Discover Your Style
Not your grandmother’s design aesthetic! Today’s traditional design feels current, yet pays homage to Old World elements. Traditional design can lean formal, or can embrace casual country looks. The furniture is comfortable and inviting, while the design details include balanced symmetry, mixed patterns, and prints with restrained scale. Together, these traditional elements create a home of timeless elegance.
Key Traditional Style Elements:
- Tufted upholstery and furnishings with rolled arms
- Antiques, either original or refinished for an updated look
- Rich, darker woods
- A mix of patterns and florals
- Design and accessorize in pairs to emphasize symmetry
The best of both worlds. Transitional design bridges the formality of Traditional and the sleek sophistication of Modern. It is a fresh interpretation of the classics, with clean-lined furnishings and streamlined touches. This approach creates contemporary spaces that, at the same time, feel totally timeless.
Key Transitional Style Elements:
- Comfortable furnishings with clean-lined silhouettes
- Neutral color palettes
- Less pattern, more texture
- Combining sleek accessories with antiques and vintage finds
- Maximum natural light
This is design decluttered. Modern design is clean and crisp, every chance it gets. Furnishings can have straight, confident lines or a flowing amorphous shape — or combine the two to create your own modern-eclectic look. This design style is often based in a monochromatic color palette, which is then easily popped with accent color and accessorized with large-scale art and sculptural accessories.
Key Modern Style Elements:
- Furnishings with straight lines or artful, amorphous shapes
- Uncluttered surfaces
- Monochromatic color palettes with pops of color
- Sculptural, well-appointed accessories
- Metallic and Mid-century Modern elements
The Industrial Age comes home! This style was born from rugged urban influences: well-worn warehouses, 1800s machine-centric factories, and open loft living. In Urban Industrial design, unfinished and reclaimed wood is a key element, with exposed mechanicals and repurposed pieces playing strong supporting roles. This easily identifiable look can be used in tandem with other styles, and a few well-chosen pieces — one table, a set of chairs, a reclaimed light fixture — will do the trick.
Key Urban Industrial Style Elements:
- Exposed mechanicals as a design element
- Found objects repurposed as furniture
- Wrought iron and rustic, patinated metallics
- Less pattern, more texture
- Open, loft-inspired floor plans
