You don't need an interior designer to create a designer-looking home. With a few contemporary furniture pieces and statement home accessories, you can get the designer look for less. 

Update your home with these luxe-looking homeware items.

This art-deco inspired glass-topped geometric side table will warm up a room with its brass colour, and add a touch of glamour. Whether you make it a central feature of your living room or tuck it behind your sofa, you'll find it creates a sleek extra surface and makes a design statement in its own right. Complete the look with complimenting brass and copper metallic home accessories and geometric shapes.

2. Invest in a headboard

Make your bedroom feel like a swanky hotel room with a statement bed. A headboard instantly makes a bedroom look more sophisticated. Go for the bold and stylish black Antonio Scroll Bed for a contemporary feel, or for a more rustic and vintage look, the Ivory Rochelle Bed has an elegant carved white headboard.

3. Cool Chrome

Add some retro charm to your home with this chrome floor lamp. The large head can be angled to act as a spotlight, perfect when you need some extra light in a particular area, and the brushed chrome finish adds a contemporary twist.

Get the designer look for less with this modern marble side table (also pictured above). Not only is marble a big interiors trend this season, it's also timeless enough to mean that this side table won't date. The contemporary hexagonal design gives a sleek and polished edge to a space. Place it next to your sofa or use it to add a little extra storage space in your living room. It would also make a great stand for a vase in a hallway or bedroom.
