Singapore , Jodhpur, Rajsthan,

Decorating your home or office with Indian antique furniture in Singapore is sure to attract attention. A quality vintage cabinet or antique that suits your needs may not be the only answer though. Do not be disheartened and settle for an ordinary look if these options are not available, however. Instead, put your imagination to use and look for distressed furniture that also can give you a unique effect.

The term ‘distressed furniture’ may seem unfamiliar at first, but distressing refers to a procedure whereby an item of furniture is deliberately weathered to make it appear old, dating back to the last century or even further. Some of the pieces can tend to look a bit shabby but that is part of their unique appeal and this kind of furniture is actually now in high demand.

While you can achieve the perfect look by placing an order with the best furniture maker in the town, it is best to buy the distressed items directly from a reputed online store so you can see the finished item. You may be surprised to find cabinets; sideboard as well as tables can look great in a distressed finish.

Experts in making distressed items have historical knowledge of the types of furniture that were  in vogue during specific eras so achieve the look perfectly by employing different tools and techniques. The trick to this style is to add some imperfections as there were no machines employed earlier with each piece of furniture being crafted painstakingly by hand.

This kind of furniture can also include more specific styles like shabby chic furniture where the finished product may not only be looking weathered but also have some paint scraped off to expose the bare material underneath. However, you may also achieve much of the same effect by making furniture out of hewn logs or repurposed barn wood so that you obtain reclaimed timber furniture at astonishingly affordable prices.

If you are looking to get vintage style furniture with a touch of class, you should definitely opt for French provincial furniture as it can be the perfect choice for your home. These furniture items can literally teleport your home to the bygone era and make it a wonderful place for you to live. The good thing is that there are now many well-known shops from where you can actually collect French provincial furniture in a number of different forms. Whether you are looking for a dining table, console table or sofas, you can have a wide range of great items to choose from that evoke this classy and elegant style.
