Carrie Bradshaw famously said: "I like my money right where I can see it—hanging in my closet." While some of us tend to lean on the side of sound investments like stocks or real estate, it can be tempting to want to splurge on a Hermès or Chanel bag after getting a nice little bonus at work, on an important birthday, or simply to reward ourselves for a job well done. After all, experts suggest that it might not be such a crazy investment: The Hermès Birkin, for instance, is forecasted to double in value in the next 10 years.

What if we wanted to put our money in our homes instead of our closets? People have made small fortunes by investing in up-and-coming artists—snatching early Andy Warhol pieces for as little as $500—but what if the same could be done with furniture? To investigate the matter, we chatted with Cristina Miller, head of North American dealer relations at 1stdibs—an online marketplace for antique and modern furniture, art, and fashion. Ahead she gave us the lowdown on the hottest up-and-coming furniture designers and the trending classics that are most likely to increase in value in coming years. Next time you feel like throwing a casual $5000 on a bag, consider these iconic furniture pieces instead.
