Why choose antique bookcases?

Many people strive to have at least one or two pieces of antique furniture for their space. Given the unique nature of antiques, they are the perfect way to create the unique home we strive for when choosing our décor. And a great way to instantly add a little bit of heritage class is through an antique bookcase – accompanied by some classic works of literature, of course.

Antique bookcases can be fancy and elegant but also very simple and aesthetically pleasing. When you consider buying a bookcase, there are a couple of questions you will need to ask yourself. For instance, what style are you going for? Do you require any kind of specific functionality or just a piece of decorative furniture? And key to everything, what other types of furniture do you have in the room? Having these kinds of questions in mind can help you set the tone for the search you will conduct when looking for your ideal bookcase.

Having an idea of what is in style at the moment will get you moving in the right direction. Do you want a gorgeous Victorian oak bookcase that will make a statement in your living room, or perhaps a Georgian mahogany bookcase and bureau for the study.

A common mistake people make is to feel they need to have one style of furniture throughout their space. While it is undeniably true that furniture needs to blend in and work with each other in a space, it does not have to be the same type of style or even colour. Finding different pieces of furniture, from different eras and with unique patterns that go well together is the perfect way to create texture and character in a room without a uniform feel.

With the right guidance and strong sense of personal style, choosing furniture to match your décor theme should, in theory, be straightforward. However, with so much choice in the antique and retro market, choosing the right piece can be a challenge in itself.
