The older the better. It’s all about vintage this year.
At The Millionaire’s Daughter, we have witnessed a rebellion against mass-manufactured furniture and accessories, vintage style furniture has remained a major trend into 2014. The charm of collected, handcrafted furniture tells a story of a person who values unique qualities and loves pieces back to life. Look for old period pieces to mix in with new furniture, antique furniture is not only aesthetically pleasing but also usually handmade and of superior quality.
