Lookbook

Getting the right look to your home can sometimes seem like a daunting task, and it’s often tricky to know where to start. We’re here to help and offer inspiration on how to pull together a great room that works well, and looks great. We know that the most successful interiors are those that aren’t defined by one particular look, but gather inspiration from a range of styles. Antiques are a great way to achieve this, helping you express your individuality and are always a fantastic starting point for designing any interior.

When considering adding antique pieces into a design, it’s important to think about both form and function. All of our pieces are appraised and restored by our master carpenter, so you can be sure that not only do they look great, but they’re ready for use too!

We love the juxtaposition of the dark mahogany antique chest, doubling up as a sideboard and the antique tripod table against the neutral backdrop of this living room. They also perfectly compliment the pop of rich pink tones in the upholstery. Featured on House & Garden's 'The List', Georgie Wykeham Designs

Mixing old and old is also an impactful style, beautifully demonstrated in this kitchen, where harlequin (aka mix and match) antique chairs have been used to create personality and character in the room.

Create the look

At Penderyn Antiques, our passion for interior design extends across a broad and varied range of styles. From rustic farmhouse to traditional antique, we source pieces to suit many styles. Take a look below to learn more about some of our signature styles and get inspired to create these looks in your home.

Rustic Farmhouse

Rustic farmhouse interiors place an emphasis on the natural elements of the furniture used, joints are typically exposed and the grain and natural finish of the wood is a key feature. These interiors draw on times when furniture was by necessity much simpler, and celebrates the quality of the craftsmanship. 

There is a wide variety of rustic farmhouse furniture from dressers and settles to farmhouse chairs and tables. Reclaimed wood is also very popular in rustic interiors, giving new life to this natural material. Paired with a neutral colour palette, the fusion of past and present is the ideal backdrop to any room.

Carved & Gothic

For many centuries furniture has been made incorporating carved detail. Carved furniture has patterns cut into the wood to create decorative panels, columns, aprons, and legs. There are many different types of carving found on antique furniture and these styles can sometimes be used to help identify a period or even a particular maker.

There is a wide range of pieces available from carved oak coffers to decorative carved chairs that provide grandeur and gothic flair. The use of dark woods such as mahogany or even ebonized woods adds to the gothic aesthetic and carved pieces are often available in these darker materials which are very impactful within interiors.

Traditional Home

Traditional interior style takes you on a walk down memory lane. Whether you store your prized possessions in a Victorian chest or display your china in an Edwardian cabinet, traditional elements create a classic and warm environment that is rooted in the past without specifying any single time period.

Traditional pieces tend to incorporate darker woods such as walnut and mahogany alongside neutral colour palettes. Incorporating quality pieces which have stood the test of time highlight harmony and order within a space. Popular styles include wingback chairs (a type of chair with a high back, wooden legs and winged sides), chest of drawers and Queen Anne chairs (a curved armchair with cabriole legs).
