The Appeal of Old Charm Furniture

What Is The History Of Old Charm Furniture?


Old Charm furniture is rooted in a rich history. It was established in 1920 as a collection by furniture manufacturers, Wood Bros, inspired by the Tudor and Elizabethan era which is considered a golden age in furniture-making.


Following the resurgence of traditional craftsmanship and second-hand furniture during the early 20th Century, there was a demand for more classic, authentic pieces over mass-produced, store-bought furniture.


Over the years, Old Charm designs have evolved yet they continue to use traditional cabinetry techniques and incorporate elements from various historical periods. They are a beloved and timeless collection when it comes to vintage furniture.
