INVESTING IN HIGH-QUALITY FURNITURE
We believe that building a home is more than choosing furniture and hanging pictures on the wall — these are objects that will set the scene for your everyday life and provide the backdrop for memorable moments all year round. So, instead of quick-wins, spur-of-the-moment purchases and throwaway furniture, gather the pieces that your heart wants, that your home will thank you for, and that is an investment to last a lifetime. Whether it’s the beloved armchair you curl up on at the end of a long day, or the kitchen table that holds the stories of a thousand family dinners, there’s nothing quite as personal as Investing in high-quality furniture.
Furniture that lasts the course is worth far more than the price tag attached to it. It’s been made with thought, craftsmanship, and care. And the result is a bed, table, sofa or dresser that makes you feel good each time you use it. ‘Buy less, choose well.’
THREE WISE INVESTMENTS
Some investment pieces are about want over need, but a bed is a sheer necessity. The common thread with investment pieces, however, are designs that are made well so that they last the course. Not just in terms of substance, but in terms of style (more timeless rather than trend-driven). You spend half your life in bed, so if you invest in one thing, make it your bed, mattress, and a nice set of sheets this year. You can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep.
AN EXTENDABLE DINING TABLE
From dinner parties that lasted long beyond bedtime to hectic Sunday lunches with the family, a great kitchen table tells a story. The beauty of an extendable dining table is that you can make the most of your space. Even if you’re not short on space, you might not want a dining table that seats eight, ten or twelve people dominating the floor space most of the time. And an extendable dining table gives you that freedom to make your home a place just for you or for many.
Don’t forget the chairs. They really shouldn’t be an afterthought because they also influence whether a table works. And if you’re choosing new dining chairs, sit on them…then sit some more. Because a good chair is designed with behinds and backs in mind. And a bad one will have you shifting, stretching and fidgeting within minutes.
Upholstery — a sofa or armchair in particular. Where you put your feet up in your living room is something you hopefully get to enjoy every day of the week. Instead of compromising on the style of sofa or armchair that you want, invest in what’s going to make you happy. One that’s made exactly to your standards inside and out — because we all know it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The comfort you’ll feel from it and the way that it elevates the look of the room is something you’ll reap the rewards of day in and day out, year in and year out.
Nothing beats sinking into a well-made, cozy sofa at the end of a long day. A great sofa stands out for the quality of materials used, from feather and down fillings to quality solid wood frames. Many of our vendors also offer the softest performance fabrics that will help with repelling stains and pilling.
