If you have been rattling your brain thinking how to  make your home stand out, you really don’t have to shell out big bucks by completely revamping your home. You can leave the frills out and let one statement piece furniture do the talking.

From eclectic chairs to grand tables and quaint lamps, unleash your imagin-ation to deck up your home. “Work a theme around a bold, attention-grabbing piece of furniture, keeping the rest of the decor muted to avoid a clashing look,” says Priya Kakkar, interior designer. We put together some statement pieces for you to choose from.

If cashing in on grand statement pieces is not your cup of tea, you can also DIY a striking piece of furniture. Invest your time and creative energies to create a quirky statement  table for your dining room. All you need is a table, some strong adhesive and plenty of soda or soft-drink bottle caps to get started. Draw a pattern on the table with chalk, then paste the caps on it. The more colourful and eclectic the caps and the design respectively, the quirkier your table will be!
