Certain materials, textures, shapes, colours, and styles were simply made to last the ages.

Earlier this year, we predicted that linen would be one of the biggest interior trends of 2018. Admittedly, linen is timeless. As in – people have been making clothing and other items out of linen for literally thousands of years!
So why have we loved linen for so long?
Linen is prized for its breathability and moisture wicking properties. It keeps you cool in the heat and draws moisture away from the body, which makes it perfect for clothing and bed linen, especially if you’re prone to sweating.
Linen fabric has a uniquely soft texture, an almost massage-like quality, and it only becomes softer with age. Plus, it’s hypoallergenic, anti-static, strong, and extremely easy to launder. Not to mention, it looks beautiful! The natural creases in the fabric give it a really relaxed look that’s perfect for coastal and boho interiors, yet it can also look luxurious – a linen tablecloth is great for formal dining settings and a pure French linen quilt cover exudes luxury.
There’s literally nothing linen can’t do, which is why it’s #1 on our list of things that will never go out of style.
A statement pendant
Lighting obviously serves a practical purpose in your home. You use lighting in your interiors to brighten up a space when it doesn’t get enough natural light, to create a mood (dimmer switches, anyone?), and—of course—to see better by! But your lighting can also add a little extra something to your interiors.
While the on-trend styles of pendant lights might change, the idea and function of a statement pendant light will never go out of style! Pendant lights create focal points, so they’re great for centring a space like a kitchen or dining room. They can also draw attention to certain parts of the room, such as where you might have wall art on display.
A wool rug
For warmth and softness underfoot, look no further than a pure wool rug. There is honestly so much to love about a wool rug, s Wool is a renewable natural resource, so it’s eco-friendly. It’s naturally flame, water, and stain-resistant, so it’s easy to care for and also has safety benefits. It has natural thermoregulatory properties—in other words, it breathes—meaning it’ll feel warm or cool underfoot depending on the temperature, so you can use it all year round.
Wool is so versatile and beautiful, how could it ever go out of style?
A classic armchair
Knowing you have a place at home that you can curl up and relax, maybe with a good book and a cup of tea, is a joy that everyone should experience! A classic armchair, like the Zanui Abel Armchair pictured above, provides this perfect place.
With its high back, vintage button tufted detailing, and modern colour options, the Abel Armchair makes a perfect addition to any reading nook, living room, or study corner. A comfy armchair like this is so versatile, it literally works anywhere. That’s why it makes this list!
