Make your dream home a reality by properly planning and purchasing the right furniture. Choose smart foundation pieces for each room and build upon them. While you might envision a vintage velvet green Chesterfield as your family room sofa, it would be better to get a classic-shaped beige couch and then accessorize it with vintage velvet pillows and blankets. Think about the future when designing your current home.
It’s time to invest in high-quality foundation furniture that can move from house to house for decades to come. You can layer accessories and smaller pieces around these five essential furniture pieces to bring unique character into your home.
1. A Timeless Sofa
You sit, lounge, snuggle and sleep on it. The sofa is the heart of your living room. This is one piece you don’t want to skimp on because it will stay with you for years to come. When selecting a couch that suits your lifestyle, consider fabrics, durability, style and comfort. Decide on the feel you’re trying to create — rustic, modern, Tuscan or traditional. Keep in mind design aspects of your home like flooring and wall color as well when selecting your sofa; and remember it’s easiest to build on a classic piece.
