So how do you know if your furniture really is an antique? 

Horsehair – a very traditional filling. The furniture will have a hard solid look to it. Squeeze the arm or back and a slight crunching noise will be heard.

Coir – course fibre filling extracted from the outer shell of a coconut. Again, a crunching sound will be heard when squeezed. 

Coil springs – typically found in the seat area but can also be incorporated into the arms and the back.
