Not everything has to be brand new, but when it comes to choosing between a three-hundred-year-old sofa and one that is fresh from the carpenter’s workshop, we know which we’d prefer!
In this post, we’re going to tell you everything that you need to know about antique reproduction furniture!
1 – For what it lacks in authenticity, it makes up for with reliability
OK, so first of all it’s important to make it clear that antique reproduction furniture is, indeed, not the real deal. If you are looking to buy an original antique, then you have come to the right place.
However, if you don’t mind having an original, but simply love the look and feel of antique furniture, then you’d do well to hang around for a bit.
The fact is, what antique reproduction furniture lacks in originality, it makes up for with its pristine quality. It’s brand-new furniture, built by skilled craftsmen using modern techniques and reliable materials.
This means that when you purchase a piece of furniture, you can actually use it without being worried about breaking it. The fact is, when an antique piece of furniture gets damaged, it will significantly drop in value.
Antique reproduction furniture on the other hand: you’re not investing in it to save money; you’re spending a realistic amount of money on a functional piece of furniture that you plan to get a lot of use out of.
2 – It’s so much cheaper!
When you consider the fact that there is an antique cabinet out there that sold for $50,000,000, you’ll feel better about the fact that reproduction furniture doesn’t cost quite so much. In fact, antique furniture can at times, become ridiculously expensive, which puts a lot of people off.
However, if you love the look, then you can have a piece of furniture reproduced specifically for you, for a mere fraction of the cost. What more could you want? Unless you’re married to an antique critic, and you regularly host the antique-road shows in your home, you don’t have anything to worry about!
So, if you want to find some inexpensive furniture, find an antique reproduction shop, pick out some of your favorites and then place your order. It’s as simple as that! No hunting or bargaining, just a quick and easy transaction.
3 – Warranty please
When ordering an expensive piece of furniture, at the very least you’d expect to receive a warranty with it. Well, when ordering from an antique reproduction shop, you will get exactly that! You will be able to relax in the knowledge that if (in the unlikely event) your furniture was to break, then you’d be covered.
When spending fifty-thousand dollars on a desk for your home office, you won’t be so fortunate. As such, you’ll have to work very carefully, so as not to cause any irreparable damage.
