Black and White design - vintage style

Classic, clean, sophisticated, modern - black and white makes a bold design statement. The two contrasting colors always produce strong graphic results in a room and naturally draws the eye. Over the past few years black and white has become a popular decorating trend and many home furnishings stores, such as Pottery Barn, have offered a broad range of furniture and accessories to complete these rooms. But for us, it's out with the "new" and in with the "old" - yes we said that correctly. Our love for vintage pieces has us out looking for black and white in vintage style. Recently we found these amazing salesman sample signs from the 1930's. The sign painter, from NYC produced these samples to show his ability to produce trade signs to his prospective clients. Hand painted on board the small signs measuring 7" x 7" look stylish when matted and framed. We have them hanging in a group of 4 on our dining room wall. You can have these 1930's sample trade signs in your own home. Visit our website rescripted to purchase these amazing vintage signs. They are featured in the category Urban Design.

I love black & white and these are so cool. I would never have thought of using something like this in that way. Thanks for the ideas of how to use vintage things in my home.
