Who dares wins! The Used Novelty living style is for the brave who live out their creativity to the full, also use strong colours and above all set accents with extravagant designs. This also includes the use of objects in the vintage style: These often display signs of wear such as scratches or are striking individual pieces by dints or other small blemishes, and it is precisely these unique items that characterise the style.
As long as the time period for things to be classed as vintage remains vague, there is still scope for interpretation – starting from the industrial style of the 1920s to mid-century design. Thus, raw factory materials, galvanised steel, worn leather, original and worn wood, or even casual ornamentation can be used. On the other hand, kitchen items and pieces of furniture in colourful and vibrant colours of the 1950s and 1960s are also to be attributed to this style.
Anyone can take a piece of nostalgia home by buying an old piece of furniture from the flea market.
The chosen colour palette can be matched to the vintage piece of furniture. Creative, vibrant and playful colours put the piece of furniture in the spotlight and emphasise its character. Flooring which radiates a certain playfulness and visually completes the furnishings brings even more authenticity.
The Oak and ornament floors in the Used Look from EGGER are ideal for this.
EGGER Flooring offers many fancy floor designs that mirror the Used Novelty style. For woodgrain decors this may be a worn look with clear signs of wear. In this way the entire floor surface has its own story to tell. With scratches, knots and notches the floor is alive and has a vintage character. Even a daring colour scheme with strong tones in the floor look can convey an impression of creative freedom in the room. Also popular with flooring is the use of ornaments - either on the entire floor surface or only with individual elements. If you like vintage style, you can live out your creativity and individuality to the full!
