By avoiding stripping off the old finish, and touching up and restoring damages to the finish, the furniture retains the patina it has acquired over the years. The term "patina" encompasses various age and environmentally-related influences upon furniture. Light, especially sunlight, and even dim incandescent bulbs in a sunless elevator will bleach the color of the wood over the years, and reduce the contrast of the wood grain. Light bleaching makes the grain appear more homogeneous in color, with less range between the light and dark colors in the wood, and especially fades red colors, and lightens all the colors in the wood. Oxidation of the finish reduces the clarity of the finish, making it appear murkier and eventually darker, semi-opaque, or even black and alligatored, to make the furniture look as if it was in a fire. If one was a purist and always preferring conservation, then the advanced deterioration of an old finish should be treasured, and to some it is. But visiting any upscale antique show, one will rarely find a piece with dark, severe oxidation of a French polished shellac finish. Antique dealers would not admit it, but they will generally skin a severely oxidized furniture finish they find because too few prospective clients will value furniture in that blackened condition unless it is medieval or from the Renaissance period.

It very much depends on the type of establishment where your reception furniture is being placed. If in a hotel, for example, you will probably focus more on style rather than function, but it is still important that you choose furniture that people of all ages can appreciate. Remember, just because its your taste doesn't mean it will be everyone else's, and you really have to push sentiment aside when buying public reception furniture because it is far more important that you opt for colours and styles that will appeal to a wide audience rather than just yourself.
