5 Furniture Pieces You Should Take With You When You Move

As an interior stylist, I get to work with clients moving out, moving in, or just wanting a change to their home environment. Many times, clients are not sure which furniture pieces should make the transition to a new home. Whether you are downsizing, upsizing or even furniture shopping,  these 5 furniture classics can be used in just about any room and for multiple purposes - and I’ll tell you why.

#1 The Drop Leaf Table. If you have been lucky enough to have inherited one, keep it in your grip, and pass it down to our favorite person. A drop-leaf table is a table that has a fixed section in the center and hinged sections (leaf) on either side that can be folded down. Perfect for any space, it can serve in a foyer or behind a sofa. It's the perfect dinette table tucked into a niche with one side down or it can be fully extended to host a evening dinner. If you don’t like the finish, paint it.

#2 . Parson Chairs. Today's chairs are inspired by a 1930’s designer at Parsons School of design in Paris. Usually upholstered, these classic, all-purpose chairs can be used in a dining room as side or head chairs, moved to a living room for extra seating, sit solo in a foyer or bedroom, and can be reupholstered in infinite ways - skirted, unskirted, slipcovered, etc.

#3. Parsons Tables. These beautiful, clean lined, modern tables can serve as dining, console, cocktail or side tables. It’s perfect, simple design, (also created at the Parsons School of design in Paris) can slip, seamlessly into any style or home environment.

#4 The Wingback Chair. Back in the no central heating days, they were used to warm yourself by the fire and the ‘winged’ back kept away the drafts by embracing you within the chair. Today they come in a variety of styles, materials and shapes, but always in that classic shape. A wingback chair can adjust to any room from dining to master, in singles or pairs.

#5 A Trunk. Every ancestor had them in their homes. They moved with them, holding what they most treasured. The trunk is a symbol of the concept of moving. Instant conversation makers, whether new or old, because of what they stand for - trunks are always a furniture focal point. They can be used for storage at the end of bed, as a table in a living space, in a mudroom or back entrance. Trunks can be refreshed with paint, taller by adding 4 legs, and protected with a glass top. You should move with yours as well.
