Availability is also guaranteed – sourcing original pieces in good condition can be a very time consuming process.

Whilst some people insist on the authenticity and history of original, the aged look or indeed pre-owned isn’t everyone’s cup of tea either. Many people like new items for their home to actually be new and look pristine.
