Joy Of Sourcing Genuine Antique Oak Furniture

Joy Of Sourcing Genuine Antique Oak Furniture

I have never really been one for looking too closely at how anyone has furnished their home.  Unless of course it’s in some ghastly clashing colourway, or the modern trend of black, greay, striped black and grey.  Or grey and black with a splash of even more garish red thrown in for good measure.  The stores seemed to be absolutely full of this awful selection for a couple of seasons.  My answer to this sad state of affairs was to step up my visiting of heritage properties – happily I live in an area abundant with history. These houses reflect that in the fabulously old and sweet smelling oak furniture of the day.  so many families managed to retain their much loved and handed down benches, trestles and chattles.  Joy abounds – we can all acquire old oak furniture for ourselves with a little carefull browsing.  To own something of great age has to be a real privilege.
