Walking The Line
A dry environment can damage your antique furniture; this is why it is important to use humidifiers in dry environments.

Do Not Leave It In The Sun
Leaving your furniture in the sun will damage it, so make sure you make a place for your antique piece of furniture somewhere where there is no much direct sun or light.
Dealing With Pest Infection
If you happen to notice a pest infection make sure you remove your antique furniture right away. Not to mention the fact that your furniture might be of great value, which is not appreciated by rats, mice, and beetles.
