Decorating with Antique Furniture          

 Doug Schmitt Antiques

       Decorating with antique furniture can provide in your home a timeless look that does not become dated as styles and trends change throughout time. The quality and craftsmanship of antique furniture far surpasses the quality that is available from the furniture sold in today's new furniture stores. Most furniture made today is constructed to last anywhere from 5 to 15 years at which time it will then have to be replaced. In fact, very little new furniture is even made in America today. Antique furniture has already withstood 100 plus years of use and if properly restored can last another 100 years. Shown below are some examples of homes that have been decorated with antique furniture, much of which had been purchased from Doug Schmitt Antiques.
