Antiques are not only about ornate and classic looking items that will suit a traditional theme or older items that seem out of place in a modern contemporary home. There are actually many antique options that really do fit in anywhere with a very relaxed vibe, such as French country furniture. These are available in lighter shades and are simple yet elegant.
Some associate antiques with furniture that is too ornate in a modern space. But country furniture is nothing close to that and has a simple look. Check out this beautiful Trestle table for instance at Arcadia Antiques. This unusually long and narrow 19th Century French scrubbed oak trestle table is a unique shape and size and can be put to versatile use in the home.
This antique table would make a great fit in your kitchen to hold your food before serving or placed along a wall in a hall or a dining room. You could use it as a sideboard or as a dining table. In an orangery, or against a window to show off your decorative treasures. The possibilities with this one are endless, and what's more the simple, attractive style means that this antique really will fit into any theme, old, new, classic or contemporary.
