I think every home can afford the use of at-least one antique. Even if you're someone who is a diehard modernist, I encourage you to make a purchase of something old; even if it's a 1960's modern accessory of sort. A piece of furniture or accessory from another era tells a story, and everyone loves a good story. It also makes a home feel collected, interesting and it brings an element of charm. Piece by piece, and purchase by purchase, a home is curated and collected. And a collected home, just feels so dang good!
