Antique Furniture Sale

It is nice to have antique items around your house, thier age reminds you of history and how things change so quickly. Often antique furniture is a prime example of how things can be made to last – you can purchase some pieces of antique furniture that are over 200 years old and still going strong. But not everyone can afford such fantastic furniture! At auction you can however find excellent examples of older furniture and fittings that are of durable excellent quality at a similar price to new but lesser quality furniture. Personally with furniture I think secondhand is great if its a good solid quality piece. You can find a whole range of different antique furniture styles in the so named section of collectables now – just click the antique chair!!!

Postcards

When you go on holiday do you find yourself sending postcards home?

Considered by many to be the ultimate in combination of design and graphical techniques, Art deco is a phrase which covers many areas of design.
