Antique home decor

Antique furniture has a timeless appeal. It’s treasured by generations of the same family because of its ability to lend any room a touch of elegance and class. Think of the opulence of the Regency period, the royal appeal of the Victorian era. Gothic and Rococo influences abound, and many of these pieces take inspiration from nature as well.

Antique decoration pieces


Our collection of antique decoration pieces includes items from the last five centuries. It’s a mashup of many different styles and influences. Begin with the sixteenth century. In the UK, the period was dominated by the English Renaissance, which borrowed styles from early modern Italian art. The seventeenth century is characterised by the Baroque movement, which was grand and sensuous. A hundred years later, during the Enlightenment period, artists moved into the Rococo style, which used curvy lines and pastel colours to depict scenes from classical myths. Antique furniture and decor brings you an eclectic mix to choose from.

Antique décor trends


Just because something’s aged, doesn’t mean it’s gone out of style. Antiques in general remain extremely popular, but just like everything else, items fall in and out of favour. Here are three evergreen pieces of antique décor that will never be a bad buy.

Chinoiserie furniture


Chinoiserie is a decorative style of Western art that takes inspiration from Eastern motifs and methods. It was particularly popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Our collection of antique home décor includes various home decor and furniture items handmade and painted in this style, including tables, mirrors, trays, and chairs.

Industrial style antique home decor


The industrial aesthetic remains popular because of its appeal to the current need to take old things and make them new. Distressed fixtures, especially, will add a modern, minimalist twist to your antique home décor. Browse wall and ceiling fixtures, as well as floor and desk lamps, in our collection of industrial lighting.

Antique mirrors


Antique mirrors are romantic, refined, and help you create a glamourous look. The mirrors in our antique home decor collection date from c.1680-1920. The earlier pieces are made from strong local woods like walnut, while the Victorians favoured mahogany for their mirrors.
