From then to now...
When updating your home, if you select furnishings with classic lines, the result will be an enduring style that won't need to be re-done for years. I love to compare styles and see how they evolved over time. Three main styles are Traditional (Sheraton, the Louies, Tuscan, and similar), Modern (Eames, van der Rohe, Retro and the like) , and Transitional (elements from Traditional and Modern periods combined). Contemporary style simply refers to the current period. Can you mix these styles? A resounding yes! A change of fabrics, mixing colors, and adding the right accessories, will help shape the overall style.
Sofas: Traditional sofas have many forms. A rolled arm, skirted base, and tufting on the back, is common. For a more modern feel, strip away the details, square off the cushions and arms, and a modern style is born. The tapered legs and exposed wood apron are classic and allows this sofa to work well with traditional pieces.
