The new characteristics of Amsterdam. Amsterdam increasingly values the used, genuine, and authentic products, concepts or ideas. Visited by numerous seamen, traders, and citizens of the former colonies, Amsterdam has embraced its diversity fully. Also the established niches, such as vintage or second-hand products have become regulars in home-decor, just as much as reuse or alternative use. Modesty and a hint of extravagance meet somewhere in the middle. It is this delicate manner of balancing that typifies many of Amsterdam’s interiors. The city’s residents have adopted a particular compromise, which mediates between displaying history, good taste, prosperity, and practicality.
