Architectural Antiques and Decorations From Fireside Antiques
Fireside Antiques’ collection of decorative items and furniture pieces are great for adding that unique touch to any space. More than any modern item you’ll find today, architectural antiques have the potential to make your design stand out in a classy and understated way.
Perhaps it’s the history behind architectural antiques, but the amount of ambiance and weight they bring to a room is palpable. Not only that, but you’ll feel great pride in owning each item that today’s modern finishes simply can’t replicate.
After all, rustic and antique furnishings are very much “en vogue” in today’s interior design scene. If the piece has a history behind it to act as a talking point, then that’s all the better.
In our shop, we carry all sorts of architectural antiques and decorative items. Anything that’s in decent shape (enough to be restored, then loved by a new owner) can fall into this category, especially if it’s a decorative or miscellaneous item that doesn’t fit with other categories.
While different antiques come through our doors all the time, we specialize in things like pedestals, ladders and steps, iron gates, door and stairwell ornaments, panels, urns, and much more. Many of our stone and metal pieces are also just as well at home in your garden or patio as they are in your home.
Choosing the Right Architectural Antiques
Not every architectural antique is meant to fit with every space. After all, while a stone finial or iron gate will look beautiful outdoors in your garden, a library ladder or staircase—with its near-priceless aged wood—would succumb to the elements outside and lose much of its innate beauty.
In the same way, while a large, wrought-iron gate would surely look beautiful in your library, that doesn’t always seem like the most logical place to put it. An iron gate works best outdoors, attached to an iron fence, just as originally intended.
Of course, if you aim to preserve your beloved antiques and put them on display, situating them outdoors may not match your goals in the first place. The point is that architectural antiques vary widely in form and function, so it’s important to evaluate the decoration’s place and purpose before adding it to your home.
At Fireside Antiques, you’ll find only the best architectural antiques to incorporate into your designs, whether you’re renovating a home or simply purchasing an antique for your own enjoyment. All of these items have found a second purpose as statement pieces, conversation starters, and simple, pleasing decor.
