If you’re just starting to decorate your space but have no idea what to prioritize, this article is for you! We’ve turned to designers to tell us the essential home decor pieces that are timeless and you should definitely invest in.
01. A Dining Table
“Dining tables hold many memories of family and friends sharing chats and good times. It’s good to be able to pass it down the line. If you pick wisely, even the wear and tear that comes over time add to its beauty.” —Lucy Gleeson, Lucy Gleeson Interiors
02. Stylish (and Functional) Accents
“When investing in home décor, I tend to ask myself one question: “Will this be of use to me when it’s not being displayed?” A coffee table book collection, a cashmere throw, or a set of crystal glasses, for example, are all items that provide both style and functionality.” —Kate DeWitt, Kate DeWitt Design
03. Pieces With Meaning
“A home is only timeless if its occupants continue to feel connected to it. For me, that means including something like a Biedermeier piece, which plays nicely in many contexts, from modern to Gustavian designs. I’d also focus on timeless forms. For example, a Bentwood chair might have different finishes or upholstery selections, but the shape is classic. The same goes for mid-century modern pieces like a womb chair or a Platner. They’re iconic, almost like the ‘cool kids’ that add automatic chicness and relevance to any room. I have my grandmother’s Knoll pieces that used to live in her super modern house, but they work just as well in my 1926 pre-war home.” —Zoe Feldman, Zoe Feldman Design
04. An Area Rug
“An area rug is the foundation for a room’s design. In many cases, I select the rug first and then build the room from there. I love a good vintage Moroccan rug and find them to be versatile with a variety of styles. If you’re on a budget, investing in a smaller vintage rug and layering it on top of a larger sisal rug is always a timeless look.” —Elyse Petrella, Elyse Petrella Interiors
“In my opinion, art is the most timeless décor piece I advise my clients to invest in. It’s so personal, and truly is ‘in the eye of the beholder.’ I teach my clients the importance of buying art that speaks to them, not necessarily what’s trending. Art speaks to our personalities and literally gives character to differentiate a space, giving each space it occupies a true soul. Over the years, it can be easily transferred and stand the test of time by being re-framed to keep up with your ever-evolving styles or move from space to space.” —Jade McNeil, Jade McNeil Interiors
