FURNITURE MARKET PREDICTIONS FOR 2019
The market has seen very little change to the increase in price for furniture due to the fact that they no longer function as usable to the home. Their investment value has remained low because many pieces have to look correct with other furniture in the home of the potential buyer. If trends continue to favor modern contemporary design, then sales will continue to fall short of their true value in the marketplace. There are however signs that a turn around is inevitable, due to cost of rising materials to build new furniture, and the desire to stop the destruction of the forests or green theory. The market is also signifying an interest in low cost reproductions of original Victorian and earlier pieces adding further interest to original furniture of the period as well as good quality revival pieces with age. There is the perfect storm building,one could say, for a great time to buy, as interest rates rise, and there is more wealth in Countries of power. The future always repeats itself, and furniture has been suppressed to the point it can no longer continue a decline. As the working class begin to notice the shift to obtain desirable antiques that compliment their homes, they will drive prices to new levels that we have never before seen, and this will cause the new boom in collecting. All the junk furniture as I would call it, made from pressed wood, and carries a household life of perhaps three, to four years if lucky, will never, ever, in the future, be looked at as something any culture would rightly be proud of producing. Its cheap, looks cheap, and if you look close enough, it looks even cheaper. There is a new wave of designers contributing to the introduction of artfully using antique furniture in a way that compliments the space, and is functional to the user. Television and magazines continue to show how anyone with an idea can turn their home into a luxurious home. So not only invest in your furniture, but invest in saving what some highly skilled craftsman put many hard earned hours into, and used the exotic wood and materials to create a work of art. This will also help save the planet by the reuse of products.
