Antique & Vintage Furniture
Antique and Vintage Furniture
The antique and vintage furniture market is huge and can often be confusing, as there are many different types of furniture as well as tastes, styles, and eras. Much focus has always been on 19th-century furniture like Queen Anne, Chippendale, Colonial and Victorian. Much of this style was influenced by European and British styles.
Modern 20th-century styles have gained recognition in the world of antique and vintage furniture. This includes Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern and Arts and Crafts. Regardless of category and era, quality is key with antique and vintage furniture. It is important to look for undamaged pieces that have been well cared for with original hardware and, if possible, finish as well.
Learn a piece’s history and originality if you can. Reproductions have been made in almost every style and piece of furniture out there. Any furniture collector, including Antique Allure, will tell you, buy only what you really like. This is because furniture goes in and out of style and values fluctuate as well.
