of continuity. The need of knowing our personal, family history and... belonging.
Browsing through the selection of vintage objects from Factory 20 I got lost in time. Each piece tells a story: from Early Century harbour or doctor's office, from artist's atelier, French farm, Victorian bedroom or Danish kitchen. A treasure box!
