5 Questions to Ask a Reproduction Antique Retailer

If you’re new to reproduction antique furniture, it can be hard to decipher exactly what you want and need in your home. Although you’ll have a good idea of the product you’d like, deciding upon the perfect colour and style is crucial to determining the best choice for you. You also need to make sure that the source you’re buying the furniture from knows their stuff. Here at Kelvin Furniture, we manufacture and sell gorgeous reproduction antique furniture in Leeds, West Yorkshire, with options to deliver straight to your door.

We know how important purchasing the right piece of furniture can be. Therefore, we’ve created an article perfect for all reproduction furniture novices to follow. Read on below to find out exactly what you need to ask your furniture dealer. 

What Selection Do You Have?

It’s a common, well known rule that you should never accept the first offer or product that you see. For instance, if you make it clear that you’re looking for a stunning new dining table, most salespeople will show you the product that will benefit them more than you. Therefore, it’s important that you ask to see their entire range so you can settle on the best choice for you. The best way to ensure you’re getting a good deal is by browsing their website, should they have one. Their full catalogue should be available online for you to view at your leisure, giving you the opportunity to pick your favourite.

Whilst our Leeds store is temporarily closed, our website is still up and running, with our delivery service open for business. All of our vintage furniture is made and finished to the highest standard, and our vast selection gives you plenty of stunning options to choose from. Our display cabinets come in a range of different sizes, and our office chairs and desks aim to make working from home as comfortable and stylish as possible. 

What Wood Do You Use?

This may be a question that usually gets forgotten about, but if you want your furniture to be as gorgeously finished as possible, it’s worth asking. Antique reproduction furniture can be made from a range of woods, all of which have their own benefits. You can read our article concerning the different types of wood used in reproduction furniture here.

Here at Kelvin Furniture, we manufacture our pieces in mahogany and yew wood, which give all of our furniture a stunning, glossy finish. Here at our furniture shop in Leeds, we sell gorgeous reproduction dining tables and occasional furniture perfect for making a statement in any room. All of our pieces are incredibly durable and stain resistant due to the wood we use, and have been manufactured with the utmost care.

What Are Your Prices?

Antique furniture has a reputation for being incredibly expensive, so most people tend to avoid it at all costs. Antique reproduction furniture is much cheaper than its traditional counterpart, as it is made with newer materials and manufactured in a more modern fashion. When you approach a reproduction dealer, make it clear exactly what you’re looking for, and if you have a budget.

Retailers will respect the money you have available, and will seek out the best option for you that doesn’t break the bank. Try haggling if you wish for the price to be reduced further, but don’t push your luck. Antique reproduction furniture is timeless and classic, and with prices so much lower than the original options, they’re usually a bargain find. Here at Kelvin Furniture, we craft and sell traditional reproduction antique furniture in Leeds, delivering across the region to provide customers with exemplary service.

What Furniture Piece is Best for Me?

If you know you’d like some reproduction furniture in your home, but you aren’t sure exactly what piece you want, ask your retailer what they think would be the best fit. Describe your current decor, what you think is missing, and any other details you think might be relevant to your home and lifestyle when it comes to furniture. Retailers are the experts, and will be more than happy to help you out.

Our manufacturers here at Kelvin furniture have more than 30 years of experience in crafting antique reproduction furniture, so will be more than happy to find the perfect piece for you.

Do You Deliver?

During these unprecedented times we find ourselves in, more and more people are turning to online shopping to avoid crowds. Also, most retail places have closed down, meaning people can’t get their products in store at the moment. By asking a store straight away if they deliver, you’ll know where you stand from the beginning. If a store doesn’t deliver and you need them to, it’s best to look elsewhere.

Here at Kelvin Furniture, we sell reproduction antique furniture in Leeds both in store on and online. We can deliver your next furniture piece straight to your door, allowing you to enjoy and admire your new purchase as soon as possible.
