The vintage painted kitchen table is a classic. The distressed, rustic look has been shared by generations, loved by all and never out of style. But lets go deeper – where does this timeless love for the vintage kitchen table stem from? The rise of vintage furniture is hardly a new fad. People decorating their homes have long been interesting in redesigning styles of the past. But is the interest based on more than merely an aesthetic appeal? By reaffirming the styles of passed times, are we reaffirming the ideals of earlier family values? The kitchen table is perhaps a household’s most prominent feature.
It is the place of Christmas dinners, family arguments, lazy Sunday breakfasts. The original whitewashed painted, vintage style was introduced in age where the kitchen table was the true hub of the house, without the distraction of TV and laptops distracting us from dinner time. More than just a rustic style, it is a symbol of family tradition and the core of family values.
