20+ Photos Proving That Vintage Things Can Be Way Cooler Than Modern Items

2 years ago

Today, vintage things are becoming more and more popular because, often, they’re not only made better than modern items, but they also look way cooler. And people are happy to buy old furniture, wear vintage clothes and jewelry, and use appliances that are more than 50 years old.

We at Bright Side also love vintage things, and we’d love to have the lamp mentioned in photo № 6 and the couch from photo № 16. Too bad the latter costs $6,500.
