Comparing Reproduction Dining Furniture to Modern

When looking for new furniture for your home, it can be tempting to look towards big brand, mass-produced pieces. They’re easier to find, they’re usually flat-packed and easy to transport, plus there’s the common thought that they’re cheaper. But when it comes to traditional feel and classic stand-out pieces, you can never go wrong with antique reproduction furniture. When looking for dining chairs and a table, consider seeking out your local antique shop.

Here at Kelvin Furniture, we manufacture and sell stunning reproduction antique furniture in Leeds, delivering to homes across the UK. Whilst our furniture shop in Leeds remains temporarily closed, we are still delivering our mahogany and yew pieces to your home. Read our article below to compare reproduction dining tables and chairs with modern day pieces.


When it comes to durability, you want your dining set to be able to withstand hot objects, stains and scratches. Your dining table will withstand a lot of wear and tear over the years, so it’s important to make an informed decision. By choosing reproduction antique furniture, you can be assured that it is built to last. Unlike its antique counterpart, it isn’t hundreds of years old, so won’t be as susceptible to damage. However, the wood could be warped if extremely hot liquids are spilt, so it pays to be careful.

Modern furniture is definitely the more contemporary choice, but reproduction antique furniture adds elegance and class to any room, and can hold authority amongst the rest of your pieces. Here at our reproduction antique shop in Leeds, we stock a range of stunning dining tables and chairs, both expandable and set. You can view our range here.


If you’re looking for a more contemporaneous, luxurious feel and you know that it would look better with your existing furniture, modern furniture is the more tempting choice. But with reproduction furniture, it can look good amongst any existing pieces, and has a classic, timeless appearance. Your dining chairs and table set is bound to be the centre of attention amongst guests, and having a large reproduction piece means that you don’t have to look for other pieces to add to it.

The only downside to reproduction antique furniture is that it isn’t as widely available as modern furniture. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it is hard to find, just that mass-produced furniture has a way of being found easily. Because it is harder to find, it makes reproduction furniture that more special, with its unique factors giving it an advantage in the beauty department.

It’s common to find you have the same furniture piece as someone you know, so opting for reproduction furniture avoids this, and gives your furniture that unique factor. When it comes to reproduction dining chairs and table sets, your guests will spend most of their time in your living room or dining room, so having a stunning new piece to show off goes a long way.
