Vintage Office Pieces
Whether you are decorating your home office or your space in an office building, you want the room to reflect your personal aesthetic. Creating this look is different for everyone, but using vintage pieces can go a long way towards creating the perfect aesthetic.
What Is Vintage?
Before deciding to use vintage furniture in your office, it is important to understand what makes a piece qualify as vintage. Vintage refers to any item from a previous generation. True vintage pieces will be at least 50 years old.
Using Vintage Pieces
By using vintage pieces or vintage reproductions in your office, you can create a rustic aesthetic in a space that can often feel cold and impersonal. Many offices are built and designed to look the same in the pursuit of productivity, so throwing in your unique style can help shake things up. Not only will this touch of style bring your aesthetic into a space, but it will help you feel more at home and comfortable in the place you will be spending a lot of your time.
With any type of interior design, it is important to consider the balance and proportion of the pieces you are using. While picking the pieces you want to use, be sure you are looking at balance and proportion in regards to the style, color, shape, and texture of the pieces you are selecting.
One of the best ways to use vintage pieces or vintage reproductions is by contrasting them with other, more modern pieces. Quickly liven up your office and make it the center of attention by combining a vintage desk with a modern desk chair.
Choosing Your Vintage or Reproduction Piece
In many offices, the desk is the focal point of the room. This piece will set the tone for the entire room and will be the first thing a visitor will notice. Since you will be spending most of your time at your desk, you want to be sure it is not only comfortable to work at, but also matches your style. The size you want will vary depending on the type of work you do. If you need a lot of workspace, it is possible to find vintage desks that will fill the space in any room. For work that requires less desk space, you can go for a smaller vintage desk and leave room for lounging during breaks.
Whether you combine it with a vintage desk or use it solo, a vintage bookcase can completely transform the vibe in any room. Not only do they look great, but vintage bookcases will give you plenty of space to store your files, books, and other important belongings. Vintage bookcases also frequently include compartments to store files that you do not want just sitting around on your desk.
Some offices may not allow for much customization, and in those instances it is best to go for smaller changes to your space. Even something as small as a lamp can make a huge change to your space.
