RULE 2.

Choose pieces that age well.

Chances are, you will still have them in ten years time, so choose some­thing that will fit in with your life­style then. While it may seem like a good idea to splash out on some­thing that de­fines your iden­tity now, you might be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent then. Re­mem­ber to also choose good qual­ity for the things you want to last well too. It's worth splash­ing out on a good sofa and mat­tress. By splash out, we mean pa­tiently hunt down the best sale.

For style longevity, you can al­ways trust the pe­riod fur­ni­ture. Think tra­di­tion pe­riod style such as the clas­sic Louis VI chairs, these won't date. The Philippe Starck ghost chairs are a great ex­am­ple of this. Mid cen­tury is also a beau­ti­ful ex­am­ple that tran­scends time, just think of the show Mad Men
