The elegance of solid wood furniture has not been forgotten amongst home lovers. The durability of solid wood and reproduction furniture is what attracts people as well as the unique look and style it can give your home. Both solid wood and reproduction furniture can have a timeless, classical look but they can still fit in with modern homes.
Solid Wood Classical Furniture
Solid woods such as oak, yew and mahogany are durable and have a classic style which has become more popular in recent years. Classical looks usually have intricate detail and stand out fabric patterns. When teamed with simple decor, classic solid wood pieces can create a feeling of grandeur and expense in your home which will draw the eye and invite compliments. There are also styles which are made from the solid woods used in the past, but have a modern look to them.

Therefore, your reproduction furniture can have the same look as the original antique version, but you are free to choose from a wealth of colours, types of wood and styles of fabric which will fit in with the design of your modern home.
