When investing in key pieces of furniture for your home, you want to make sure they’re not something you’ll get tired of in six months. Yet you still want to bring something exciting into your room. The Houseology collection ticks both boxes – unfussy pieces with a design edge. Add in quality materials like reclaimed wood and hardwearing metals, and we’re completely sold. From lamps to tables, we’ve made a list of our favourite picks.

 

Houseology collection

Line up 

We’re obsessed with parquet floors at the moment, but if you don’t have the determination (or the budget) to commit to a floor revamp, this coffee table is the perfect way to get your fix. The effect is created by staining solid fir in different shades, then assembling them using traditional parquetry techniques. Joy coffee table, €337.75.

Serve in style

With summer fast approaching, you’ll want to make sure your cocktail making arsenal is well stocked and ready to go. Display it stylishly with this Art Deco inspired trolley, with its eye-catching brass curves and marble shelves. Ethan fixed drinks trolley, €450.71.

Standing Tall 

The calm simplicity of this floor lamp will sit well in any room. Made from solid natural pine, it’s definitely a modern classic. Eiffel floor lamp, €281.27.

Statement shelving 

Whether it’s a collection you’ve been adding to for years or a select few favourite pieces, display your most treasured finds on this unit for a guaranteed focal point. Reclaimed oak shelves combined with iron supports create interesting shapes and levels to make the most of what’s on show. Maddox industrial double display unit, €1,354.39.

Delightful dining 

Reclaimed teak gives real character to this chunky dining table. It’s perfect for everything from weeknight suppers to dinner parties with friends. Suri dining table, €337.75.

Taking sides

This sideboard will bring a rustic mood to a room, with its combination of iron and fir wood bringing warmth, but with a cool, industrial edge. Glass doors and open shelves are great for trinkets you want to show off, while the drawers are perfect for the less aesthetically pleasing ‘stuff’ that needs a home. Damian sideboard, €654.04.
