The sturdy construction is designed to last for years ahead with strong performance. This furniture can roll with the punches and come out looking fabulous. Proof that strong is beautiful.


If you’re looking for a den or living room sofa that is durable and decorative, look for a sofa that has wooden legs and a steel frame. These come in vibrant colors that span the color wheel, so you have lots of options. There are also retro rounded sectional sofas that provide lots of seating all in one place. Friends can chill out in total comfort. Hang some abstract wall art over the sofa or sectional. This creates a very hospitable seating area for long conversations with friends. Artwork adds some pizzazz to the room whether it’s a contemporary painting, rustic canvas print or authentic real life portrait.


Side tables fit well beside a chair or sofa. Metallic and marble side tables are stunning and sturdy. They are convenient for resting a cup of coffee or a magazine. A metallic banded vase or a couple of funky Scandinavian vases would be super accessories on these side tables. Place dried corkscrew willow or lavender in the vases to add height. Dried arrangements last forever and are no maintenance. If you prefer, put fresh flowers in the vases with water and replace as needed.


The brass and concrete console is so retro and ideal for narrow hallways or tucked behind a sofa. Use a console to display framed photographs or artwork. Group the frames together with similar colors like all silver, all black or all brass. Mix and match for a more eclectic look. Vary the sizes for depth and interest. You can even frame leaves, shells or other pieces of nature for a splash of Mother Earth.


Outfit a bedroom with furniture that will last too. We have some awesome headboards at west elm including a low or tall leather grid-tufted style or a diamond tufted headboard with a performance velvet fabric covering. You’ll feel like royalty sleeping in one of these beds. A shimmery chandelier over the bed can turn your room into a castle’s bed chamber. Globe or crystal lights are stunning, as well as the sunburst type of chandelier. Consider adding a dimmer switch to control the amount of light you want.


Place a midcentury nightstand by your bed. Two drawers give you storage options for your reading glasses, flash drives and other bedtime essentials. Use a table lamp on the nightstand to aid with nighttime reading and computer work. Choose from brass and ceramic ginger jar lamps or shabby chic arc and pedestal lamps. Lamps are necessary for providing light, but they also make great decorative accessories. Step out of the box for something extraordinary.


Keep a high back chair or wide base chair in your bedroom for catching up on phone calls before bed or perusing a national newspaper. This is a great way to wind down before bed in the comfort of your room. A woven basket or wire bin can be situated by the bedroom chair as a catchall for reading materials. Store newspapers and journals, crossword puzzles and sudokus here for quick reference when you want to wind down. Baskets and bins keep items tucked out of the way for a neat and organized setting.


Organization creates a sense of calm, which is always good in the bedroom or really any room.
