A recent survey by The Art Department at American University found that the art world is a place where antique furniture, wall and posters are considered chic and attractive.
“A lot of people who buy furniture and other pieces of art are collectors,” says Annalisa Zegna, a senior research associate in the Department of Art History at the university.
“It’s a way of saying, ‘I like this piece of art.
This is something I have a lot of respect for.'”

The Art History department conducted the survey to determine how art lovers perceive antique furniture and posters.
In an online poll, about 90 percent of respondents said they would buy antique furniture or posters.
A majority of respondents, 54 percent, said they prefer antique wallpaper or posters over antique furniture.

Zegnas says this means that people are “very interested in finding out what it’s like to have these things,” like antique furniture from a period.
And this fascination with antique furniture means that the objects are viewed as “cool” or “hip” in a way that a modern piece of furniture might not be.
And because of this, the value of a piece of artwork or antique furniture can be more easily measured than other types of art, like painting.
“We really do see this value in our survey.
People really want to know what it is like to be able to look at an old piece of a painting or sculpture,” Zegnas says.
“If they can see the piece as a piece that has value, they’ll appreciate it.”
It’s hard to tell if a piece is vintage, or whether it’s an authentic antique, but a recent survey found most people believe a piece can be either vintage or authentic.
And Zegnes says that the popularity of vintage furniture is a result of how many people have heard of it, and how much people know about it.
“It is a term that’s used to describe an art form,” Zepna says.
She says it was coined in the 1950s and 1960s, but now it is used more frequently by people who are collectors.
“In the past, a lot more people had this idea of ‘we are just going to hang a vintage piece of wall or ceiling,'” Zegnia says.
But even as antique furniture has become more widely recognized, it is still not an exact science.
“I think we can say that, in the U.S., there’s a very large percentage of people that are just not aware of the history of their home,” Ziegna says, “and the importance of knowing what’s up there.”
To better understand how this phenomenon works, The Art Design Center at American U. has conducted an online survey that asked a series of questions about each piece of antique furniture in the house.
In the first section of the survey, respondents were asked to rate the condition of the pieces they owned and how they felt about them.
The next section included questions about how well they understood the art form, like the artist’s name.
And then, in a separate section, the survey asked respondents to rate their own opinion of the art, such as the age of the piece, the type of work it was done, the number of colors and how the piece was presented.
The survey also asked people if they had ever seen a piece or artwork with an artist’s face, and what they thought of it.
The results of these questions helped the Art Department determine if the items were vintage or vintage art.
“People tend to be more interested in an artist who is very well known, so we wanted to see if people would rate an artist on their own personality as well as their work,” Zeps says.
The results showed that people rated an artist as having an average of 2.9 stars out of 5.
“And that’s a huge difference from other types in the survey,” she says.
And it was also a higher number than the average rating of the average art critic.
For Zepnas, the study was a fascinating study to examine because it gives an idea of how well people understand the history behind a piece.
“In the beginning, I thought I was doing something wrong,” Zevas says, and “then I realized that this is the way to learn more about art.”
