It’s a cliché, but a house really isn’t a home until you give it your own personal touch. Be it furniture, decorative items or the things we hoard over the years, it really is the ‘stuff’ that we bring to a house that instils a sense of personality and makes it unique. The furniture in our homes often has a story behind it, be it the handy-down sofa or the wardrobe from flat-pack hell.
Furniture is beyond functional, it’s for comfort, it adds character. Whether you’re looking to fill a room or just lurking on the Gram, we’ve put together a list of our favourite accounts from the affordable to the aspirational:
