10 Must-Have Furniture Staples

When giving design advice to friends/family/clients, I always suggest purchasing neutrals as the base items. They last for years and never go out of style. I especially love how you can swap out the accessories for super cheap. If you get bored with your current living room, wouldn't you rather buy new pillows each year instead of a new couch?

Today I'm sharing my 10 affordable furniture staples that every home needs. I'm also offering a SECOND list of my top picks on my personal blog, The Blissful Bee. Make sure to check it out here.
