Whether you lean toward traditional or modern design — or a combination of both — it’s always fun choosing furnishings and accessories to complete the look of your new home. There are so many design options to choose from, but anchoring the room with a timeless element, like a Barcelona chair or Chesterfield sofa, will set the bar and help the rest of the room come together. Here are some tips to incorporate furniture pieces that are trending today, but never go out of style.
Furniture styles tend to be cyclical, and we’re seeing a big trend now with mid-century modern pieces that were first popular in the 1950s. For example, classic Windsor chairs can be paired with a round marble table for an updated, eclectic look.
Another oldie but goodie is the Chesterfield sofa, which bridges the gap between traditional and modern. The frame of the sofa has clean, modern lines but the leather and tufted buttons give it a traditional look. If you already own a Chesterfield, have it re-upholstered and it’ll be perfect in any style home.
Oriental rugs are statement pieces that are on every designer’s “it” list. They add bold colors but allow for neutral upholstery, which is trending right now. Oriental rugs also work well with mid-century modern pieces. The juxtaposition between a striking rug and a simple piece of furniture creates an interesting look. One design trick that adds comfort and style to any space is to layer your rugs. Throw an Oriental rug over a textured jute rug and be amazed at the dimension it brings to a room.
The Barcelona chair is another one of those classic pieces that is eternally popular. The simplicity works with so many different design styles, but it’s also very comfortable. This chair is a great mixture of form and function.
Light and bright interiors are so popular right now. When you have clean, white or neutral walls it makes the room seem large and airy, and it really makes unique art and furniture pop. Bringing multiple neutral tones of gray or beige into the upholstery and accessories creates a linear, sophisticated look.
Texture is everything in room design. Incorporating brushed metals with an aged finish adds detail and interest to chairs, coffee tables, lamps, light fixtures, picture frames, and more. The subtle hint of shine goes a long way to creating a unique, elegant space.
