Antique Furniture Interior Design.
Our focus is to assist buyers who are ready to move on from the world of mass-produced furniture. Be daring enough to explore the world of antiques…the world of living art.
 
Designing rooms that incorporate antiques is an art. It requires knowledge of the furniture itself. It transcends the fads and trends of what is immediately current and speaks to what will survive. History and provenance play a role in how an antique is be presented…even if that is to break away from tradition. When dealing with high quality antiques, authenticity is essential and quality paramount. To place a fake or compromised piece of furniture into a beautiful home only becomes a disappointment into the future.

Our Buying Criteria

It is our intention to buy our collection in original condition and it is to our customers absolute benefit that we do this.

By buying our antiques in original condition, we have the significant advantage of being able to see what has, and has not been done to a piece over time. Has the quality been compromised? Has the integrity been compromised? We only buy antiques that are sound. Once a piece has been restored by another dealer, it becomes significantly more difficult to establish its integrity.

Wallrocks have very strict buying criteria…

  • The furniture must be antique;
  • Antiques must be of a very high quality;
  •  Our antiques must have correct proportion;
  • Importantly, they must have integrity and aesthetic appeal.

While these criteria might seem obvious, it is difficult to find furniture that satisfy all these criteria at once.

"We had been searching for the right antique bed for many years, luckily enough we found ours with Wallrocks. Being located interstate, Wallrocks kept an open and involved line of communication as they undertook the restoration and reupholstery process. We are very pleased with the full package that Wallrocks provided, and have complete satisfaction with our purchase. We consider our experience with Wallrocks to be first class. "

""Hello Jessica I just wanted to thank you ……I love the bed! It has surpassed all expectations. I am amazed at how beautiful it is. Please pass on this note to any who are considering buying an antique through “Wallrocks” It is encouraging to find people that can combine passion with their work and this was evident from the first time I stepped through the door at Wallrocks. Nick Wallrock’s qualifications and experience in sourcing antiques is demonstrated in the simple act of displaying the antiques in their natural un-restored state. Most insightful, as it allowed me to see the piece I intended to buy for what it truly is. Seeing restoration take place on site further bolstered my approval that the piece I bought would be given the respect it deserved. Lynden and Peter are truly gifted restorers as evident in the finished piece. I enjoyed talking with them and seeing their restoration work in progress. Visualising the finished piece in my home was an easy step to take with the assistance of Jessica Wallrock (Nick’s daughter). Jessica’s has a natural ability with style and taste. Jessica imparted to me that antiques are not only beautiful but also useful and easily incorporated into the modern home. I hope that your experience with “Wallrocks” is as rewarding as mine. To Jessica, Nick and everyone at Wallrocks…..Thank You. I look forward to dealing with you in the future.""

"Thank you Jessica and the whole team at Wallrock’s Antiques, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. Without your ability and help in tracking down specific pieces that my client required for their federation era property I would have been lost. The quality of the pieces are first rate, the service amazing and whenever I had a gap in my project, it was Wallrock’s who I rang first. The great surprise was having Nick Wallrock personally deliver the items to site and have the opportunity to talk antiques, architecture and have his experienced eye cast over what we had been up to. There is an obvious passion for quality antiques and history throughout the multiple generations of Wallrock’s Antiques."
