Because Old is Just, Well...Good

Chairs by Robin Day

Granted there's probably not a lot of convincing that needs to be done on the vast merits of vintage, but this quote by furniture designer Robin Day (via hoping for happy accidents) is pretty spot on.

Robin + Lucienne Day

"good design should endure, be designed to really last, be cherished and be a pleasure to use. in a way there's too much design going on just for the sake of newness. the only reason to design is to make something better, functionally, economically - not only in price but also in the use of materials and energy - and aesthetically. to always buy new is a great pity. if you make the right choice in the first place, you can grow to love things." - robin day

+ his wife Lucienne makes gorgeous textiles and prints...
