6 Essential Furniture Pieces for a Condo Starter Home

Moving into your family's first high-rise home, whether it is your own or a rented unit, is looked forward to with delight. After all, it's going to be a shared space where plenty of precious family memories will be held.

It is just about fitting to fill your condo with carefully chosen furniture pieces that suit your taste and lifestyle, as well as your space requirements. Not quite sure where to start? Here are six pieces for every part of the home that are winners on all three counts:

1. Karlstad Sofa

Available in two- and three-seater sizes, the Karlstad Sofa (shown in above photo with Malmo Center Table) is a picture of coziness and timeless sophistication in one nifty package. The tufting and subdued color (dark blue, light or dark grey, or cream) would work well together in bringing flair to your living area without screaming for attention. Try adding a grouping of throw pillows in a variety of sizes to add extra punch, but really, this roomy sofa looks good enough as it is.


2. Malmo Center Table

While the sofa is usually the focal point of a living area, the center table is equally important. It can be both functional and decorative, especially if it's like the Malmo Center Table (shown in above photo with Karlstad Sofa). This table works well in small spaces because of its spacious, streamlined surface and its skinny legs—a combination that makes an area visually light. Limit only a few favorite and essential things on the table to keep it clutter-free.


3. Stockholm Sofabed

Seamless and spacious without being bulky, the Stockholm Sofabed with matching ottoman is made for lounging with a drink or a book, chatting with family members or guests, or luxurious napping. Its comfortable material and shape would make it hard for you to leave once you take a seat. Its neutral color makes it a breeze to style and work with other furniture pieces, too!


4. Pavel Dining for Two

This dining tandem looks every inch a classic pair, and fits just right in a niche. It would work well as a breakfast nook for a couple or a dining spot for merienda with your kid after he or she comes home from school. Dress it up with a vase of fresh flowers or a storied keepsake from a family trip.


5. Dalton Center Table

Another great table option for the living room is the Dalton Center Table that looks sleek in its high-gloss white body (also available in dark walnut) and steel tubular legs. Plus, a secret storage is revealed once you lift the top—a discreet add-on that's valuable in compact spaces.


6. Vacker Writing Desk

Design enthusiasts adore the Scandinavian style of furniture for its simple yet sculptural forms that are always stylish in a subtle way. This aesthetic is present in the Vacker Writing Desk with its classic walnut finish and tapered legs. Though compact, it has nooks and crannies for storing stationery and writing supplies. Who says a small home doesn't have a room for a tiny study or home office?


Other than the three things shoppers look for in furniture, the price tag is also important. Good thing the abovementioned items are all value for money.

What's even better, the first three furniture pieces (Karlstad Sofa, Malmo Center Table, and Stockholm Sofabed with Ottoman) are all included in the BLIMS Mid-Year Sale that lets you enjoy up to 40% off on selected Condo Fit Furniture.
