Church pews are not just used as church furniture anymore. Pews make an excellent addition to any sitting area in your home. In addition to being functional, they bring tasteful historical flare to your home and are frequently antiques. Churches are often the oldest buildings in their areas and are larger than most buildings from their era in the area. Traditional cathedrals have a cruciform footprint, giving them three alleys of pews. Because of this, whenever they close or are renovated, they often have many antique church pews for sale that you can purchase to add some charm to your home.
Aside from being antiques, they bring historical intrigue to your home. Prior to the Protestant Reformation, churches generally did not have pews. The emphasis on sermons in Protestantism required more permanent, general seating in churches and so the pew came into common use. Because of this, church pews have become as symbolic of modern Christianity as church steeples. If you are interested in history or like to decorate your home with souvenirs from travel and other historical artifacts, a pew could be a great addition to your home. Churches are everywhere, so it is likely that there are church pews for sale nearby that you can acquire.
