Finding the perfect piece to complement your décor is not always as easy as you would wish it to be.

Our collection is comprised of high quality furniture. But don’t take our word for it; we will give you a quick guide against which you can check out products. When they pass the test, and they sure will, you can always make your pick. And if you do not find a piece that suit your tastes, which is unlikely, we will help you look for it elsewhere in a wide network of antique sellers. Here are the guidelines for buying antique furniture.
Check the Quality
Most antiques are solid wood, handmade, intricate designs made by amazingly talented artisans. Most of these items bears the signature (or brand) of the designer or artisan. Therefore, search for the brands that you like. You will find that today there are countless fake, mass-produced items with distressed finished mimicking aged furniture. Therefore, always try to find the artisan’s stamp, label, and signature, and pay attention to the workmanship of the piece you want to buy. Be on the look out!
Check for Damage
Keep in mind that damaged furniture are likely to cost a fortune in repairs. While regular wear and tear are expected since they are timeless pieces, you need not buy anything whose damage does not render the piece malfunctioned.
Decide On Repairs, Replacements and Refinished Furniture
Repairs usually mean that the original furniture piece has been fixed back while replacements mean an entirely new piece has been used. It is also important to decide whether you want a piece in its original finishes (even if time has made it a tad shabby) or you wouldn’t mind a refinish. Original finishes maybe a tad crazed on the surface and have slightly cracked vanish. Refinished furniture is bright and shining.
