If there was a choice one would most definitely choose intricately carved furniture over the traditional plain-looking one — providing that one’s pocket can afford it. Naturally, it is more expensive than regular furniture due to the hard work involved in the carving but despite the premium, more and more people are buying carved, antique-looking furniture for their homes.
The artisans of Chiniot, an ancient city of the subcontinent, are known for their expertise in making carved furniture. The wooden furniture is decorated with carving, embossing, wooden inlay and painting, etc. Avoid placing antique wooden furniture in direct sunlight and other mediums of heat, which could loosen glued joints, veneers, inlays and marquetry. So, keep your furniture away from heating and air-conditioning vents, radiators or stoves. Use a humidifier or dehumidifier to maintain humidity levels and minimise effects of moisture on the pieces.
