5 home furniture pieces that will last a lifetime

A comfortable bed

It’s no exaggeration to say that the right mattress can change your life. The average adult spends around one-third of their lives asleep, so it pays dividends to have a comfy place to rest. While the level of firmness is a matter of personal preference, a quality mattress should always feel supportive and breathable. The best test is how well rested you feel in the mornings.

Ergonomic seating

Working from home stopped being a novelty two years ago. Now, 78 per cent of Australian workers who can work remotely want to work hybrid or purely at home. More than half of us are also working outside our ‘standard’ hours at least once a week.

Given WFH is here to stay, it’s essential to have a proper set-up for your study or home office, and ergonomic seating is worth every cent.

When choosing an ergonomic chair, look for one with adjustable armrests, seat height and tilt. The backrest should offer good lumbar support and also have an adjustable height and tilt mechanism.

A modular storage system

Books, records, framed photographs, vases filled with flowers, small details like these are what makes a house a home. But they also need a surface on which to sit and to be arranged into whimsical vignettes.

That’s the romantic side to shelves and storage systems, but there’s also the very practical need for somewhere to put your stuff. Whether you opt for open shelving or prefer to tuck everything out of sight into consoles and cabinets, having a system that suits the needs of your home is well worth the investment.

These pieces can often be big, so consider how different styles will fit with other pieces in your home. A modular option can be a smart choice as it can be expanded or reconfigured as your storage needs change.
