Finally, the word retro has also been thrown into the mix. Retro is a bit more easy to define, as the vast majority of people believe and accept that this particular term applies to items made during the 1950s. Though some believe that it refers to items that are between 50 and 99 years old, for example: it may also apply to items that are Art Deco in style, (which was during the 1930s). Examples of retro furniture include mid century modern furniture and home decor. The truth is, unless there are papers or some other form of verification such as personal knowledge and a maker mark, it can be difficult to know exactly when an item was manufactured unless you are looking for a specific item that you have thoroughly researched. Even still, it easy to be fooled. Look for reputable dealers, especially when looking for furniture or legitimate artwork and other wall decor pieces, as you don want to pay big bucks for a big fake. If youre ever unsure, get in touch with a professional to come and evaluate the validity of the piece before you purchase.
Its true, by purchasing locally made or made in the U.S.A. products, youre cutting down on the amount of fossil fuels and other resources that are needed to transport these products from their country of origin and into the United States. That being said, it can be tricky to know exactly what to look for. Since the trend is growing, there are a plethora of items you can find that are made in the U.S.A. This includes furniture, light fixtures, various home accessories, clothing and so forth. Of course, as with any product (no matter where it hails from,) you need to take note of quality. For furniture, you may want to consider shaking the piece slightly to see how sturdy it is. If youre buying from an online retailer, you wont be able to do this. Instead, be sure to seek out customer reviews to ensure that the furniture youre purchasing is quality. If it isnt, youll see plenty of complaints to tell you otherwise.
Make sure that the items you are using fit into their new homes scale... you dont want one tiny paperweight on a large kitchen table, and you want to steer clear of using a huge ceiling high arrangement of flowers on a tiny end table. Most people tend to use things that are too small for their surroundings however. If you have small accessories you would like to display, but need to give them more oomph in the arrangement, try grouping them on a plate or a fabric covered box. You can also give them height by perching them atop stacked books or baskets.
