Are you thinking about adding a few pieces of antique furniture to your household?
If so, then you might be interested to know that although “antiquing” is generally used to clump together a vast reservoir of furniture, there are actually a number of different styles of antiques you could approach, each replete with its own historical intricacies.
To use just one example, the picture below showcases how different chair styles can impact the ultimate aesthetic of the piece.
In this video, you can get an overview of several of the basic styles and periods that antique furniture might represent.
If you grasp the basics behind these styles, you’ll be in a better position when it comes time to select which period you’d like to instill in your house.
As we in the antique business say, there’s nothing worse than mixinig styles out of ignorance! It’s far better to know which periods produced which styles of furniture, so you can better match your pieces room by room.
Hope you enjoy.
