Top 10 Best Furniture Pieces For Apartments


Furnishing an apartment can be a challenge, especially if you are moving from a traditional home. It is important to get the balance right between functionality and space, ensuring you have comfortable places to entertain, relax or store your favourite items without overcrowding your home.

Here is a list of our favourite 10 items that are perfect for modern apartment living.

1. Nook bed by Jardan

We love this simple upholstered bed by perennial favourite Jardan. With it's clean modern lines and elegant timber legs, it appears to almost hover off the floor and makes the space seem bigger. We love it tucked in with soft linen sheets in contrasting colours.

2. Phoenix Butler Table by Jardan

This flexible little guy can be used as the perfect bedside table for small bedrooms or can work equally as well as a side table in your lounge, particularly if you do not have the space for a large traditional coffee table. It's slim profile lines help to keep the room open and it comes in a range of powdercoated colours or brushed metal finishes.

3. Andy Sofa by Jardan     

Beautifully detailed this upholstered three-seat sofa from Jardan ticks all the boxes. With a graphic quilting and slender frame, Andy has a relaxed elegance. Softened with feather down and memory foam cushions, Andy gently shapes to the form of the body.

4. DINING TABLE by Domayne

Often the lines between lounge, dining and kitchen can be blurred in modern day apartments. This style of "open plan" design allows greater access to light and views throughout the apartment. This simple yet unique, round glass dining table is easy to clean and maintain. It will complement the open plan design intentions, whilst providing a flexible seating space for 2, 3, 4 or even 5 at a stretch.

5. DINING CHAIRS by Domayne

An upholstered chair is a more comfortable solution for residential, especially for occasions when you are seated for an hour or more such as dinner parties or studying. But an upholstered chair need not be high maintenance. These modern dining chairs come in highly durable and easy to clean fabrics, they are stackable and have a slim leg design to maximise space.

6. Rufus Armchair by Jardan

This beautiful occasional armchair creates a playful sense of home. With beautiful detailing and combining a combination of fabric or leather with timber, it is warm, comfortable and provides a great functional feature.  

7. Humla and Meta by Clickon Furniture

We love both of these oak coffee tables by Clickon Furniture and couldn't pick just one! The round double tiered Humla provides two table tops to display your favourite magazines or homewares. The sturdy and modenistic Meta design is great for those with a little more space in their living areas.

8. Leather Hide Rug by Freedom

Nothing says warmth like a leather hide rug, and this monochromatic example from Freedom is fun and durable and provides a soft, comfortable feeling underfoot when used on tile or timber flooring. The organic shape enhances a feeling of space in contrast to a square or rectangular design.


Make your apartment a reflection of you. Have some fun, add some green and personalise your home. We like to choose sculptural elements in groups of 2 or 3 to fill the space nicely. Look for interesting textures, geometric shapes, detailed vases and bowls.



We spend one third of our lives in bed, and we don't want to waste that time in anything but the softest and most comfortable bedding. A palette of earthy neutrals work well paired with soft colours in thick organic cotton or breezy linen.
