Furniture is an expression of individual taste in the interior décor. It’s no surprise that the furniture you prefer changes with age. There is nothing like a perfect piece of furniture which you will not want to change ever, and mark my words, when it comes to furniture, ‘change is the only constant.’ However, there are some furniture pieces that every home should have. The design may vary, but the name or purpose remains the same. Here, we have curated a few must-have furniture pieces crafted by our professional interior designers to fuel your imagination.

Borrow, buy or exchange, but make sure you keep at least one antique piece of furniture in your home. It could be from your Grandmother’s collection or purchased from an antique store. With each passing year, its importance will grow, and it will become a precious piece to decorate your home.

Traditional, modern, or contemporary, the casual, soft, comfortable, and versatile pouffe can easily slip into becoming a part of the permanent arrangement.

A personal table and chair for two could create a romantic getaway, a recharging spot, or a reclusive station for some alone time. Place it in the kitchen, or make it a dining table for two, convert it into a coffee table in the bedroom or balcony, or even a cute little study for the toddler, choose the role you would like the table with two chairs to play.

A bed is considered a piece of essential furniture, and a high-quality, functional bed will serve you for years.

A nightstand on the side of the bed enhances the bedroom's décor and is a practical piece of furniture where you can keep a phone, water, books, lamp, etc. for convenience.
