Tips on determining whether your furniture is antique

Antique furniture generally uses one of two fillings:


Horsehair is a very traditional antique filling. The furniture will have a very solid, almost hard look and feel. If you squeeze the arm or back of the chair you should hear a gentle crunching noise.


Coir is the coarse fibre from the outer shell of a coconut and was often used in the manufacture of antique furniture. As with horsehair, a gentle crunching sound should be heard when squeezing the arms or back of the furniture.

Antique furniture was often manufactured with coil springs in the seat and sometimes in the arms and back.

Whatever the flavour of your furniture - antique or faux antique - Claridges has the expertise to sympathetically complete your reupholstery renovation project.
