Ever see a gorgeous or unusual piece of furniture, admire it, but then shake away the notion you could have something like that yourself? Most people feel they have a hard time choosing new pieces of furniture in general, especially ones outside their comfort zone. A statement piece is the perfect way to get something different in your home without committing to an entire room of a style you might regret.

How do you choose something? Go with your gut: That usually is your truest choice. And because it’s just one piece, is easier to commit. A statement piece should be unique in that it can stand on its own, tell a story, and breathe new life into the current space. If you’re on the fence, go for it and admire your courage when you smile every time you pass it.
