What characteristics are common?

Antique furniture can be recognized by a variety of characteristic features.

  1. Solid wood and handcrafting: Antique furniture is usually made of solid wood and was made by hand. Many have elaborate decorations, carvings or were refined with inlays. Fine woods such as oak, cherry, ash, birch or walnut were often used to make the furniture. But since high-quality wood was expensive even then, veneers were used. This means that the carpenter made a chest of drawers out of spruce and used a walnut veneer on the spruce, for example. This is several millimeters thick. Today, veneers are hardly more than 1 mm thick. So - the thicker the veneer, the older the furniture. Incidentally, the highest quality and most valuable furniture is veneered. Softwood furniture, on the other hand, was considered the furniture of the common people. These were often painted dark to imitate the fine types of wood. Today, softwood furniture is in great demand again. Stripped or sanded, they have a beautiful, light surface. They represent rustic chic and coziness.
  2. Irregular edges and soft corners: Antique furniture often has irregular edges and rounded corners. The carpenters did not yet have machines to master clear edges, corners and straight lines. Craftsmanship was required. For this reason, many antiques have soft shapes. It was only later - from around 1840 onwards - that circular saws or milling machines became available.
  3. Signs of wear and patina: A special feature of antique furniture is the patina. The natural aging of the wood, exposure to sunlight and signs of wear cause the surface to change over the years. It appears more vibrant and gives the furniture a special charm.
  4. Old nails, screws and wooden wedges: The use of old nails, screws or wooden wedges is typical of antique furniture and indicates its authentic origin.
  5. Characteristics of different eras: Each era has its own style and therefore special characteristics. The furniture of the different eras often differs in its construction, the design of the fittings and locks or the use of wood. These details make it possible to assign it to a specific era.

When do we speak of antique?

To be considered "antique", a piece of furniture must be at least 100 years old. In addition, a maximum of 30% of the furniture may have been changed. Therefore, restoration should be carried out carefully. If a piece of furniture is 20 to 80 years old, it is referred to as vintage furniture. Mid-century furniture from the 50s, 60s and 70s is particularly popular.

Why buy antique furniture?

There are many & good reasons!

Antique furniture usually has a solid construction and was handmade. The carpenters paid attention to stability and quality. Back then, only a few wedges or screws were needed to fix a piece of furniture in place.

The environmental aspect also plays an important role. Unlike new furniture, antique furniture already exists and is therefore considered a sustainable choice.

Antique furniture carries the character and history of bygone eras. Each piece tells a story and becomes a fascinating part of home decor and an exciting topic of conversation.

What does antique furniture look like in a modern home?

Antiques in modern homes often add a unique flair to the room. They can serve as a focal point that brings contrast and character to modern interiors. For example, an antique cabinet or dresser can provide an interesting break in style in an otherwise modern room. Combined with modern elements, they create an exciting contrast that enhances the room and gives it depth. Some people also specifically choose antique pieces to incorporate a touch of history and tradition into their modern living spaces. The key is often to find a balance between old and new to create a harmonious overall impression.
