Classic furniture

Our range of furniture includes first-rate classic period furniture by a variety of manufacturers. Most of them have more than 100 years’ experience and a long-standing tradition.

 

French furniture

French furniture are mostly made of solid cherrywood and is often given an antique finish. Upon client request, these pieces of furniture can bepainted or lacquered. This process creates unmistakable originals, since all furniture is created on an on-demand basis.

 

English furniture

Furniture from England is predominantly made from mahogany or yew. Oftentimes, these pieces of furniture are veneered because in Britain, the veneered appearance is a must, e.g. the flamed part of the tree in the case of mahogany. Adding a veneer to a piece of furniture is anything but a sign of low quality. Top-of-the-line antiques as well as contemporary furniture come with a veneer. The decisive factor for the value of a piece of furniture is the material underneath the veneer. All the furniture in our store is made of boards of solid wood.
