Our Essentials for a Luxury HomeJuly 23, 2021
When considering furnishing a home with a touch of luxury, there are a few foundational elements that we believe are absolutely essential in any design plan. They are those quality pieces that you’ll have forever – the pieces that will see you through all the moves, through the seasons and through the years.
Because they’ll undoubtedly be with you for a long time, these are also pieces to take your time in choosing. Ponder how their style and function will endure the different chapters of your life and always, always err on the side of quality. Here’s some of our non-negotiables when it comes to home decorating for luxury and liveability.
At Design Warehouse we love the look of a beautiful sofa, be it a sprawling seating arrangement that is big on space and long on style or a cosy two-seater tucked beneath a window for contemplation. The right sofa choice can help define the style of a room, and we have curated a selection of stellar examples that are designed and handmade in Italy with aesthetics top of mind.
Handmade with love and care, the Little Wing Sofa by Giorgio Soressi embodies stylish Italian design. Accentuated with a curved arm on the left or right and a low (basso) back, the frame is of solid and multi-layered wood, imparting a sense of solidity as well as pure northern Italian style. The ultimate in comfort, the seat has goose feathers with polyurethane non-deformable foam insert, the back cushions pure goose feather for the ultimate in luxury we all deserve. With a steel cross base and polished black chrome finish, the Little Wing sofa (pictured above) is also available in three sizes and with fabric or leather upholstery, so you can ensure the perfect fit for your home or commercial space.
A Club Chair You Won’t Want to Leave
A club or lounge chair is a versatile piece which can be used in a formal lounge, a casual living room, a bedroom, a study or a snug – basically anywhere you find yourself curling up with a book and a beverage.
Proudly bold and contemporary, we highly recommend the Belladonna Relaxing Chair by ERBA (right). Belladonna is here to make a statement, and comes draped in luxurious Lario Velluto. Demanding your attention, you certainly can’t ignore this eye-catching armchair in all its modern glory. From the sumptuous feel of the premium velvet to the daring silhouette of the chair, this is splendour at its very best. Available in several deliciously rich tones and set on a brushed metal swivel base, this is an armchair to be used and loved for a lifetime.
An All-weather Dining Table for Al fresco Entertaining in Style
If you’re planning a more formal meal but still want to take things al fresco, the Capri Extension Table and Twelve Como Chairs Set is the ideal choice. It includes the largest dining table available in our range of stunning teak tables, and being dignified, accomplished and multi-functional; it’s the most versatile and popular set we have on offer.
The Capri Extension Table and Twelve Como Chairs Set includes our fabulous, ergonomic Como Chairs, with two arms and ten sides. The central focus is the amazing Capri Oval Double Extension Table, which extends from an astonishing 86” to 101” to 117” thanks to its unique butterfly extension design. In addition, the non-movable centre piece allows you to put an umbrella in, and doesn’t fold away when the table is not extended.
A Day Bed to While Away the Hours
Nothing says luxury like a daybed. The epitome of leisure, a day bed is an ideal multi use luxury furniture piece that can help a room perform multiple functions. Great in small spaces, day beds can be used as a sofa when transformed with a few throw pillows, or as a guest bed as well, making them the ideal addition to a spare bedroom. You can even have one as a focus piece of a room and create a simply dreamy spot for an afternoon siesta.
Whether it’s by the pool, on a patio or part of a carefully placed seating arrangement on a veranda, a sleek and stylish outdoor daybed is a versatile piece of furniture which will work in so many areas of your home. Offering a comfortable place to sit alongside its power as a stunning showpiece, the classic daybed can transform your space into one of pure luxury by creating an area that allows you to truly rest and relax in style at home.
At Design Warehouse, we have an amazing array of stunning outdoor daybeds, all offering different moods, silhouettes and materials for you to be able to customise your outdoor living area in the style you see fit. Whether you’re curating a large deep seating area, or need a simple, chic piece to make the most of your layout, we’re sure we can find the right welcoming daybed for you.
An Outdoor Coffee Table that Endures
The modern coffee table is an essential for outdoor living, whatever your chosen aesthetic. At Design Warehouse we offer a range of styles, from rustic styles to the perfect round coffee table. Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect organic style to complement your reclaimed teak deep seating set, or after a modern, minimalist flavour to bring into your wicker setting, we have everything you need in store, online and available to send to you, anywhere in the country.
