End Table. Thursday , December 21st , 2017 - 07:04:16 AM
Once many people learn about the charm and past that can be connected to antique end tables, they want one of their own. This makes sense. Who wouldnt want a conversation piece in their home that is from plantation life during the Civil war, or out of a castle in Europe. Not everyone has a budget to purchase large antique pieces. Tens of thousands of dollars for a large antique desk or armoire may not be a part of your budget, as thats a lot of money to be out for one piece of furniture. Antique end tables, on the other hand, are much more affordable options that still can have the same impact on your home. Once you know you want to have a few antique end tables in your home, you need to proceed carefully. Unfortunately, because of the popularity of antiques, thanks to the same TV show that made you like them, there are many people who are trying to pass off fake pieces as real antique end tables.
You need to make your antique end tables purchases from a reputable antique dealer. There are many antiques dealers associations across the country. Doing a Google search should help you find some of these associations, and find out whether the antique dealer you are considering is in good standing. Next, you should look for antique dealers that have specific skills in purchasing antique end tables. Antique dealers who specify in tables, will know best what they are looking for in tables as they make purchases. They will also know how to tell the difference between great fake antique end tables and the real things. This knowledge could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a fraudulent purchase. Another benefit of using a reputable antique dealer for your antique end tables purchases is that you wont have to settle for just what is in the shop. If your dealer knows what you are looking for, they can add it to the list of things they are searching for when they bring in new inventory. You will essentially have your own personal shopper who is looking for the perfect antique end tables to be added to your home.
Another thing to factor in is the visual weight. If you purchase metal and glass tables for example, they will not carry the same weight as a wood table. As such, you can go with something thats a bit larger or which makes a bigger statement. It will have the same impact on the room as a smaller wood table. If it has extensive use of glass, such as having top and bottom shelves that are glass, you can scale up even a bit more. However, if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one, you need to consider going with something a bit smaller, in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table.
