How to Style Timeless Furniture in the Home

Discover timeless furniture pieces and decorating tips that won’t go out of style with Larry O'Keeffe Furniture.

The Chesterfield Sofa - In need of a contemporary update?

Known for its classic design, the Chesterfield sofa fits right into both contemporary and traditional homes alike. Ensure you select a light colour like beige or light grey to highlight the sofa’s timeless features such as its elegant scroll arms and chic button-back details.

Chesterfield Moselle Three Seat Sofas

Another tip to give the Chesterfield sofa a contemporary update is by choosing a material such as velvet or leather. Contrast the sofa with accessories such as stylish cushions, a textured rugs or a sleek metallic coffee or side table.

Grounding the room neutrally

It’s best to match up your furniture with neutral colours to keep the look understated and elegant. Try to introduce a stylish grey fabric bed with cream walls as the backdrop in the bedroom. Accessorise with black accents and abstract artwork as a contrast to create a chic, layered look.

Meanwhile in the dining room, maybe try a timeless wooden dining table. Choose grey or dark wood to bring out any classic details such as an ornate pedestal or a country-style table top. Keep it classic with a white wall panelling backdrop for a sophisticated feel.

Create an inviting space in the dining area with a round wooden table.

Docklands Round Dining Set

Maybe you're more into the contemporary look, choose a round glass and oak dining table to maintain that timeless feel. Look for a unique pedestal to make a stylish statement. A perfect fit for smaller homes or apartments, pair your round dining table with chic velvet chairs.


Bring timeless style with a trestle dining set.

A mainstay of farmhouse style, trestle dining tables ground the room with their communal and spacious design. Choose a type of wood that complements your space – for instance, if you have light wood flooring, pick an oak dining set.

Ibsen Extending Dining Set

For a casual look, match wooden dining chairs or a bench for more seats. Let the natural wood grain details stand out by keeping the table bare.
