Same rug in foyer and dining room? - I love how the foyer flows into the dining room. In another pic i noticed a different rug. In your opinion did it look better with two matching rugs or different rugs in the foyer and dining? I have the same layout and am going back and forth on whether to use the same rugs or different. Thank you!

Take a good smell - Your antiques are of a higher quality than the primitives I use in my house. So I want to add another comment for your viewers: smell the piece before you purchase. I've been surprised by musty and other odors once I get a piece into my house.

What should I look for to be sure that a piece is a true antique? - If I am looking for a nice piece of furniture, what things should I look for to be sure that it is truly an antique and not a replica. For example, nails, screw, etc.? Thank you, Halina

On pieces like this I look for old marble. This piece had a very old terrazzo slab on top. I also look at drawer construction, Dovetail joinery on the drawers is a good sign. Try to find any kind of marking or label that would give you a clue to a maker or a manufacturing date. I also look at subject matter of any patterns. Finally, look for some signs of aging like fading or small cracks or chips. Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart

Charmean is correct about the "dovetail" joinery... although genuinely old pieces will look more "hand cut" and a little less precise than reproduction pieces.
Unfortunately, for true aficionados, the "antique knock-off" business get's better all the time.

I've seen things that come out of Mexico that you could swear looked 100+ years old.
As far as the wood... Oak furniture was almost ALWAYS produced using quarter sawn white oak, and most old Walnut pieces used a lot of "burl" in book matched veneers.
Nails, screws, & assorted fasteners would typically discolor the surrounding wood on old pieces... but that "effect" can be emulated chemically by someone with knowledge.

Where can I get this commode and mirror and what's the cost?

This particular commode and mirror were found through antiques dealers. To my knowledge they are one of a kind. I suggest you search in your area antique stores, and online sites like eBay or 1st Dibs.
The cost of a similar commode that is of similar age should be around 4-6k. The mirror is early 20th century Italian with gold leaf detailing, it was around 1k. Thank you for your interest.

Hi Laura. The side chairs at the table are The Klismos Chair by Kreiss. The chairs on the ends are custom from my furniture line Forse Domani. The larger chairs in the entry are also custom from my line. Thanks for your interest, let me know if you need anything further. Charmean

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Finish Rooms the Elegant Way With Marquetry Furniture
A French 19th-century commode graces this formal entry. The pattern is typical of this era and features two tones of mahogany depicting flowers and instruments on the sides. The piece is topped with a vintage marble slab.
A final caution. Despite what you've seen on Antiques Roadshow, buying antiques is not a reliable way to get rich quick. Don't purchase a piece as an investment unless you're either a professional dealer or a savvy collector. While you can usually recoup the cost of a fine antique, the possibility that it's an undiscovered treasure worth 10 times what you paid for it is extremely unlikely.More: 7 Favorite Vintage Furniture Sites
I have a client who has a clock that has been passed down through her family for generations. She doesn’t feel any emotional attachment to it, but it was originally a gift from Napoleon. Napoleon! In this case the item has too much historical and monetary value to be transformed into something new. The clock, which she respects but doesn’t love, is not the focus of the room.
