Furniture For A Gilded Age: Ebonized Look Revived for 2016 Collection

Castle Antiques announces the launch of the Black & Gold Collection. This collection is the first of the many new collections Castle has planned for 2016. The Black and Gold collection came about for Castle because the technique of “ebonizing” furniture is age old and it looks fantastic with the gilted bronze ornamentation. These pieces are absolute stand outs. They can be used as a single one-of-a-kind piece in a room, or they can also take on an updated look to mix and match with any type of furniture style in a home.

Now officially available, The Black & Gold collection pieces are comprised of French and European styles dating from the Louis XV, Louis XVI, Regency and Empire periods. The pieces are refinished with black lacquer; it makes the gold ornamentation pop beautifully hence the Black & Gold collection. Ebonizing originated in the 16th century and was popularized in the late 19th century. Castle Antiques is reviving the ebonized look in 2016. This collection is meant to be paired or mixed with metal finishes and colors, such as gold, silver and bronze, which are the new trends for 2016.

Established in 1975, Castle Antiques originally started as wholesaler to other antique dealers across the United States. They expanded operations and began catering to interior designers, large design firms and private collectors. Castle Antiques is in the process of expanding online operations in 2016. They are the largest family-owned antique dealer on the west coast, and maintain a 35,000 square ft. showroom full of rare and one of a kind pieces imported from Europe.

Over the years, Castle has evolved into a full service fine antique furniture repair, upholstery and restoration shop, offering an unparalleled level of excellence and craftsmanship.
