The recent hype about an aesthetic Generation Z subculture is about Cottagecore. A very flowy, pastel, sunny, and flowery concept. This concept is associated with living a sustainable lifestyle and being vegan. Gen Z is applying the Cottagecore on their outfits, makeup looks, and even their rooms or homes. When it comes to decorating living spaces, the furniture that stands out the most is the vintage French provincial dining chairs.
Is vintage the new modern?
Style and trends always repeat themselves. At this point, what is vintage and what is modern in styling and decoration can be a little confusing. What we loved ten years ago in our clothing or makeup look is resurfacing again. The same goes for interior designing and furniture. Modern home designs look great, indeed, but there is something so nostalgic and regal about vintage designs that it is hard to resist them. The modern home designs with the voice activation system serve as a reminder that you live in the digital era. The vintage French chair or the vintage queen-sized bed can make you feel like a royal even if you are not one.
Nothing is boring about all the vintage furniture. They always look magnificent and beautiful. You can have a plain wooden table and add some vintage chairs around it. Yet, everyone will turn around to admire its beauty. Vintage furniture, be it small, or big manages to catch the guests’ eyes no matter how interesting the conversation is.
Even if you already have a modern design in your home, you can keep it. No need to root it out; add a few vintage chairs or a sofa suiting space, and you are good to go. Try to make the fusion loveable and not clumsy. Also, try to stick to the same color palette.
