Choosing Antique Reproduction Furniture Over Modern

When it comes to buying furniture for your home, most people opt for more modern pieces. They’re easier to come by, they’re usually less expensive, and they’re quick and easy. If you’re on the lookout for a new dining table and chairs as soon as possible, you’re likely to find one and purchase on the same day. Modern furniture is usually the answer in the sense of practicality, but what about other factors?

When compared to antique reproduction furniture, modern pieces don’t provide that unique, traditional feel, and are mass-produced, which in turn damages the environment. Buying antique reproduction furniture is a perfect way to introduce tradition and elegance into your home, and your piece will be the centre of attention amongst all your guests.

Here at Kelvin Furniture, we manufacture and sell gorgeous antique reproduction pieces, both in-store and online. Perfect for spaces such as living rooms and dining rooms, our pieces come in both mahogany and yew finishes, coated with a high gloss finish. Antique reproduction furniture has plenty of advantages over modern furniture, but if you’re still making your mind up, allow our article to help your decision along.


If you’re looking for furniture that will stand out from the crowd, and you want it’s featured asset to be its elegance and appearance, then look no further than antique reproduction furniture. Its regal, one-of-a-kind appearance makes it the perfect choice for showing off to guests. For instance, dining table sets, along with dining chairs, are not just bought based on their function and sturdiness. You want a dining table and chairs to look the part.

Antique reproduction pieces such as display cabinets are also perfect choices, as their sole purpose is to display. A glass display cabinet that stands proudly and elegantly is sure to be a hit with guests, and the range of colours and sizes available mean it’s bound to fit in with your existing decor. Modern choices usually look stylish, but lack that traditional flair that some homes crave.

Here at Kelvin Furniture, we manufacture a gorgeous range of reproduction and occasional furniture perfect for any spaces. Our range of sizes and products, from dining sets to display cabinets, come in both mahogany and yew and can even be delivered to your home at a time suitable for you.


Although reproduction pieces aren’t genuine antiques, they still have history and look just as good as the original pieces, if not better. Modern furniture is usually mass-produced and has no originality to it, so don’t be surprised if a friend or relative ends up with the same piece as you.  Antique reproduction furniture takes its style from genuine antiques, and is furnished to be more durable, attractive and cheaper to purchase.

When you pay for modern, you pay for the new style and manufacturing, which is a great choice if the rest of your furniture has that new feel. However, reproduction furniture is a more unique choice for your home, as it isn’t as widely mass-produced as more modern choices. You’ll be much less likely to see your brand new dining table and chairs set in someone else’s home.

Here at Kelvin Furniture, we have a stunning selection of antique reproduction pieces available in-store and online. With a range of sizes and colours to choose from, our pieces are perfect for any room and home.


Unlike their antique counterparts, reproduction furniture is much more sturdy and durable. Genuine antiques are incredibly old, making them unstable and faded. Reproduced antique furniture is constructed with sturdier wood and advanced technology, which allows the pieces to be more reliable. Not only are they better for the long term, but they are much cheaper than genuine antiques, making them the perfect choice.

Modern furniture also has the benefit of being much sturdier, however, this can all be down to how it’s assembled. Most modern-day furniture is flat-packed and needs to be assembled at home. Although you have instructions, it can be hard and frustrating to assemble the piece yourself. Here at Kelvin Furniture, all of our antique reproduction pieces are ready-made for collection or delivery, so you don’t need to worry about assembling it once you get home.Reproduction furniture looks stunning in any home, and its unique factor and traditional feel make them a much more optimal choice over modern-day pieces.
