Yum! I love vintage-the ultimate in re-use, because quality designers produce quality products. Thats an argument for purchasing things that will last, instead of toxic MDF junk furniture or temporary fixes. Modernity has a wide range: ceramics, jewelry, furniture, etc. The prices reflect quality vintage pieces. Yes, it is worth it--this stuff will be around for many more generations to come. Pierre Paulin is one of my faves and so is green!
