Vintage style offers all the nostalgic appeal of the past, featuring unique, distinctive pieces picked up from street markets or found in the cellar. Skilful combinations of different materials, furnishings, shapes and geometric patterns create visually striking solutions.
Typical elements of vintage style include period lamps and sideboards, sofas and armchairs reupholstered in leather or velvet, copper objects, vintage china, coloured fridges, old radios, record-players, trunks, bookcases and drawer units from a bygone age, as well as curtains, paintings and mirrors with a distinctly retro flavour.
Vintage style is all about impeccable detail and carefully chosen flooring and coverings, the founding element for any décor style.
Casalgrande Padana offers Le Ville, Macro and Terrazzo, three porcelain stoneware collections that bring a modern edge to traditional Venetian terrazzo flooring, a favourite for creating a vintage-style décor look. An ode to beauty, in which the traditional artisan grit is teamed with the excellent technical performance of porcelain stoneware to offer maximum creative freedom. These three terrazzo-effect porcelain stoneware collections are perfect for recreating classic looks. Fragments of different sizes, random patterns and seamless surfaces create richly beautiful geometries, ideal for shaping uniquely stylish new projects.
