When decorating a home, it can be challenging to decide on furniture. After all, there are so many options to choose from. Furthermore, what we like today might not be in style as long as we’d like. To minimize the stress and to get a good return on your investment, it’s a good idea to invest in timeless pieces that will never go out of style. Knowing what these are can really make the shopping process easier and more enjoyable. Here are 5 furniture pieces you can always count on.
1. Wingback chair
With its high back, wooden legs, and signature winged sides, the wingback chair is probably the most widely recognized accent chair. Striking, yet sensible, this 17th-century classic is one worth considering for your home. With its distinctive shape, a wingback chair can make a statement anywhere regardless of your decorating style.
2. Tufted headboard
Tufted headboards are beloved by designers and homeowners alike. With their undeniable style and beauty, is it any wonder? Additionally, tufted headboards are the epitome of comfort, which is what we all want in our home— especially the bedroom.
3. Canopy bed
At one time, a canopy bed was considered a luxury. They were designed to provide warmth, privacy, and style for the most elaborate of chambers. Today, however, canopy beds are much more affordable and not quite as grandiose (although they can be). Those tall, trademark posts can still certainly be draped with soft fabrics to set a mood. However, many canopy beds can make a statement without any additional decorative assistance.
4. Chaise lounge
Don’t let the French name fool you: the chaise lounge has a much older history, dating back to the days of ancient Egypt and ancient Greece. Known for its unique style, a chaise lounge can best be described as an upholstered sofa in the shape of a chair that is long enough to support the legs whether seated or lying down. Unlike an actual sofa which can seat multiple people, a chaise is only meant for one person at a time. If you are in need of ultimate relaxation, a chaise lounge chair can be the perfect piece.
5. Oriental rug
When it comes to area rugs, Oriental ones are as classic as they come. hand-knotted only in areas of Iran, China, India, Turkey, Pakistan, Tibet, Nepal, and Russia, Oriental rugs are a thing of beauty; a piece that evokes pure timelessness. Today, these rugs fit in any room style, from contemporary to traditional. Their style is certainly multifaceted, allowing us to ground a space and pull a color scheme together all while providing comfort under our feet and making a significant design statement.
