Over the years timeless furniture has come a long way. For years bedroom furniture and living room furniture were handcrafted with wood and natural materials that would last for years. Today, handcrafted furniture still exists but you will have to pay a premium for it. The rise of the do-it-yourself, self-assembled furniture craze has taken modern homes and made furniture affordable again. Whether you are looking to order custom made office furniture for your home office or you want to get the look of a classic couch in your living room without the price tag, take a look at these creative decorating ideas.
How to Decorate your Home with Timeless Furniture
Choose a piece of bedroom furniture that resonates with you
Timeless furniture is only as good as the value you place in it. For me an antique canopy bed from my grandmother’s home could hold personal and sentimental meaning. For your home a modern Le Corbusier dresser and matching furniture could be more your style. Don’t get swayed by just looking in design magazines and perusing design blogs. Let them inspire you to choose bedroom furniture you love and holds meaning to you and your loved ones. Southern Living has an interesting article for choosing furniture by the scale of your room.
Look to custom furniture for your home office needs
Your home office is the perfectly place to show off your design style but it still needs to be functional and practical. Custom home office furniture is good for those who have a work at home profession or spend a lot of time at a desk. Custom options for crafting, surfing the Internet, or organizing photographs will need customizable solutions. You can hire a furniture craftsman or artisan to create a furniture piece for you, or consider using a traditional armoire or buffet table and put custom file organizers inside. This option is more affordable and if you visit your local organization or office supplies store you may be surprised at the options!

Kids should have timeless furniture too!
The beauty of kids’ rooms is that they have no rules. Bunk beds that have unique configurations with matching futons are perfect for multi-age children who need to share a room. Bedroom furniture that fit a theme is common for kids furniture and should be a reflection of your child’s personality. A statement piece such as a bean bag chair, a dresser or even a rocking chair can bring a timeless appeal to your kids room, instantly.
