How To Choose A Furniture Store To Suit You
From Mosman to Merrylands and everywhere in between, depending on where you live in Sydney can influence popular furniture choices in your area. What you buy will depend on where you’re at in life and whether you’re shopping with convenience, style or budget as your top priority – or perhaps it’s a mix of all three?
Functional and beautiful furniture can range from cheap flat-pack storage to high-end investment pieces to last a lifetime.
Top Furniture Styles
Sydney boasts mountains, rivers, beaches and the big smoke, so homeowners are spoiled for decorating choices to suit their environment. A home by the beach may inspire a Hamptons decorating style, whilst a cottage in the mountains or southern highlands may lend itself to a cosier, more classic style of décor.
Whilst it’s wise to invest in furniture to suit your own personal taste, there are a handful of furniture styles to consider, understand and keep in mind (as you slide down a rabbit hole in a Gumtree search!) to help you curate a selection of furniture that will be perfectly arranged together in your home.
It’s easy to get sidetracked once you’re inside a furniture showroom or get seduced by furniture sales flashing up on your screen. Any research you do ahead of hitting the high streets and supercentres will help you stick to your budget and overall decorating plan. Making decisions and creating a shortlist before you head out or online is important to keep you on track. Setting out a clear list of what you’re looking for and how much you mean to spend will also help you decide where to buy the furniture you’re looking for.

Checkout one of their three trendy furniture stores in Sydney today.
In-store or in the client’s own home, professional designers use the brand’s wide range of stunning colours and materials to provide personalised advice and designs. Although their field of expertise is furniture and design, their ultimate focus is on helping people achieve their dream homes.

“Touch wood” is perhaps the literal inspir
ation behind the design aesthetic of Great Dane furniture. The brand has capitalised on the earthy material for their pieces, reworking wood for a truly idiosyncratic look of their products. The aesthetic is reminiscent of rustic, western times, considering the brand’s decided love of cowhides.

Perfect for the minimalist home, Great Danes pieces are streamlined and durable. Our favoured pick is the ND 83 armchair in the lime green fabric, perfect for injecting humble white rooms with a great dose of colour.
