Vintage: yay or nay? Love it or hate it, there’s no doubt vintage pieces can add quite a bit of class and history to your décor. Here are some ways that Fig + Farro went 100% reclaimed, compliments of Caitlin Rutkay of C.R. Interior Designs:
Located in a former schoolhouse, Fig + Farro’s 6,000 square feet of dining space, along with a 3,000-square-foot prep kitchen in the basement, is furnished almost entirely with reclaimed items.
The emphasis on reused and recycled items—including rugs, dining chairs and tables, kitchen equipment, and accessories like antique door knockers—helps further the restaurant’s mission to fight climate change by reducing carbon footprints.
Vintage pieces add a layer of history and texture new items cannot.

Scott Bradlee, creator of PostModern Jukebox, sat with Steve Adubatoon “One-on-One” to discuss how the company is taking modern pop songs and giving them a vintage twist that is reminiscent of the era of vinyl records.
Bradley describes PostModern Jukebox as “a community of artists”. This community has featured singerAddie Hamilton and American Idolalum Haley Reinhart.
“I wanted to create this alternate universe where today’s pop music would have existed many years ago,” he says. The modern songs that the company chooses are reimagined as though they were released back in the days of vinyl records and Motown.
