How to choose classic furniture
Classic furniture and timeless looks for less
Classic furniture, which should never be out of fashion, is definitely back in vogue. Over recent years a rise in cheap furniture and kitsch styles has meant an influx of all things totally trendy. But throwaway furniture has finally been disposed of and both designers and homeowners are embracing a much more classic approach.
So what defines classic furniture? The essence of classic furniture has to lie in good design and good design never dates. Classic furniture is the furniture you don’t want to part with. The furniture your friends admire and your children covet. A beautifully styled sideboard, for example, solidly constructed from the finest wood. Classic furniture should be easy to live with as it is easy on the eye. It should blend in with any decor and complement existing pieces. Its appeal is something that should last and last and last.
Traditional classic furniture or contemporary classic furniture?
Most living spaces will need an occasional table or two and your choice will naturally depend on space available. At Love Furniture we have a classic selection .
Side, wine or end tables are smaller and usually decorative, doubling up as lamp tables. Coffee tables need more space as they’re longer and lower but sometimes have drawers or shelves for storage – many are adapted to allow for CD/DVD storage. Our mango hardwood range are particularly attractive examples of contemporary designs with classic appeal.
Nests of tables comprise 2 or 3 compact side tables of slightly differing size that nest inside each other for storage, great for small spaces and ideal to bring out for entertaining. Console tables are generally taller and used in halls and dining rooms, or at the back of sofas in open plan spaces and have a far more decorative use. Again the cube style of our mango range has pieces that are destined to be real classics.
Classic furniture styling makes dining in the new dining out
The dining room is another place that can benefit greatly from well chosen classic furniture. At Love Furniture, even a modest budget can create sleek and sophisticated dining. In fact, we have some particularly elegant solutions to help maximise your space for entertaining.
The rustic warmth of solid oak combined with the refectory feel of our Provence range, adds a touch of farmhouse chic to even the most urban space. This classic furniture collection includes tables, chairs and sideboards.
Or make a big impression with a splash of colour. The bold design of our Cube dining range, in 100% solid walnut coloured mango timber, with its vibrant leather chair seats (choose from fiery red, cool white or ink black) is deeply exotic. Team it with the matching chunky sideboard or our other mango timber pieces for maximum effect.
