When tech ages it's often discarded or at the very least forgotten. It's easy to get caught up in technology's fast-paced world which is constantly focused on the “now” and the “next” (lets face it, we’re all guilty of it here). But we think its also important to reflect on our current technology’s predecessors. Just because an object is obsolete or broken doesn’t mean it's worthless. Not only is it easy to appreciate the aesthetic merits of these items but many can hold personal memories for their owners including their past usage or as a family heirloom. We’ve provided some great examples of homes that incorporate vintage tech as décor for inspiration.
