Even in the most modernist of houses and apartments with the latest decor, furnishings, appliances and HI Tech gadgets, there is always room for one or two quality well chosen period pieces. They can be an interesting talking point for your guests and friends, especially if they have, an interesting history, a funny story on how you came about them or been handed down and have a bit of sentimentality.

You can blend it all together with accessories, fabrics, paint colors and artwork. Keeping the scale and balance right is very important. Don’t be afraid to be bold and different, it makes it more interesting and personal.

Once you have found that special furniture piece you will need to care for it, weather it needs to be cleaned, repolished, repaired, reupholstered you’ll be able to find all you need by reading on.
