Wonderfully worn

There is one trend that doesn't seem to have made it to the west of Ireland and that is the worn vintage look. Every home I go into here is full of new furniture, the best word I can think of to describe these interiors is shiny! Everything is brand new.  I guess this is an after effect that started with the Celtic Tiger (the decade of Economic high before we came crashing down with a big bang a few years back).

Because this trend hasn't hit, it is very hard to find any inspiring pieces of vintage or worn furniture. If anyone knows of anywhere on the west coast of Ireland then please do let me know. Anyway, in order for me to get my fix of all things wonderfully worn, I figured I would post a few images of a vintage variety today. Which do you prefer - old or new? I personally like a mix.
