It’s not es­sen­tial to spend a for­tune, but when it comes to fur­ni­ture, the old say­ing, ‘you get what you pay for’ rings true. If you’re pre­pared to com­mit for years to come, ex­pect to pay for a higher stan­dard of de­sign and ma­te­ri­als. “Chairs make the per­fect heir­loom pieces so don’t be afraid to spend a lit­tle ex­tra,” says Chris­tine Found. Opt for a clas­sic shape and bear in mind that a high-cal­i­bre piece can al­ways be re-cov­ered down the track to suit your chang­ing decor, at a much lower cost than re­plac­ing it.
