Antique Furniture: Out with the Old, In with the New (ish)

Everybody loves antique furniture, in that the pieces tend to look really cool, have a lot of awesome history behind them and are worth a lot of money. That said, they aren’t particularly very practical.

Sure, a piece of furniture which is 300 years old and has been around for several generations would be a nice thing to own. However, unless you’ve got an awful lot of space in your home and don’t mind never using it (through fear of breaking it), then they’re not the most practical of items.

Out with the old and in with the new (ish). That’s what we say! This is why we’re going to talk to you today about an antique reproduction shop, and why you might want to do have a browse for yourself.

Antique FurnitureWhat is antique reproduction furniture?

Well, it is what it sounds like. It’s furniture which has been constructed to look like antiques. Pretty cool right? In this post, we’ll take you through the advantages of investing in antique reproduction items.

New = reliable

First of all, let’s start off with the obvious fact that it’s brand new! When purchasing a piece of furniture, it’s nice to know that it isn’t going to break underneath you when you slump yourself down after a long day at work.

That’s the beauty in ordering antique reproduction furniture. In addition to that, you can’t rely on an antique dealer to offer you warranty on a piece of furniture. It’s one of those things where you buy it at your own risk.

Antique reproduction on the other hand is a far safer investment. It’s a significant amount cheaper, the materials are new and durable, and you’ll have a reasonable amount of warranty, for your peace of mind.

You’ll save a lot of money!

Antiques are great, but they’re ridiculously expensive. No one in their right mind would go into a modern furniture shop and pay more than five or six-grand for a sofa, so why would anyone want to pay several hundred for a sofa that’s lived longer than you, your grandmother and her grandmother before her?

This way, you can have a stunning looking piece of furniture, at a realistic price! And besides, do you know anyone who is honestly going to tell the difference?

Another great advantage is being able to order something to a specific style and design. Each item can be custom-made specifically for you. So, if you want to go for a certain look that you like, however need it to have a certain functionality, then you can have exactly that. Antique reproduction furniture is about getting the look but modernising it all-together!

You know it makes sense.
