Antique Reproduction Furniture - Add a Bit of Old World Charm to Your Interior Antique Reproduction Furniture adds a Bit of Old World Charm to Your Interior...which a few of us can afford since it is expensive. Fortunately there is a solution at Regent Antiques of London.
News-Antique.com - Oct 12,2011 - Many of us share a love for Old World tradition and the classic elegance to be found in a fine piece of English or Continental antique furniture, but few of us can afford the four or five figure price tag that comes with the genuine article. Fortunately there is a solution.
Antique reproduction furniture can provide the same look and feel at a fraction of the cost. In fact, you can enjoy a high quality reproduction of an antique item that could otherwise only be found in a museum or royal palace for little more than you would pay for the typical contemporary mass-produced item of the High Street.
From the traditional old English designs of the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian Eras to the unparalleled opulence of the court of Louis XV and the French Empire, the timeless designs of the Old World offer inspiration to a wide array of tastes.
Regent Antiques of London currently offer a fantastically ornate large carved French Louis XV style giltwood centre table fit for a king. The word “style” is the key here. This is not an antique period piece and only close inspection of the marble and giltwood would reveal this. If it were an antique, its price could very well run into the hundreds of thousands. It would be rare to find such an original piece outside of a museum or royal palace.
Also on offer is a stunning set of 8 Regency style dining room chairs and armchairs made from solid walnut. The burr walnut backs have been inlaid with decorations such as antique vases, feathers, and floral arrangements. These chairs are contemporary reproductions in the Regency style that combine a variety of appealing elements that may be difficult to find together in a comparable antique set. The chairs are utterly stunning and of the very highest quality. It may only be the purist that would insist on antiques and be willing to pay several times more for what is functionally and aesthetically essentially the same set of chairs.
For such a purist, Regent Antiques offer a rare opportunity to own an antique Victorian burr walnut dining room table, circa 1880. It comes complete with 8 chairs, comprising 6 side chairs and 2 armchairs. It will seat 8 comfortably and 10 in a pinch.
The table has its original wind out mechanism as well as two leaves which can be added when required. The table has also been crossbanded around the top to finish it off masterfully. This table was made by a highly-skilled master craftsman and should last for many generations.
The chairs are from the second half of the 20th century and compliment the table beautifully. They have been hand carved in soild walnut and are upholstered in leather which is a browny burnt orange in colour and they are all in excellent condition.
Apart from furniture, high quality antique reproductions can bring a variety of practical as well as decorative treasures to life. With fine porcelain, glassware,
