must have home furnishings

While moving can be stressful, it can also be fun! It’s all in how you look at it. For National Moving Month, we’re looking at the FUN side of moving—NEW furniture! However, this guide is helpful no matter what stage of “home” you’re in: buying a new home, moving into a rental or simply looking to refresh your space. Here’s a look at 10 of your must-have home furnishings for our friends in Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee!

#1 Sofa

We’re going to lead with the sofa because couch is king in most homes, wouldn’t you agree? It’s an essential piece of furniture for both lounging and entertaining. Movie nights, game days, afternoon naps, and rainy day reading are just a few of the many things that come to mind when talking sofa. 

From oversized sectionals to high-style loveseats, we’ve got sofas for every home style and size. We also have custom options available through the best makers in the upholstery industry. Worried about spills and stains? Choose performance fabric to protect your beloved sofa from the daily mess of kids, pets and clumsy adults. 

#2 Coffee Table

While a coffee table’s “essential-ness” is debatable, you can’t argue that they’re pretty handy. In addition to functionality, they pull the room together with their fabulous style. From chic marble top to rustic solid wood, our showroom floor is stocked with a wide selection of coffee tables. Pair with matching end tables for a cohesive look or mix-and-match for a more eclectic look.

#3 Bed

From master bedrooms to kids rooms to guest rooms, a comfortable place to retreat is a must in the home. The bedroom is where you begin and end each day so why not fall in love with your space?! We offer a fantastic selection of bedroom suites, including modern rustic, traditional and mid-century modern, all made with top-of-the-line materials for long-lasting quality and timeless good looks. 

#4 Mattress

If good sleep is essential to your health and wellbeing, then a great mattress is key! We only carry the best of the best American-made brands when it comes to top quality mattresses. Our makers include Stearns & Foster, Sealy and Southerland, who have all spent many decades mastering their craft so you can have the best night’s sleep possible.

#5 Desk

A desk is a must-have piece of furniture for your new home! Whether you’re working from home, catching up on emails or paying some bills, a designated workstation is a great way to be productive and keep all business-like clutter in one place. We have a great selection of stylish, sturdy, solid wood desks here at Head Springs Depot. These versatile pieces are perfect for you home office, living room, bedroom, rec room or wherever you prefer to work in your home!

#6 Dining Table and Chairs

From cozy, casual kitchens to luxe, formal dining rooms, a stylish place to dine is a must! We proudly carry a variety of sizes to fit your needs, including Amish-made, custom options from our Palettes by Winesburg. All of our dining sets are made with sustainably sourced solid wood to ensure your choice lasts your family years of delicious meals and cherished memories around the dinner table. Pair with our stylish range of dining chairs and benches for a look that is unique to your home style.

#7 Chests and Dressers

Back to the bedroom essentials: chests and dressers! While closets are great for hanging items, your folded garments (such as socks, undies, pajamas and t-shirts) also need a home. We have tons of gorgeous bedroom collections, whether you’re looking for a matching suite or standalone item.

#8 Accent Chairs

Accent chairs are essential when it comes to balancing the space, as well as an extra place to take a load off. They also have high aesthetic value, especially when it comes to adding pops of color or unique texture to your home. These occasional chairs come in all shapes, sizes and styles, and work well in any room—living room, bedroom, study and beyond!

#8 Nightstands and End Tables

Nightstands and end tables are the ultimate side pieces! These staple furnishings come in handy when it comes to storing bedside or couch-side necessities and knickknacks, such as remotes, books, eyeglasses and more! If you’re anything like us, it tends to become a catch-all station. We also love to top our nightstands and end tables with lamps and other decorative items, such as picture frames, vases, greenery and family heirlooms. 

#10 Miscellaneous Casegoods

Sideboards, vitrines, bookshelves, buffets, consoles, cabinets and beyond! Casegoods are perhaps the most adaptable home furnishing. These stylish storage pieces are essential to every room, depending on your personal needs. Lucky for you, we carry a vast assortment of casegoods in all shapes, sizes and styles!

BONUS: Lighting

Set the mood with unique lamps, chandeliers, sconces, pendants and more! A mix of accent and overhead lighting will enliven your space, as well as enhance relaxation and productivity. With accent lights, such as lamps and wall sconces, you can ensure your space is well-lit in all the right places. In addition to brightening up your space, light fixtures are also a wonderful way to show off your unique taste.
