There’s a revival underway - antique brown furniture is once again taking up residence in our livingrooms, diningrooms, bedrooms and kitchens. In this latest iteration singular antiques are mixing it up with contemporary furniture creating warm and sophisticated spaces.
While scrolling through the images below you’ll see the key to making antiques work seamlessly in today’s more relaxed surroundings is to balance the room with a backdrop of white or creamy walls. Also, paired with contemporary furniture’s straight architectural lines creates a pleasing dynamic with the antique piece, which adds richness and texture of age.
The other good news is that brown wood antiques have been out of vogue for so long there are bargains to be had in flea markets and auction houses alike. As we all do our bit to preserve the environment, this furniture gains another lease on life and their value will probably start to increase too.
