Why Buy Classic Furniture instead of Following Trends

When choosing furniture pieces, it can be tempting to rush out and grab onto the latest trend. Resist that urge. As challenging as it may be, take your time and choose your furniture pieces wisely. I’m not saying don’t have fun with your interior design. I’m saying be mindful of what you choose.

While a trendy piece here and there can add some flair to your interior design, there are a few classic furniture pieces you should buy rather than following the trends.

Choose a Sofa You Love

Think of your sofa as a long-term relationship. You may not be together forever, but you will be together for quite a while. You’ll go through many changes. A classic piece in a classic color will take you through a variety of interior changes.

A comfortable and stylish sofa such as the Monica Transitional Sofa from Broyhill will stand the test of time. The high-quality coil cushions provide even and resilient support. The neutral fabric can be spiced up with rusts and reds, brightened with greens and yellows, or kept neutral with creams and beiges. This versatile piece melds into any design style.

A Chest of Drawers That Fits in Anywhere

It’d be hard to find a piece of furniture more versatile and practical than a chest of drawers. It can be used as an entryway table, a hallway table, a bedside table, TV stand, or even a wet bar in the living room. Over its lifetime it can store clothing, dining room linens, and even legos.

The smaller bachelor’s chest is almost as versatile as its bigger cousin. Its smaller size makes it perfect for a small hallway or even a bathroom. Look for a piece that isn’t too deep, so it will fit in narrow spaces. A classic chest of drawers will feel right at home alongside your industrial metal chair or a traditional, tufted chaise.

A Beautiful Bed That Stands the Test of Time

The bed is the centerpiece of your sanctuary – your bedroom – so choose one you love. Clean, classic lines will go with just about any style. There are several classic types of beds to choose from: platform, headboard only, panel, and more.

The Monterey Sands King Cypress Point Bed by Lexington features a harmonious balance between contemporary and traditional design with clean, architectural lines and timeless details. The sandy brown Cambria finish gives it a natural look that can blend in with either a sleek leather chair or a comfy, overstuffed, upholstered one.

A Dining Room Table with Extra Leaves

A dining room table with extra leaves will give you the seating you need for gatherings large and small. This is where you will gather for meals, game night, and special occasions. A classic dining room table will give you room for all of these activities. Sure, eating breakfast at a counter is quick and easy, but having a classic dining room table lets you accommodate a crowd when you need to.

By using classic furniture styles in your decor, you can create a home that is a timeless backdrop for trends that come and go. Classic pieces that work today will also work down the road. Choose things that appeal to you, no matter what the trends are. This will give you a home that adapts gracefully to changing styles.
