Nothing quite matches the thrill of placing out the welcome mat to your first home. If that’s on your to-do list this Fall, now’s the time to make a checklist and get shopping for what you need to properly furnish your new place. Sofa, dining table and bed. Duh. They’re a given. But so are other furnishings that combine fashion with multi-function. That’s what makes these pieces of furniture first home essentials everyone needs.
With sawhorse legs up to there, the Studio 7H Stiegs Writing Desk is more than a desk. This is an updated Scandinavian take on an iconic design element and is sized to serve as a sofa or buffet table. And with so many built-in storage spots, keeping tidy is a cinch wherever Stiegs goes.
Not only does the Hill Country Ozark bed bench provide an additional place to sit, it’s provides a ideal place to display blankets and throws while keeping them within arm’s reach for chilly Fall nights.
Aptly named, the Transcend bookcase rises above expectations. Made of solid Acacia wood harvested responsibly (one tree planted for each tree cut), it is as artful as it is purposeful with an organic, contemporary silhouette distinguished by butterfly joinery on live edge drawer doors and drawers.
With the Walker exposed wood chair Cynthia Rowley delivers lots of wow in fashion diva style. First, she makes Walker the ultimate accent piece by sizing it right for any room in the house (from living room to bedroom to home office). Then she dresses it in a trendy tie-dye plaid fabric called ‘Java.”
By including a sleek half top-shelf on the Elixir leg nightstand,Hooker designers deftly solve two problems faced by homeowners everywhere—how to elevate lighting to proper reading height and free up space on the table. A roomy drawer and lower shelf make this into a compact storage piece as well.
With Mid-Century Modern finesse, the Studio 7H LP record player/gaming entertainment console gives clutter a cool spin by corraling electronic equipment and gadgets in one hip place. Outfitted with cubbies for a turntable, speakers, albums (since vinyl is back with a vengeance) and more, there are also sensible cutouts designed to keep cords out of sight, out of mind.
