The Second Time Around

October 01, 2006|Barbara Thornburg | Barbara Thornburg is a West senior editor and former president of the L.A. Conservancy and the Carroll Avenue Restoration Foundation.

With more lives than the proverbial cat, vintage objets are making a comeback, artfully reinvented for our 21st century lives: clock-face wall art, chemistry-beaker vases, building-star accessories, flat-file coffee tables, medical-cart bars, restaurant-plate art dishes. Evocative of another age, these singular incarnations add a layer of history to our contemporary homes, informing our present with a hint of the past. As you'll see, like love, old things are sometimes better the second time around.
