Graceful curves, elaborately carved accents and ornately detailed fabric patterns are the hallmarks of traditional furniture design. Traditionally styled furniture, sometimes referred to as “Antique style” or Classical Style consists of victorian era, Georgian, French provincial, neoclassical, Queen Anne, Rococo, renaissance, Louis Philippe and Chippendale, to name a few. Some of the features commonly inherent in traditional furniture are floral motifs, ornamental finials and acanthus leaf appliques, cabriole legs, ball and claw or lion’s paw feet. Graciously scaled pieces are constructed from heavy, densely grained wood often accented by burled bookmatched veneers with rich deep finishes and antique bronze or gold patina bail handle hardware. Distressed finishes are commonly used to add character and provide an aged look.

Transitionally styled furniture places focus on comfort and practicality making it ideal for active households. Warm, dark wood tones are common, but can range from natural to a reclaimed or distressed finish. Variations of materials and textures like linen fabrics and leather combine with style attributes such as button tufting, rolled arms, nailhead accents, recycled or repurposed items and materials.

Focus on minimalistic design with an urban appeal featuring clean, straight lines, bold, solid colors and the use of materials such as glass and chrome plated metals define contemporary style. Avoidance of ornamental elements or detailed decorative patterns is inherent in the design of contemporary furniture. From the space-age look of ultra modern to mid-century modern, art deco and retro designs, contemporary styled furniture is ideal for urban apartments, lofts and other small spaces. The maximization of space can make a room look larger than it actually is.
