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.
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

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.
