Hey Guys,
Do you know any good places to find 18th reproduction furniture that wouldnt cost a fortune? I am in the US, thanks!

Here are some examples from Magnolia Hall, but I think they're rather tasteless reproductions, lacking the grace of the originals.

Try Pierre Deux, Ebay has a few good things, and Brocade home has more modern and very well crafted pieces.

I don't think this is cheap but it is nice. The furniture is well white, however the design is nice you can also select another color. I know I like it. This is what I would have in mind when decorating my home. In order to get rococo for cheaper perhaps a flea market would be best. I'm not sure.

Here is a picture.

I don't think that all of the Magnolia Hall stuff was that bad; it was just in a modern room and not a rococo room. Some of it was definitely too Barbie-ish, but the curio cabinet was quite nice, I thought, and I'm sure that you could find a few more items that would do well in a properly decorated room.

Actually I like the Magnolia hall bed and dressing table, and the whole living room set. I think it is rather glamorous!..... In a Barbie sort of way :wink:

I don’t like the first picture, too much for me but the second is slightly better. However I don’t think I would ever decorate my house this way. :?

Some of the pictures are frankly just tacky

Expressly. But the second is lovely.

Actually I take that back. The bedroom is tacky

Hard to determine what in rococo is beautiful and what just tacky. Depends on the taste?

Here is one lovely 18th century table-
