Antique Reproduction Furniture

Regardless if it’s a table, chair, chest, cabinet or a sofa, there is a huge market demand for antique reproductions. All you have to do is go online and you will find numerous vendors offering these types of products.

If you are in the market for such items, it’s always best to be educated on what is valuable so you can make the best possible decision on your purchase. Many consider these types of purchases investments as some items can have a high resale value this is due to the high market demand.

There are usually two ways to define and properly categorize antique reproduction furniture. The first is duplicating the exact design of the piece using the same materials and trying to use the same techniques used to create the original. This type of reproduction is usually very costly, due to the fact that some woods or metals used are just naturally harder to find nowadays. It also difficult to find someone who is properly trained in the techniques used to create these antique pieces of furniture.

The Second type is where only the design is copied from the original, the materials and techniques used to create them are both modern. This is obviously the most cost effective method as both the materials and the labor used are both commonly found. Usually the materials are stressed to give the articles a more vintage look, this process is mostly done on surfaces such as glass, wood and metal.
