Timeless furniture for your living room

Keeping up with the trends for your living room decor can be tough, but thankfully there are pieces of furniture that are timeless, so you can be sure that your style will keep fresh for years to come.

Starting with one of the iconic designs we find the Chesterfield sofa, the first and most famous was the leather version.  Nowadays there are multiple versions with all of them keeping its distinctive deep buttoned backrest, turned wooden legs and rolled back and arms.

This version of the classic Chesterfield, designed in grey fabric, can be perfect to add class to your home. You can find it at Furniture Choice.


Another icon of the design is the Eames chair, as with the sofa, this chair has a lot of versions, especially low cost ones to make it affordable for everyone but all of them keeping the ‘Eames style’.

This style is a plastic chair designed in just one piece adapting itself to the body form, and having 4 wooden legs.

In terms of colours, white is the most common but due to its popularity you can find it in more colours than you can imagine.

It’s perfect not only for a living room, but also for other areas such as bedroom or kitchen.

We’ve selected this version from My Furniture in white with solid beech legs.


A living room needs a big table and there is nothing more timeless and with more durability than a wooden one. Wooden tables are resilient, strong, easy to clean and give a gorgeous natural look to the room.

You have a variety of choices based on the kind of wood, colour and leg material that you prefer, and you don’t have to worry about it because it always fits the space and your style whatever it is it (classic, modern, contemporary etc.).

We love this one with retro style, acacia wood and steel frame for the legs, it’s available at Cuckooland.


Light is key at home and especially in the living room, so if you want a timeless lamp, you should choose a flowerpot pendant based on the iconic one designed in steel by Verner Panton.

This lamp has stood the test of the time and gives a natural and traditional aura to the room, especially if you place a few of them from the ceiling above a big table – the result will be amazing.

We’ve selected this one, a reinvention of the classic with copper metal finish and will last throughout the years. It’s available at Houseology.


If there is something that can’t be missed in your living room it’s a bookcase. If you want one that will last you should go for a metallic one since it’s functional, durable and stylish.

The main advantage of using it, is that it fits with all styles of living rooms from a classic to modern and allows you to place all your stuff based on your needs.

This metal shelving unit with gloss enamel finish in pink and orange could be the perfect option. Also its irregular shelves allow you to store and display your belongings without compromising on a clean-lined look. You can find it at Oliver Bonas.
