- What does "Vintage" really mean?
The term "Vintage" has multiple meanings and ways it is used today, which often leads to confusion. Here at Noden, "Vintage" is a term we use very clearly and carefully to describe items over 50 years old, but less than 100, and is also used to date something that was produced within a particular period. If a particular item is described as "Vintage Hans Wegner chair, Denmark - 1960's...", that means it was produced during the 1960's and is at least 50 years old.
Due to the fact that many iconic designs from the 1930's - 1950's are still in production since its launch, we describe some 1980's production pieces as "Vintage". Furniture pieces over 35 years old at Noden is described as vintage. We never use the word "Vintage" loosely and we endeavour to be as clear and accurate as possible with our photos and description of every piece at Noden.

"Antique" is a term used to describe something manufactured at least 100 years ago.
