Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have reportedly been visiting antique emporiums around Los Angeles as they kit out their new mansion with furniture.

The couple have allegedly been seen on mega shopping sprees to find unusual pieces for their new $21 million Beverly Hills mansion.

The amount the couple are thought to have forked out on their furnishings is said to be $3 million in just two weeks.

"One of the most expensive items was an 18th-century mahogany rocking chair, which cost in the region of $1 million," a source told UK magazine Grazia. "It was apparently used by Founding Father Benjamin Franklin."

The insider reports that Jennifer fell in love with a $300,000 Georgian bookcase. Her fiancé 41-year-old actor Justin is also said to have grown fond of antiques, with his buys reflecting a more personal meaning.

"Justin's favourite piece was a longcase Tompion English clock from the 1660s, which was said to have been used by British royalty. He recalled his grandfather having a similar one and wanted something like it," an insider explained. "They're both extremely happy with all they've purchased, but they haven't finished yet. The house is going to be crammed with history by the time they are done."

The pair are thought to be planning to hold their upcoming wedding inside the new property which explains their decadent buys. Sources say the twosome haven't restricted their furniture to just old items, and have also dabbled in contemporary pieces, including a chaise lounge by Australian designer Marc Newson.

"While it wasn't an antique, it was one of his first designs, which is what attracted Jen and Justin," the source finished.
