Why Buy Antiques? January 29 2016
Greystone Fine Furnishings in Burlington offers exquisite antiques from the finest homes and estates throughout Ontario at amazing prices.
In this day and age we are all trying to do our part to ‘Go Green.’ Well at Greystone Fine Furniture we’ve discovered a great way to have fun doing it!
Did you know that antiquing is the ultimate in eco-friendly shopping?
Antiques are inherently recycled and reused and when you buy an old piece from us it’s possible it was constructed before our dependence on oil, which means you are extending an already impressive life cycle! Very few products can claim such longevity.
At Greystone Fine Furniture our products can speak for themselves! Antiques tell a story…they are relics of the past and carry the weight of bygone conversations, obsolete customs and a certain kind of etiquette. They are a reminder of the extravagances and hardships of another era.
Antique furniture is also often made by hand and very well made at that. If it has lasted this long it will likely withstand the daily grind of your modern life. Of course, antiques can break and they do carry their own set of rules for maintenance and cleaning. Our staff will be happy to explain to you the history and maintenance of your piece so you can make an educated decision before you buy!
One of the greatest things about purchasing antiques is that they are trend-proof. While antique pieces are less likely to be super trendy they are also less likely to ever be completely untrendy. If you buy a piece with beautiful lines, curves and construction it is unlikely to offend even the trendiest of trendies!
