I love antique furniture. But, I don't want a room that's full of it. I think a great mix of modern and antique furniture is really great. Try using antique pieces to add your unique personality to your room. For example, I have a modern cow skin rug and modern curtains and I mix it with an antique dresser and coffee table. My antique pieces add depth to my home. You can find some really great pieces in the garages of your family members' homes, or you can find them at thrift shops and refinish them.
