From your sofa, to your bed, to your wardrobe, there’s no doubt your home is filled with pieces of furniture that serve a specific purpose. Whether you’re sitting, sleeping or storing away your belongings, these essentials are there to help. However, these pieces of furniture go beyond function. In fact, the models and designs we go for can help define a particular look and feel throughout our entire homes. So, to ensure your furnishings make a style statement, keep reading!

Pay attention to the finer details
It’s all about paying attention to the finer details. While plain and simple works in some spaces, it won’t always make heads turn. So, if you’re keen to get your look spot on, keep an eye out for pieces that have character and flair.

French furniture is a great example of this. These furnishings often feature intricate detailing such as distressed finishes, curved edges and elaborate cut-outs. As furniture specialists Crown French Furniture point out, French furniture offers a feeling of luxury and individuality, helping to give your rooms a little extra style and sophistication.

Look out for interesting shapes
To really step up your style game, why not go for pieces with unusual shapes? You’re guaranteed to make your spaces look more interesting if you ditch clean, straight lines for furnishings with distinctive structures. For instance, instead of opting for a dining room table with sharp, linear edges, you could go for a design with a rounded, oblong surface. When it comes to seating, rather than choosing a traditional, straight-backed armchair, you could go for something totally different, like a luxuriously curved chaise lounge.

Consider pieces with unusual patterns 
When it comes to choosing furniture for your home, you might be automatically drawn to pieces with a plain, solid colour. However, if you want to up your style status, you might want to try looking out for furnishings with unusual patterns and prints. For example, you could steer clear of sofas that have been upholstered in plain materials and instead opt for a model with a striking print such as chic chevrons. Similarly, you could go for wooden furniture that has as a pretty floral design or a modern-looking marble coffee table.

There are many ways in which the furniture you choose for your home can help boost your style credentials. Do you have your own decor tips? Share them in the comments below!
