The modern home is simple and uncluttered, but still has room for some quality pieces of reproduction furniture. Mingling with digital appliances and stark contemporary lines, they add balance and an eclectic look. They are a perfect foil for collections of small antiques which can be rotated for display on open shelving or tucked away in drawers and cupboards. In older houses with larger room dimensions, reproduction furniture is often mixed with antiques with a seamless effect.
A spokesman for Furniture Warehouse (http://www.furniturewarehouseuk.com), Essex based quality solid wood furniture specialists, has this to say: “For authenticity, reproduction furniture should be made, or veneer covered, in the types of wood most often used the period in which their style was popular.”
They advise that while yew furniture has been used through the years to earliest times, walnut furniture was a style imported to England from the continent after Charles II was restored to the throne in 1660. Mahogany furniture was not made here until it began to be imported from Cuba and South America in the early 1700s.
The reproduction furniture of Furniture Warehouse is made to order and to fit in with the contemporary styling of its customers’ homes. Rather than following the elaborate baroque style of the Restoration period, its leather top desks are in the more restrained and elegant Regency style. Available in both yew and mahogany, as well as with a walnut finish, these pieces of classic reproduction furniture will grace any study or home office. From the yew furniture collection, a magnificent breakfront display cabinet will draw the eye in a dining room, lounge or hall. Furniture warehouse delivers fully assembled pieces countrywide.
