When shopping for antique furniture, you can spend hours, days even weeks looking at items. Looking for that perfect bargain, that hidden treasure that everyone seems to have forgotten about but you.When you finally find what you’re looking for, it may not be up to your expectations. This isn’t to say that all antique furniture is disappointing; there are some amazing pieces out there.

The most expensive antique bed was sold in 2007 for $66 Million Dollars! Sold in the East Fujian province of China, the antique bed was constructed from a 1,000 year old Agalwood tree grown in Indonesia.

 There are easier ways to get exactly what you want without spending millions, and we will show you how easy it is to furnish your bedroom with Antique styled furniture. Antiqued bedroom furniture is available in a wide array of styles:

  • Centennial
  • Chippendale
  • Depression- Era
  • Eastlake
  • Hepplewhite
  • Queen Ann
  • Shaker
  • Sheraton

Even though Queen Ann herself has no direct link to the style personally, at the time Queen Anne architecture style became popular in the late 19th century. Her name connotes a sense of Old World elegance, ornate detailing and extravagance.

Beds

Since the bedroom is the most personal room in the house, it's important to feel comfortable and pleased with the décor. When choosing your bedroom furniture, the first piece should be the bed. The bed serves as the focal point for your bedroom. With decorative leaf and scroll pilasters and acanthus motif headboard, the Pulaski Royale Poster Bed is inspired by European Neo-Classical Architecture.

Top Three Types of Antiqued Beds

  1. Canopy Beds
  2. Estate Beds
  3. Sleigh Beds

The bed serves as the throne in your bedroom and should reflect as such. Antiqued styled beds will add a sense of warmth and grace to your bedroom. Canopy beds are also a great way to establish a sense of class and have been a favorite in bedrooms for centuries.

Four of the crucial pieces needed for completing your bedroom:

  • Nightstand
  • Dresser
  • Chest
  • Armoire

Each piece stands out as an individual unit but together flow together seamlessly. Since your antiqued furniture also serves as artistic focal points, decorating around your furniture shouldn’t be too complicated. A large area rug with a muted or plain design can help accentuate the collection’s appearance.

When decorating your bedroom with antique styled furniture, two nightstands with matching decorative elements complete the look. Antique styled dressers with mirrors are highly decorative and help anchor the bedrooms décor. Most antiqued bedroom furniture will feature brushed bronze or brass hardware. Certain pieces feature jeweled hardware while others have bail shaped handles.

The advantage of purchasing new furniture with an old world style is that you get the best of both worlds. Decorative elements accent your bedroom while providing an atmosphere of grace and style. New, “old” furniture from companies such as Pulaski and American Drew, offer sturdy and stylish options. Plus you can have the entire bedroom collection shipped to your door.
