Your living rooms are not just for watching TV. They're the focal point of your home where your personal style is on display. Take the opportunity to express yourself through totally unique, high-quality modern furniture accentuated by your favourite artwork and stylish accent pieces.
When you think of most modern furniture, you may associate it with budget-friendly yet not-so-durable Scandinavian styles (mentioning no names). Everyone loves a bargain, so it can be tempting to make the trek to a big-box store for some build-it-yourself furniture in candy colours and shiny materials.
Inexpensive, unassembled furnishings have their place. From college dorm rooms and first apartments to filler pieces when we're on a budget, they can help us furnish a home when funds are low. There comes a time, though, when you get tired of replacing worn-out or broken chairs, tables and beds. The initial savings on that twenty to one hundred-dollar end table aren't so impressive when it starts looking tatty and you have to buy a new one every time you move it.
Good quality, solid furniture built from quality materials won't need to be replaced for decades, provided you don't let your sister's kids stand on it or adopt a puppy that finds it appealing as a chew toy. Well-built furnishings crafted from first-rate materials have the sturdy joints, solid core and sturdy overall construction that enable you to live with the same pieces for decades to come.
Besides saving you money and the hassle of frequent furniture-buying, well-made, unique quality furniture lets you escape the mass-produced look of the cheaper stuff. You're not run-of-the-mill, and your furniture shouldn't be either. Unique designs, gorgeous finishes and other high-end touches set your decor apart from your friends' and neighbours'. An interesting piece of furniture also makes a great conversation-starter.
It's a lot harder to express yourself through furniture that could be found in any home on the block. While you can make the most of cheaper furnishings through the right configurations and great artwork, you just can't hide the fact that they are inexpensive, throw-away pieces designed to last for a couple of years, not decade after decade. If you really want to make an impression and express your style, fill your favourite living space with unique modern living room furniture that's built to last.
While hand-me-downs have a special sentimental value, there are not a lot of things that compare to the feeling of buying YOUR first couch, chair, or dining room table.
But once the excitement calms down and you start turning over the price tags, the activity can become daunting. As a young adult, we have been raised in a very “fast” culture, but furniture shopping takes time.
