Antique furniture can be a beautiful part of a sustainable lifestyle, as well as a link to the past. Not only do carefully selected pieces add artistry and the patina of age to any style interior, from traditional to contemporary, they bring more than an enduring part of history to your home.
Created with less-toxic products years ago, antiques have long since completed any chemical off-gassing, maintaining your home’s indoor air quality. By restoring and repairing fine furniture, the resource-intensive cycle of endless new production is slowed, as is the fossil-fuel based packaging and delivery system. Beautiful and sturdy, wood pieces made before the 21st Century were constructed with timber with tighter growth rings, which simply doesn’t exist today, enhancing its value as a treasured collectible.
