The inclusiveness of culture and history is the characteristic of American furniture. There is an inexpressible momentum in the size of American vintage furniture, and a small insect eye or a small lacquer on the furniture seems to be inadvertent, but in fact it is a “deliberate” design. ——In order to emphasize the heritage of history and the cultural heritage.
In modern life, many old furniture that has been used for a long time is always easy to be abandoned. But the American vintage furniture pays attention to the fine craftsmanship, with the retro as the soul and the love of the old craft.
Destruction is a process in which American vintage furniture fully reflects the antique effect in the process of alteration. It mainly imitates wormholes, traces, exposed ribs, printing and abrasion, and shapes the effect of historical continuation.
Here are a few American vintage furniture styles .
Sickle marks: Sickle marks are traces of the sliding of a piece of jagged object in the long-term use or storage of furniture.
Chamfering, chamfering: imitating the wear and tear of furniture in areas or corners that have been frequently used for a long time.
Hammer marks: Hammer marks are traces left after being hammered at a certain angle with a hammer. It is mainly to imitate the marks that are crushed or stabbed by other objects during long-term use of furniture. Depending on the size of the impactor, such traces are large and small, and the shapes are varied.
Cloth printing is essentially a color and layer treatment. It is brushed by hand to make the surface of the furniture have deep, medium and light colors, which forms a kind of furniture that has been degraded by long-term use.
American vintage furniture pursues the historical sense of its use, and the most common method is polishing. First apply a few lacquers and sand the lacquer layer with a random sandpaper on the surface of the furniture to achieve a natural wear. Of course, this is a simple appearance. The real American painting is the most complicated in all techniques. It needs to be bleached, filled, sanded, destroyed, and then painted.
