Basics

Complete your home with accessories and furniture essentials

Home Decorators Collection


 
Whether you're starting over or starting from scratch, it can be a daunting task to determine everything you need to create a stylish, livable home. This is especially true if you don't have a particular decorating style in mind. No worries! With all the essentials from basic home furniture to solid-color linens, we make it easy for you to find everything you need to create a wonderful home.

First, start with a simple foundation. Decorating with our neutral colors and starter furniture is the easiest way to create a stylish look while planning for future design trends. White, espresso and natural wood finishes help basic furniture pieces of any style blend in. If your look is already established and you just need a few pieces - a little extra seating here, a new lamp there - the basics are simple to add in.

Next, think about function. An important furniture essential for every room is ample storage. If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, make sure it's well stocked with organizational tools like baker's racks and decorative bins. Add beautiful baskets and shelves to family rooms and dens to keep clutter contained. Make hallways or mudrooms function with wall hooks and coat trees. And if you're into crafts, create a workspace with our Martha Stewart Living™ collection of lovely and functional craft furniture, cubbies and more.

Last but not least, think about your lifestyle. Determining what kind of basic home furniture you need depends on who you are. If you're an empty-nester, this may be a great time to indulge your craving for exquisite decor, plush rugs and luxurious fabrics. If you love entertaining, furniture essentials for you could be wine storage, butler trays and extra seating options like poufs and ottomans.

No matter who you are, the secret to designing a stylish, functional home is easy. Start with the furniture essentials and you can't go wrong!
