How to Use Antique Furniture in Today's Modern Interiors

If you think about it, a piece of antique furniture is really a work of art - designed and hand crafted by skilled tradesmen using the best materials available to them at the time.

Treated as a work of art any antique piece will stand out and make a profound design statement in just about any interior. Think of a modern light filled, voluminous room accented with a rich mahogany chest with intricate carvings, marquetry  and inlay. It could easily become the focal point - the eye is instantly drawn towards the piece - wanting to more closely examine all of the intricacies of the piece.
