It’s always scary splashing out on your first investment piece, so I’ve put together five key pieces and some fun ideas that won’t go out of style.
Chesterfield Sofas are a timeless and elegant edition to any home. Most Chesterfield Sofas have a buttoned detailing on the back and matched with their straight arms and back, make a striking furniture statement.
The gravitas that a Chesterfield Sofa can bring to a room is unquestionable, a true testament to its enduring appeal. It is after all, quite possibly the most iconic and well-known style of furniture renowned for it’s elegance, simplicity and durability, making it an investment that will remain in the family for years to come.

Rugs are a great way to tie a space together and add warmth to a room. While the world of colours and patterns is vast, the rich texture provides all the benefits of the rug without the risk of it aging prematurely or becoming dated. Their intricate patterns and warm colours give a sense of exoticism whilst providing a homely feel, serving as the perfect backdrop for changing trends.
These rugs work well laid over wooden floorboards, stone and carpet alike. The most skilfully handwoven rugs can be pricey, but will last your family years, traditionally being handed down the family for generations.
A striking over-mantel mirror can be a beautiful decorative yet practical statement to your room, creating space and light in the smallest of rooms. For true traditional elegance, go for a shabby chic French renaissance style. This style can be combined with any interior decor to create an eclectic interior appeal and on trend look.
With their ornate frames, these detailed pieces can add a wow factor to your wall, and if you invest in one you can ensure you will have it for years to come.
A dining table is the focal point for every occasion, whether you’re hosting a party, entertaining, or everyday family dining. Your dining room should have a visual impact and your dining table can be that.
The key is to keep it classic, a dining table in a classic neutral finish will go a long way between everyday meals and large dinner parties. Another way to ensure your dining table will stand the tests of time is to ensure it is flexible, an extendable dining table for example can be a blessing for special occasions where you need the extra table space.
The jewellery of the room and lighting fixtures can make a space. Whether it is a small fixture or a classic chandelier style, make sure the finish is a timeless and versatile option of lighting for you. A carefully chosen centrepiece can serve you well for years to come, and withstand every trend, which is why it is important to do your research before you buy.
While there are many stunning designs on the market, select pieces that complement your home, whilst remaining practical for the function you need it for.
