At Antique Furniture Direct we sell a range of interesting antique hall furniture such as antique hall stands, stick stands, jardinieres (plant stands) and Georgian wash stands. We also regularly have hall cupboards as well as hall tables and antique hall chairs for sale.
The hall is often the first place a visitor to a household sees and historically the place where a visitor would wait for the master of the house. Furniture for this room is usually functional and slim-line with items such as hall chairs, coat stands, stick stands and hall bureaus being a popular feature. Antique hall chairs are typically void of upholstery as often visitors with muddy or wet clothes would occupy them. The solid seats of this type of chair often display the scars and marks of constant heavy use as they were often used for tying boot laces or as temporary resting places for heavy objects. Settles and hall benches are particularly useful items for the hall as well as trunks and coffers which afford seating combined with storage.
