Thankfully, there are certain furnishings that stand the test of time. These timeless pieces exude quality and durability, and can be used to complement existing furnishings or be centralised to become the focal point of any room.

Crystal chandeliers have been used in homes as a statement piece for years and have remained a popular design choice throughout time – whether the property is trying to be the depiction of opulence, the epitome of style or simply highlight French or Italian influences.
