At the time of a renovation, or if you buy a new home or move into a new office, there is always a need for a breath of fresh air: it is satisfying to buy furnishing accessories in line with your taste, to give character to the environment and customize it.
Turning to those who deal with the sale of antiques online can be one of the possible choices, to characterize an apartment or a studio, thus combining class, elements of value and ease of choice. Whether the furnishing theme is modern or retro, an antique complement will always make an impression and if well inserted in the context it will only enhance the whole environment, as well as itself. Perhaps it is precisely for this reason that, together with the vintage boom, antiques are experiencing a new spring. So let’s see how to move to buy antiques online in comfort and safety. Do a search to find the right online antique dealers
First of all, it is good to do a search to find either the major online antique dealers and auction houses, or buying and selling forums. Currently, every good self-respecting antique dealer – that is a serious seller, probably on the market for decades, with considerable and proven experience in the sector – has moved his shop or showroom online, because he knows well the importance of online sales and why he only has to gain in exposing his valuable articles to the “whole world”. The showrooms can often be visited online, through virtual tours, to allow anyone from all over the world to admire the pieces on sale.Define your choice
Understanding and evaluating which antiques we are interested in, which we can afford and which go well with the decor of the environment is the next step to take to guide our path. We will choose among the reliable ones, the online antiques sellers who have in their collections the greatest variety of pieces we are interested in, those who have the greatest choice – for example – of consoles rather than antique floors or paintings. Evaluate the features
Once we have defined our interest in some elements, it is time to carefully consider the characteristics of the antique furnishing accessory we have chosen: assessing its quality, workmanship, colors, material, wear are all visual aspects or tactile that with a certain approximation and, however, can be evaluated online thanks to the high-definition photographs and virtual tours of the showrooms that return an exact image of reality. Already from the website it is possible to understand if there is consistency between the data of the piece – age, state of wear, place of construction, any restorations – and the current appearance.Finding information
Whether you have doubts or not, it is always good to find as much information as possible on the article we are interested in: that is to know if it is a rare piece or not, when and where it should have been made, the materials with which it is logical to have been built based on the location and at the time, these and other information are all necessary information before buying antiques online. All details can always be found on the internet in specialized forums and by asking in the community of enthusiasts and experts.Ponder the price
A further useful element to evaluate the goodness of the purchase we are about to make comes from the price, which must be consistent with the information found. A Chinese porcelain vase from centuries ago will not be able to have a derisory price, just to give a clear example: it is a very ancient tradition, of pieces of indisputable beauty as well as fragility, therefore not so widespread. Too low a price could be a wake-up call, especially if we turned to not so well-known retailers. This does not mean that even the best online antiques dealers offer discounts on some items, but they certainly don’t sell off valuable pieces. If you have any doubts, you still have time to request a guarantee certificate, i.e. a certificate made by experts about the originality of the element.Concluding the deal Once you
have chosen the dealer, you have found the suitable antique piece of furniture for our home or studio, evaluated its peculiarities, accepted the purchase price, all that remains is to conclude the transaction. It is often possible to define everything online, paying by card or bank transfer and agreeing with the antique dealer the methods of delivery or collection.
Buying an antiques online from reliable and expert dealers is a completely simple, convenient and quick procedure: what you need after the “hard work” of a renovation or the purchase of a property. Thanks to the professionalism of 60 years in the field and the quality of the products displayed in a showroom of more than 20,000 square meters, our advice for choosing the right online antique shop is
