About Us

Family Ties

Modern Antiques is a proud family operated business. Established in 1996 as a small concern, we have grown from strength to strength and we have recently opened another branch. Our success can only be attributed to God inspired values and ethics that we carry through all our lines of business.

Our main purpose in the business, and you will experience this in all our retail outlets, is to provide a honest and fair service with high end products that build and establish long term relationships with traders and clients alike. Besides the family most of our team have been with us for many years, resulting in professionalism and expertise in their service offering.

We are continually striving to increase our knowledge of industry trends and regularly attend fabric launches, trade shows and attempt at least one international buying trip annually.

Our service lines include, restorations, upholstery, paint techniques including metallic finishes and staining techniques, buying and selling of original antiques and reproductions as well as exhibitions and hiring to film and TV industries.

Our family business has experienced great favour and blessing and we aim to continue sowing into the lives of our teams and others.

What makes us Special

Our exclusive antique reproduction imported range that has been selected from professional suppliers is made mainly from Honduras Mahogany, Teak and Mindy wood.

From experience we have learnt that the above medium density wood is most ideal for carving and hand finishing. The density and colouring will intensify and become richer with age.

All wood needs to breathe and acclimatise when transported and moved. Our process includes drying both before shipping and again on arrival in South Africa. We also highly recommend continuing to oil and nurture the finished products, which assists in the longevity of the product.

Most of our exclusive items are hand made by craftsmen and women who have been taught this trade for many centuries. This also means that no item will be exactly the same and that small variances and slight imperfections will form part of the character and authenticity.

We only used the best quality finishing agents to enhance and compliment our products, and our teams are well informed and trained in these processes. We also offer upholstery, restoration, consultation as well as buying and selling services.

Our antique reproductions are made and finished to the highest standards. They continue to increase in status and worth and result in complimenting the areas you have decided to decorate. The value of these exclusive reproduction antiques will continue to increase as original pieces become more rare, expensive and unavailable. This is the perfect alternative.
