Old Style for the New World

What may have begun with a few inspirational designers creating fresh interiors with traditional pieces (Vicente Wolf, Daryl Carter, for starters) now has mass-market momentum. Stores such as Restoration Hardware simply cater to our hunger, offering nothing but time-worn furniture and fixtures with that certain industrial flair. And the online shopping world is no straggler when it comes to this trend. Sites such as 1st dibs have exploded in popularity.
