Purchasing a piece of vintage furniture is no different than buying a puppy - both require a bit of research, care and loving hands of a human, and it can certainly help save the environment! That said, let's discuss items to consider prior to becoming a new owner: ✔ Sustainability It's a wonderful investment as many are much sounder in constructing than any modern pieces of pressed wood or chipboard. ✔ Think form and fuction. You certainly don't want the item neither to take up the whole space, nor to fall out of your current design. ✔ Do research. Some can be rear collectables and some are just beautiful, so research a bit. ✔ Pay attention to the details. Refinishing is more expensive than a simple good cleaning. ✔ Negotiate. Don't hesitate asking the clerk about discounts. Many shops apply further reduces in price to the unsold items. ✔ Love. Just like every other person or thing, it requires love and care. Moreover, if you treat it like a treasure, it won't decrease in value. Not to mention, if you look further, vintage furniture can range between mid century modern, Art Deco and classical furniture pieces.

Donatas Voveris on Learn how to do the impossibleConsultant, professional board member & motivational speakerSome time ago
I can boldly state that the secret to overcoming big challenges, implementing “impossible” projects, having the desire (yes, desire!) to work extremely hard, give everything, and then some more is MEANING. One might ask how do you define meaning? It's very individual. To do something that no one has done before, to create, to change, to discover, to solve, to learn ... Also, to get recognition. By the way, recognition in most studies is # 1. By the way, for me recognition is also of the highest importance. And what about money? Research clearly shows that money is among the least motivating factors for people. Especially in the long run. On the other hand, even money could be successfully linked to a meaning - maybe for someone making as much money as possible is the ultimate meaning... What is meaning to you? 👇 https://www.vz.lt/verslo-balsas/2021/03/19/d-voveris-dideli-projektai-ivyksta-kai-yra-prasme
