Four furniture styles your home needs, now!

Choosing the right style of furniture for your home can be a challenge for many people. Do you
stick to what’s in fashion, opt for classic style, keep things contemporary or simply choose
something that suits your personal tastes? It’s a good idea to keep on top of the trends for interior
décor, as this can help to inspire you. With that in mind, here are four furniture styles that your
home needs!

French furniture

Shabby chic or French furniture is really popular right now – it’s so feminine and pretty. From pale
pastel bedframes to velvet padded headboards and ornate French dressers, this style of furniture
is the ultimate way to pretty-up your home (although you might want to check what the man in
your life thinks first!) Investing in antique French furniture can be expensive, but luckily there are
companies selling stunning high-quality French-style furniture which looks the part and costs a
fraction of the price. Start slowly and add just a couple of pieces to your home before going all out,
to avoid looking like you’ve overdone it!

Minimalist chic

When we think of minimalist, we think of dark wood, cool metal, contemporary materials such as
chrome, plastic and glass. This ultra-modern style of furniture definitely isn’t at home in your
average Victorian semi; save it for urban studio apartments or sprawling converted warehouses
looking for a clean, sleek style. A word of warning though; if you have a lot of belongings,
minimalist chic style furniture won’t work for you!

Regency glamour

Regency style furniture has always been popular amongst the wealthy, but it’s starting to make a
comeback in the average home too this year. If you own a period property with traditional
features such as high ceilings and cornices, regency furniture can add a touch of glamour. Again,
don’t overdo it here. Nobody wants to come into a room piled high with furniture – a simple
Regency0-style chair or sofa can make a real style statement.

Reclaimed and recycled

Reclaimed furniture is hot right now! This doesn’t mean that every single item in your local salvage
yard has a future as a piece of furniture in your front room, but reclaimed pieces can be found in
all sorts of surprising locations! From coffee tables made out of recycled wooden pallets to vintage
typsetter drawers, you’ll always ensure your furniture is unique if you buy reclaimed and recycled
pieces and give them a new lease of life.
