Moving into a new home is a life experience that few people describe as "fun". Buying furniture can be expensive, especially if you are buying new, so it is always good to shop around and do your research on the furniture your home most needs.
Whether you are buying a new home, moving residences, or simply looking to make your current living space more…livable, home furnishings are a necessity.
Some people prefer to have their house or living space thoroughly furnished while others prefer a more simple, uncluttered home with only the most necessary of furnishings.
Whatever your personal style, here is the five most essential furniture items to have in your home.
#Sofa or Sofa-Bed
The sofa is the heart of your home. This is where the family likes to relax together, this is where movie night happens with friends, even old fashioned game nights.
Sofas bring opportunities for all types of gatherings and investing in a good sofa is essential to any home.
Linen sofas are the pinnacle of comfort and premium relaxation. Keeping a natural colour palette allows you to stay felxible when matching and styling your home.
Add a touch of class with a classic yet modern chesterfield sofa in possibly in high quality velvet. Chesterfield sofa are just immaculate in velvet, instantly adding character to your space whilst maintaining superior comfort.
When choosing a sofa for your room think about size, colors and texture. We recommend to stick to a neutral color palette that you can then add pillows in your favorite accent colors. Neutral colour sofas can be treated as a blank canvas where you can decorate using throws and cushions making your living room space more unique.
Dining Tables would be our next recommendation. Especially for larger families, a dining table is essential. Most of us use our dining tables at least twice a day. Using wood as the primary material can bring warmth and in turn calms the mind.
Sometimes space can be limited for a large dining table so we recommend choosing a table that fits in your space whilst being able to expand to accommodate more seats just in case you have guests over for dinner.
Your space might be enough but for big family gatherings its important to consider a square or a round table so that you can make the most of the convivial energy and feelings.
When it comes to Dining Chairs don’t just get a matching set. Sometimes it fun to create some form of variety. Place captain chairs at both end of the table completely unique from the rest.
Each chair affects your emotions differently so choose something that brings a sense of home to your space.
If any piece of furniture in our home should reflect our style, it should be the bed. Having good quality sleep goes hand in hand with quality living.
If you love a minimal yet elegant room, a sturdy and solid wood frame bed will help you reach that modern aesthetic. Having a seamless and distraction-free bedroom will help you sleep even better.
Choosing a velvet or linen bed frame will help you achieve that classy and cozy look. A bed frame with classic lines and a padded headboard with professional stitching details creates a haven for relaxation. A bed that is both comfortable and solid will serve your bedroom for many years to come.
Making sure you have enough room for reasonably large Coffee Table or even a pair of coffee tables in different sizes is very important. A good coffee table should provide enough surface space for your decorations, mugs or books. It should be able to house your daily needs especially within the living room space.
Transforming space saving furniture – an easy solution to use available square meters of your flat or house effectively. The convertible and adjustable heights coffee tables transform into dining tables to maximize both the space and style of your interior.
These innovative furniture pieces also come in a range of styles but the majority is focused on stone and wood. Make sure you take note of all functionalities you will be needing to accomodate for. Then you can you make a more definitive decision.
The material is also essential as it can make or break the style and mood of the living space. The tables with marble top are extremely popular. You can find many options available from natural marble or synthetic materials such ceramic or melamine with marble-effect. The melamine or ceramic as matelais might be more practical, as both materials are heat-resistant and are easy to clean whilst keeping that luxury marble touch.
If your space is limited or has low ceilings with an industrial or modern aesthetic, a low coffee table can help remove a any tightness that can be felt in the space. The style can vary depending on your choice but we recommend having subtle grey tones matching with any exposed elements like concrete or stone.
Our Gia Transforming Coffee Table with grey pine effect top shouts modernity and brutalism. The Gia coffee table easily disappears under a bed or sofa to gain more space in the room. When open Gia is a solid workstation or dining table.
Another option finding interconnecting coffee table pairs for example a walnut finish coffee table that can be best matched with more neutral colours and raw materials like stone or wood flooring.
A coffee table does not always have made of wood or metal, an upholstered Footstool or Ottoman can also work just as well.
Sometime we want to stretch our legs and rest which is why the Ciao Round Velvet Ottoman is a fantastic choice. You can place a stone or metal tray for your tea or coffee some books or magazines store some Throws or Cushions and still have enough space to rest your feet.
If you have multiple sofas and not all can reach to the same table you can consider including small side tables just to store some of the recent books you have been reading some flowers or even your favorite mug.
Our Sentrum Collection is simple, modern and thoughtful whilst not taking too much of your living space.
The bottom line is that moving to a new home and making important decisions in a short period of time is extremely challenging. The important thing is to decide on key furniture pieces that will define the entire style, and will be cornerstones for your interior.
Double check all room sizes before you make any purchase so that you don't have deal with the stress of returning if your new sofa or bed is too small or too big for your space.
