If you are like me and you care a lot about each unit of furniture in your proudly owned home, then you will be pleased to hear and see that much furniture styled from the past are now making a comeback and becoming more readily available at high-street stores as well as quality furniture websites that you will find while searching online. If you are not someone that is in the know about older furniture styles and trends then you be pleased to find out that the furniture manufacturers used to take a lot more care and give far more attention to creating pieces that would add character and style to the owners properties, while also being crafted to such a quality that they remained in-tact and looking great for many years. The materials used and workmanship applied to furniture of the past was just of another class entirely; there was a lot more hard-wood used and then metals like brass and copper & iron, which you just don’t find in today’s IKEA-like, put DIY furniture. Much of the furniture you find in the modern market, unfortunately just doesn’t last and can look really cheap and tacky after just a number of months, and although these items found in the shops today can be bought at a much cheaper unit price that those of the past, in the long-term you will end up having to spend more, because of needing to replace your items time and time again.
Some of the items you should look out for, that I am confident you will be interested in due to their attractive designs and efficient uses of space are units such as the old styled ‘SMEG’ kitchen fridge, heavy hard-wood home desk, brass framed double beds, large double mirrored wardrobes and a favourite for me that will add character to any room of any home, it the storage trunk, or during my childhood it was definitely called the ‘Toy Trunk’. The trunks come in various hard-woods and some metals and should most of the time be reasonably priced.
