Previously we looked at the top ten timeless furniture pieces that will never go out of style – and now we have 10 more to add!
Home décor is very personable – it can convey a lot about who you are as a person. And while trends can be fun (that Kmart Flamingo Neon Light seemed like a good idea at the time!), these types of styles are generally fleeting, and the regret-factor can set in fast.
Never fear though, there are still statement pieces out there in the homewares abyss that defy the every-changing, on-trend, throw-away nature of current décor. Check out our list showcasing 10 more pieces of furniture you should consider the next time your inner interior-designer emerges!
Oriental rugs are pile woven or flat woven rugs made of various materials including wool, cotton and silk. These rugs are hand-knotted in the Middle East and Asian countries and can help ground your living room furniture to create a unified space. Offered in various sizing, the rug instantly ups the ‘classic’ factor in any room, and with so many varying colours and patterns, there is something for everyone.
Any piece of inbuilt furniture helps generate an easier flow in a home, but the inbuilt bookshelf really is a feature in itself. By becoming a part of the architecture of the home, the clutter you generally find in a bookshelf disappears into the background, which always helps offer timeless appeal.
Stylish and practical, the tufted headboard retains its position as a classic. Adding a sense of sophistication and warmth, the tufted headboard can draw the eye and become a focus point, making a huge impact on the overall feel of the bedroom.
Wingback accent chair
The wingback chair really does add a sense of luxury to any space. Originally designed to sit in front of fireplaces where the wings could envelope the heat and keep you toasty, the wingback chair has since adapted to more stylish, modern designs that are all about personality! Add one to the head of your dining table, the bedroom as an accent chair or in the living room as a cosy reading nook – whatever the situation, this chair is versatile!
Nothing says relaxation like the French chaise longue. Literally translating to ‘long chair’, the Greeks and Romans loved them, and so do we! With so many styles available, you are guaranteed to find a match for your aesthetics while adding a timeless piece to your ever-growing collection. Stretching out with a good book never felt so good!
Ah the tulip table – designed by Eero Saarinen and inspired by a ‘high viscosity liquid drop’, his solution to removing the inconvenience of table legs has resulted in a timeless addition to the furniture world. Indoors, outdoors, dining table or coffee table – the tulip design works everywhere!
Painted, stained or polished, earthy woods or rustic white – the Windsor chair comes in so many styles it would be impossible not to find one you love.

Eames lounge chair
The Eames lounge chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames, whose vision was to create a chair that had the receptive look of a ‘worn baseball mitt’ – and they nailed it. Universally recognised, it is the perfect lounge chair that elevates any space it is placed in.
