Antique demijohns are gorgeous and useful. Originally used to hold wine, they decorate and light up the garden when battery-operated string lights are inserted.  


2. Mirrors

Antique and vintage mirrors bring light and dimension to the garden. An aged mirror adds depth when propped against a wall, and reflects beautiful plantings and scenes.

3. Chandeliers

Antique chandeliers and candelabras give drama and height to your outdoor living spaces. Whether you use your antique chandeliers for lighting or repurpose them as birdfeeders or windchimes, or display them simply for their romantic beauty, antique chandeliers are charming garden antiques. 

4. Rugs

Antique rugs bring patina and warmth to the outdoors. Many traditional oriental rugs were made by nomad tribes and used outdoors in tents and on dirt floors. If your antique rug is not valuable or has noticeable wear and tear, in a covered outdoor patio or living space you have years more to enjoy the beauty of your rug.
