antique furniture adds personality and character to your home

Eco-Friendly

When you purchase antique furniture, you’re actually doing your part to go green. Many big box furniture store are extremely unsustainable. The materials and process they use to manufacture their furniture in mass amounts is bad for the environment. On the contrary, purchasing and incorporating used and antique furniture into your home means you’re not contributing to poor sustainability and environmental concerns.

 

Antique Furniture is Quality Furniture

A lot of furniture made today should not be considered high quality. It’s simply mass-produced and made to make a profit by large companies. On the other hand, antique furniture is and was made much better. Instead of using light and inexpensive particle board, older or vintage furniture is made from quality and pure materials, which is why it is usually much heavier than the furniture being built today and lasts much, much longer.

Personality & Uniqueness

Antique furniture has an enormous amount of personality in comparison to modern furniture today. Although modern furniture has many good qualities, and some may actually prefer it, it just doesn’t offer the overall level of uniqueness and character that comes with vintage furniture. Especially with many younger generations never experiencing much of this era of furniture, it’s a great time to collect it and enjoy the character and personality that comes with it. 

 

Antique Furniture Has a Story to Tell

Whether there is a piece of antique furniture that has been in your family for many decades or you just happen to stumble upon it in your favourite vintage or antique furniture store, it can tell a great story. Some old furniture might be special to us because of the fact that it was used and owned by a grandparent or another relative of ours. Some vintage furniture is valuable to us because we just happened to see it and fell absolutely in love with it.
