This may be an unusual question, but I am getting my own apartment and I would like to decorate it medieval style, or if anyone ever played Elder Scrolls I want to mimic some of those rooms.

For example, I am looking into furniture and would really like something that's old fashioned and wooden. I think my only option is to visit an antique store.

I'm still having internet and a TV etc. but I would like to place to have that "medieval feel" if that makes sense.

My only guess to find those types of items would be from an antique shop, any ideas?

Why? Do you hate getting laid?

Over in one. Good job!

Thanks. I try. 

But he may be into all that dungeons, whips, and chains type of thing and I'm sure there are women out there that would be happy to oblige his predilections in that direction, he would need to learn to call them "Mistress" though.

Just find a girl that's into chains and dungeons.  She could be the only soft place to land in the whole place.

 

Weird idea.   But, I've heard weirder, I guess.  There was a couple on some reality show my wife watched that lived like pirates.

 

I vote for 'build it yourself'.

She may like the whips as well though but he may be into that.

It's easier to find a woman who's into BDSM than a woman who wants to live in Middle Ages RPG larper decor 24/7/365. 

Maybe someone on this site could help you out. http://www.medievalacademy.org/

Great idea!

One option is to make some furniture yourself. Home Depot will cut boards to size for a table top and you can use pieces of wood as legs and fit it all together with wood screws. Same with chairs or stools. It all depends on how handy you are.

Once you have the furniture, you can stain it with a nice wood stain, then decorate it by stenciling or with metal stamps, or leave it simple and beat it up a bit with a length of heavy duty chain for a real Viking/medieval effect. Then varnish it or leave it unvarnished.

If you're not the handyman type, unfinished wood stores will often make simple furniture to your specs.

Here's a Pinterest page to show some ideas: Medieval furniture & woodworking

Some good ideas come up with a simple Google search for "Skyrim furniture images"

This sort of thing can be a bit spartan, so to add a bit of comfort you can buy medieval style cushions like these at Pier One. They also have rugs and bedcovers with geometric patterns - very evocative of medieval times.

Furniture?  Make your own.  Distress it and stain it dark.  Use primary colors or at most 2nd colors.
