Home Furniture: Let's talk essentials

by Katie Robertson

Your home is so much more than just the place you live. The idea of 'home' has a significant impact on our emotions and wellbeing.

People will often only consider two factors when purchasing new furniture: price and design. Although price and design are essential, they are not the only aspects we should consider when furnishing our homes. 
Below, we have complied a list 'Home Essentials' to help you get started on your home decor journey! 

1. Side Tables

A side table is a small table, often placed beside couches and beds. Their primary  purpose is to ensure that essential items are within easy reach while adding convenience and major style points to your room. Side tables can offer the most significant impact, whether you want to make an eye-catching statement or fulfil a practical demand.

2. Leather Sofas

A leather sofa can provide a certain elegance to a room that is hard to duplicate with a fabric sofa. Leather sofas tend to appear sleeker and more high-end than most fabric sofas. Leather is durable and can last for decades if cared for properly.

3. Rounded Dining Tables

A round dining table is ideal for those who want to encourage conversation around the dinner table. According to Feng Shui, round dining tables create positive energy and encourage a sense of unity between those around the table due to the single curved edge.

4. Dining Chairs

Dining chairs play a significant role in making your dining room look complete. Choosing the right set of dining chairs is vital because it's not just a piece of furniture; it's a statement piece. Let your personality shine through by incorporating an extra style element with unusual colours, shapes, and patterns.

5. Console Tables

A console table is a shallow table, often standing alone, placed against a wall in an entryway, hallway or home office. With the correct placement, a console table can be used in various ways and can add a beautiful stylistic accent to any space.

6. Sideboards

Sideboards are traditionally rectangular, waist-height units that sit against a wall in the dining room, providing excellent storage space. Sideboards have many uses, from storing the Sunday-best serving ware to providing a cocktail hour mini bar!

7. Love Seats

Add a touch of style and a feeling of extravagance to your home with a Love Seat! Love Seats are an excellent sofa alternative. Whether you're furnishing a small flat or house that already has a lot of furniture. Love Seats are ideal for an area that is too small for a large sofa but still requires seating.
