“Brown furniture” such as Georgian chests of drawers, dining tables and antique dressers have risen in popularity

After two decades of being shunned as old fashioned and stuffy, Georgian furniture is making such a comeback that it is believed to have lifted retail sales last month.
The Office for National Statistics said one reason for the 0.3 per cent rise was the strong growth in auction houses and antique dealers. Experts think that this is partly driven by the popularity of “brown furniture”, such as Georgian chests of drawers, dining tables and antique dressers.
