3 Antique Must Haves for Eclectic Homes

3 Antique Must Haves for Eclectic Homes

Eclectic style is one of the things Augustus Brandt does best. Our rich collection of pieces represent multiple eras and movements and blend classic with contemporary, statement with subtle.

It can seem like a challenge to combine disparate styles, juxtaposing textures, and contrasting colours to create a cohesive, beautifully realised space. To help you get started we have chosen 3 must have antique pieces into your home which can add a bit of heritage and history into your home. 

1. Mirrors

Gilt mirrors can provide essential charm and warmth to a cool contemporary scheme. Try a large floor standing mirror in a bathroom or an add dimension to a small room with a mirror positioned to expand your space.


2. Chairs

Add bold contemporary fabrics to period chairs. We adore this combination of lively ‘orange luxury velvet’ on a classical frame with scrolling arms and carved feet, this sofa is new but based on a classic 18th Century design.

3. Accessories

For a quieter interior selecting just one main statement piece may be enough.  Too many strong pieces will compete with each other and will look overwhelming.

Keep things fresh by editing and moving accessories and collections at least once a year!

Rearranging collections and rehanging art works can totally transform a room. If hanging a collection of art works we suggest laying them out in advance on the floor and trying various compositions.
