New World Furniture Guide: Leveling, Placement, Furnishing Tips & Tricks
There’s no place like home, even in a game where you’re always on the move like New world. Once you become an honest citizen within a territory, you can buy a house for as little as 2,500 coins, if you have at least a level 10 territory with that city.
After you buy your house, you will notice how empty it can be with no furniture or furniture to fill it up. Over time, you can slowly collect and craft items to place in your home, turning it from empty to welcoming.
Acquire furniture in New world
As you explore the world and complete quests, you will get different pieces of furniture from various sources. This can include tables, chairs, rugs, and even pets. To access them while you furnish your house, make sure they are either in your personal inventory or in the storage shed of the colony where your house is located.
You will also get furniture blueprints which when consumed will add the furniture recipe to your knowledge base just like the cooking recipes. To access these recipes, go to your local Workshop.
Making furniture in the New World
Furniture making is its own business skill called Home Furnishings. Furniture can be crafted with the Furnishings skill in the Workshop. Even with zero levels in your Furniture skill, you can still craft plenty of ash items like chairs, shelves, desks, beds, tables, and other decorations. For most furniture, you will need a combination of wood, iron, and fabric. If you are following other business skills, you should have a steady supply of them.
You’ll also need Ash Stain to craft a lot of starter furniture. This can be done in the workshop with charcoal and weak solvent. Sometimes you will also need specific dyes that can be made at the baking station.
There are few things you make with furniture that offer more than just decoration. Storage chests allow you to store additional items in your home, effectively increasing your storage space in a specific settlement. At furnishing level 75, you can also craft trophies to hang on your wall, giving you various combat, crafting, or collecting bonuses. Basic trophies require lumber, steel ingots, maple dye, and a collection of specific motes.
