"retro" VS "vintage"

As you may have seen earlier this week, Jer Thorp has created visualizations depicting the rise and fall of certain design terms used in the NY Times over the last 25 years. He's looked at how "interior design" has become preferred to "decor" and how the word "retro" was barely used at all 25 years ago. What words would you like to see charted? Let us know after the jump...

Our friends at Ouno Design commented on the original post, asking if anyone has suggestions of ideas for some other word comparisons. One reader already suggested "contemporary" and "modern", terms that are often mis-interchanged. Do you have other suggestions? If so, please comment below.
