Vintage Barber Chairs vs Antique Barber Chairs
I’m still partial to the vintage barber’s chair, myself, but I don’t judge others for their chair preference. Ha ha. There are enough barber’s chairs to go around. But the vintage barber chairs remind of my childhood. Even as little boy I was drawn to the amount of detail that was put into their metal work. I could not tell you what type of metal was used but I knew what I liked.
Now there's a lot of people who reference vintage barber chairs and antique barber chairs interchangeably. Let me set the record straight right now. The word antique means that something has a high value because of its age. The word vintage refers to something of high value because of its design and uniqueness. So sure, a barber's chair can be both vintage and antique, but I have yet to find one that I like.
Me, I’m not a barber but I am a guy who admires the detail and the talent that goes into making what I consider some of the best barber’s chairs ever made.
