About Antiques : About Antique Chair Types

There’s many types of antique chairs out there,
but if you’re looking for that special one, I’m Blake Kennedy at Patty and Friends Antique
Mall in St. Petersburg, Florida. Antique chairs, depending on what you’re looking for, whether
it’s an upholstered chair, a dining room chair, make sure you, make sure that you know exactly
what type of chair you want and what exactly you’re going to be using it for. Are you going
to be using antique chairs around the dining room table to to bring the whole family around
for the holidays? Or are you looking for just a nice antique chair to put inside the family
room? So, you want to ask around to make sure the dining room chairs are going to be well
built, well sturdy ’cause an antique chair, it’s been around for a long time. You want
to see if it’s been reconditioned, and it’s okay if it’s been reconditioned especially
if you’re going to be using that chair quite a bit, if it’s giving you that look. If you’re
looking for a nice chair to put inside the living room, look and see if it’s been reupholstered.
It’s okay to change the upholstery on a good antique chair. You’re not going to devalue
the antique by having it reupholstered. You’re gonna, you’re making it to where it suits
your taste. It makes your home look lived in but you want to make sure if you want to
get the springs redone and then see what kind of cushion’s been made out of. But before
you go out shopping for those antique chairs, you know, hit all the antique shops and thee
antique malls and make sure it’s good to buy ’em in pairs. Make sure that you’re really
buying what you want. Don’t be afraid of ugly fabric, or ugly upholstery if that’s the look
that you’re looking for because it’s worth every penny to have that antique chair reupholstered.
Happy hunting on those chairs. I’m Blake Kennedy.

  1. Hi Blake, I found a chair someone was discarding made by Schulz & Behrle. (Ironically I work with his nephew) Unfortunately his nephew has no insight as to what the chairs are worth. They are high back chairs. the woodwork is in excellent condition. My question is, is it worth it to have the chairs re-upholstered and what are they worth…any idea? Thanks, John [email protected]
