Classic Wood Designs Never Die

Classic wood-carved designs in antique furniture was made popular in the late 1700s, early 1800s, and began a Renaissance of American art in fine furniture. Centered mostly in the area from Pennsylvania through Ohio, this movement lasted roughly a century and produced some of the finest pieces of luxury furniture ever created.

There is another movement that is gaining wind right now, and it is a revival of the centuries old movement that originally created those lovely pieces; this movement is in antique reproduction furniture. These pieces of reproduction furniture emulate the styles of days passed, with their sturdy design, ornate carvings, and rich lacquers.

The fact that these pieces are reproductions only means that they were recently built. These pieces of furniture are strictly reproduced to the original specifications and are of the same high quality that the originals held.
