You remember how you decorated your first apartment or home. Everyone from Aunt Suzie to your Mom had some piece of furniture that no one has used for while but they donated to you so you would have some furniture. Couches that have seen better days, well used dining rooms tables and rickety chairs that just can’t seem to stop wobbling. Grateful to have something, you took them in secretly hoping there will come a day that you can replace these with something that better reflects your tastes and style.
It has been said before and bears repeating, when buying furniture buy solid, good pieces that will last. It is better to invest in quality furniture that will be able to be used for many years than inexpensive pieces that will not hold up under use. Also pieces that are bought during a fad will look dated after awhile making your home look dated as well.
This is waste of your time and money instead invest in designer furniture. It is an excellent choice because it provides a range of well crafted pieces that will not need to be replaced and will continue to provide timeless style. Choosing between traditional, contemporary or modern luxury furniture is simply a matter of visiting a few designer showrooms. Here you can look at furniture pieces arranged in possible uses for a bedroom, dining room or a living room. Use these as an opportunity to pick and choose pieces that might work in your space. Be sure to know how large your rooms are. A good designer will provide measurements of the furniture pieces so you will not fall in love and purchase a sofa that is not going to fit.
Bring some luxury into your selections. Modern furniture lends itself to being clean and crisp creating an upscale feel. Traditional furniture is always a wise investment as it provides the bones from which you can work from. A classic sofa with rounded arms and ball feet fits right in with an antique scroll mirror and a leather side chair. Look to accent pieces that can be more easily and inexpensively changed out to keep your rooms fresh. Changing out furniture pieces is expensive and with the right selections for your main furniture pieces sofa, chairs, dining room set, beds and dressers it should be unnecessary. Luxury shouldn’t be expensive so look for sales or odd pieces to incorporate into your design plans, no more Aunt Suzie!
