About Second Hand Furniture
Interior design is all about personal taste and choice. Often the key feature of any room is the furniture selected to fill it. However, furniture also has to be functional. You cannot fill a room with furniture that looks great but can't be used, but the problem with a lot of modern day, new furniture is that it all looks the same. You don't get a sense of individuality or design creation and the sense of style has often been lost in the pursuit of function over form.
Second hand furniture offers something different. It opens up a world of possibilities from classic, antique design through to art deco or period pieces. You are more inclined to alter or update second hand furniture to make it fit your personal style and taste, and in many cases it is a much more cost effective solution than buying new.
Second hand furniture is also a great way to recycle products, giving them a second life while giving you a truly individual and personalised home. You have a much wider selection available to you compared with buying new in flat pack form, or from a retailer that can only offer a limited range of designs. It can be great fun updating a second hand piece of furniture to fit your own personal style, and you will get a fantastic feeling of satisfaction when you find the key piece that finishes your room perfectly.
