The right piece can be the star of the room, creating a style that is unique to your home and reflecting your taste. However, don’t be fooled by just any furniture store claiming to sell vintage items! The experts at Carrocel offer useful tips to help you discern genuine antiques from the fake ones.

Shopping at Antique Stores? Keep these Tips in Mind

  • Find a reliable source: The key to buying authentic antique furniture is to have a trustworthy source. As a high-end furniture store, Carrocel offers a range of genuine antiques from all over the world. Estate sales and auctions are another source of vintage furniture provided you have a good eye for quality and know what to look for.
  • Visit your antique furniture source frequently: It might take more than one visit to find a piece that will suit your style. Once we know what you want, our store staff at Carrocel will be happy to look out for items that might interest you. We are constantly refreshing our inventory as new shipments arrive. There is always something new and exciting to discover.
  • Inspect the quality: Solid wood is always a preference. Tap the piece to check. A hollow sound points to inferior quality. Also inspect construction and finish. Look underneath, at the back and around the sides. Open the drawers of a chest or sideboard to ensure they are working and will not fall apart on you. Make sure the doors of a bookcase or display cabinet open smoothly. Here is where a reliable furniture store can make all the difference.

  • Ask about restoration service: Don’t worry about scratches; they can be fixed. It also helps if your antique store has a restoration service as your pieces can be restored to their original beauty without the fear of damaging them. Our team at Carrocel is experienced and knowledgeable about restoration of antique furniture.
  • Look for something different: Antique furniture with unique shapes and designs can become the focal point of your room. Strike a balance between aesthetics and functionality.

With the right care, good quality antique furniture will last for years. It can even offer you a good resale value.

    I have a large mahogany china cabinet that I believe may be a Carrocel and I was wondering if you might be able to Identify it. I believe it to be from maybe the 40sish. I have pictures. I can not find any writing on it except drawer numbers that say RR1, RR2, RR3, RR4 for the four center drawers. Please let me know if you have a historical department that might be able to help me.

I’m wondering if it has any type of Value Plus I have many other items that could be classified as antique furniture that I just want to know if they are because most of them are from the 30s 40s and 50s if not all pieces I was wondering if someone could help me with the process at least a little bit and tell me if any of them are worth something thank you

      Hello Brittney, thank you for your comment. We do not offer furniture researching or appraisals. You would be best contacting furniture auctions to see if they offer these types of services. Best of luck with your research!
