Why Should You Buy Mid-Century Furniture?
Furniture styles that were popular during the mid-century, essentially around 1950s and 1960s are still preferred by homeowners today, and this fact should not come as a surprise to anyone. The designs ranging from funky & curvaceous to elegant & sleek have been embraced as a part of indoor landscape within homes in Berkshire and various other places in UK. Given below are some reasons that have been provided by furniture makers in Berkshire as to why you should be investing in Mid-century options:
Enduring Appeal
At present, there are a limited number of mid-century pieces available in the market of UK. In other words, they are becoming rarer, which can ensure that the appeal of the ones you purchase would last for a long time. However, most experts advise buying original pieces instead of duplicates and knock-offs in order to make sure that your investment is worthwhile.
Highly Appreciated
Nowadays, people are opting for mid-century furniture like they would buy an antique or old artwork. They greatly appreciate the unique designs, characteristic features and historical value of these pieces. While making your purchase though, you will need to exercise some serious caution. Be wary of dealers who try to sell off cheap duplicates by tagging them as ‘authentic’.
Versatile
Mid-century furniture are versatile in the sense that they can work well with nearly any interior decor style. This mean that they will look incredibly good even if you have a 19th century-styled apartment with mouldings and mantels. Again, howbeit, you will have to verify the authenticity of your purchase if you wish to increase the aesthetic appeal of your home’s interiors.
Long-Lasting
Mid-century furniture was generally built using simple materials such as teak. Some of them had their frames constructed out of wood such a teak. They feature traditional joinery made with machines. Their appearance can also be enhanced with the help of meticulous conservation techniques. But again, you must be careful about whom you hire for performing the restoration work. A bad professional can do irreversible damage on the piece or strip off its coating, which can reduce the worth of your furniture to half its original value.
Mid-century furniture pieces are totally worth their price tags, but you will have to make sure that you are buying the right piece. One thing you can do is read and collect information about them as much as you can. Consulting with putative dealers will also help.
