A set of Retail Stores and Venues....Actually a style of brand new furnishings and decor that do their best to emulate anything but what they actually are - contemporary products.
A style of decor that has an already broke-in look at the bare minimum -
It must fulfilling the desire to bring back all those items abused and thrown carelessly away in the past. A syndrome of societal guilt to pretend we never abandon our used.
I sincerely hope that we learn our lessons and archive and store instead of burn and trash.
None of these things are actually antiques, or from the places their style is named after:
Tuscan, Mediterranean, Vintage, French, World, Bulgarian, Rustic, Verdi, Shabby Chic, Victorian, Retro, Primitive, Restoration Hardware
