Classic Furniture That Will Always Hold Its Value

In every category there are true classics time will not defeat with changing trends, or fads. In a very design oriented market such as home furnishings, only the great designs will make the cut generation after generation.

If you were to ask someone shopping for furniture who is Ludwig Mies van der Rohe or Charles Eames, they would probably have little or no idea. Only after having seen their timeless creations would it be obvious that these great visionaries combined excellent quality with superb design.

The Barcelona Chair


eMod - Mies Barcelona Chair Reproduction Replica Style Italian Leather Black


The 1920’s spawned a multitude of designers, whose work is still much sought after including the Barcelona chair, the Le Corbusier chaise lounge and Eero Saarinen‘s collection of tables.

I love the look of a classic modern piece in just about any environment, and most of the styles are simplistic enough to be a perfect compliment without dominating the theme of the room.

Rosevera Teofila Tufted Chaise Lounge

The most popular chaise lounge in the 2020s is the model below which looks very comfortable and is a stunning design. However if you decide you want to sell your chaise lounge after a number of years a good replica would be a better choice or of course an original.

Isamu Noguchi Rounded Coffee Table

One of my personal favorites is Isamu Noguchi’s rounded triangle coffee table. Designed in the 1940’s it looks great with even the latest modern sofa designs.

As with anything, you get what you pay for. The originals and the current productions by the licensed manufacturers will cost you and you will be lucky to find one available anywhere at a reasonable price.

It is important to realise that long after your other furniture has worn out or become outdated, the true classics will not only be around, but still in style.

I talk with consumers all the time that brag about the Eames chair they have had for 40 years, or the Marcel Breuer black and chrome club chair that looks as good today as it did in 1925.

Careful when shopping for these timeless beauties as there are lots of reproductions. The price is often enough to entice the consumer but know you are not getting the real deal and often the materials and the construction have been compromised.

I have visited some resale stores specialising in the old classics and they hold their value, but this may be an alternative to buying new if the cost is prohibitive. One company specialising in a complete collection of the classics is Alivar Museum.

They consider the entire line to be a true “part of the history of furniture design” and “everlasting”. I have seen some of their items in person and can vouch for the quality. No matter which way you go, enjoy your furniture and make the design an extension of your personality!
