Vintage Vibes | Ireland's Homes, Interiors & Living
In Ireland's Homes Interiors & Living magazine, journalist Sara Austin advises readers on how to achieve a modern take on vintage interior styling and bring something personal, unique - and sustainable - to their home, including by buying at auction.
She writes, "buying vintage is the green, sustainable option – you are saving that piece from landfill. Longer term, a vintage piece might prove more cost-effective, better quality and ultimately a better investment. According to the 2022 Auction Technology Group Carbon Impact Report, ‘Over one million tonnes of greenhouse gases were saved by people buying at auction instead of their new equivalent. This is the equivalent of 50 million trees growing for one year.’
