Find Some Great Antique Chairs For Your Home

By Richard Bentley

Oak antiques and Antique chairs are popular collectors items right now. Furniture in particular and chairs particularly happen to be at the mercy of the craftsmen, just the same because they are at fantasy of the connoisseur. In the centuries, wood has changed a lot of its utilities and today mainly rests in our rooms. From building ships, to houses, to carts; now they remain as our accompaniments or in our type of living.

Today with the use of wood being denounced by environmentalists, what we are left with is archaic, or more properly called, Antique furniture. Since we use less wood, different styles of furniture are appearing with different types of materials. Materials such as metals. Although metals are very common now, wooden furniture is still very popular. In furniture the most common woods are mahogany, oak, pine, walnut and rosewood.

Not all old is gold, but wooden antiques definitely are. Oak particularly has been used since past 4 centuries in ship-building for its endurance, elegance, and for the “golden glow”. It is one of the most prized and expensive woods available.

Lately, many people have started liking more heavy oak furniture to stylize their homes. Because it ages, and with proper finishing and maintenance, the oaken furniture gathers a majestic look and shine. Thus, it gains an old-fashioned value. (Though antiques have been regarded only for things which were made earlier than 1940.)

Each wood is worth different values, a good example would be burl, rosewood, mahogany, and walnut are all known as more valuable woods compared to spruce, maple and elm. Besides the wood type, the price of a piece also depends upon the stories or even the incidents it pertains to. The price is going to be much more if the antique chairs have some association with some historic event. So, it solely is determined by you to decide what to buy which fulfills your requirements and corresponds your budget too.

Most people would not be able to tell the difference between all the different types of woods available on the market now, unless they were special discerning buyers. There are plenty of fake copies of antique chairs in the market that sell for 5-100 times their worth. It will always be safer to buy from an antiques dealer of repute. Check the credentials or lineage with the antique chairs. You can even examine these items online or by simply asking the antique dealer information concerning his items. Doing this you will definitely have the ability to discern what is real antique and what is modern trick.

So, buying antique chairs for your living room requires a little bit of research to be done, and then comparing the pluses and minuses of the pieces that you have seen, along with their prices and values.
