Dark Wood Styles Make a Comeback
For quite a while, the trend in interior home design has been to use light woods, light colors, and light placement to achieve a light and flowing style. While this approach to design is a very good one, and has given us many years of light, modern style, there is an emerging trend of returning to the rich, darker woods and styles that give antique fine furniture their uniqueness and character.
Rich and ornately carved mahogany desks, cedar and walnut tables, all of these used to be the staple in American homes for their strength, durability, and style. Today, these styles of wood are seeing a very high resurgence in both popularity and value. Luxury furniture enthusiasts are seeking out original antiques, as well as antique reproduction furniture in order to meet the renewed demand for such pieces.
No matter what room you are designing for, your home can reap the benefits of an antique style as well. Antique Purveyor is an online retailer of fine furniture. The collections and pieces in their online store are beautiful and timeless, and affordable shipping rates are available.
