Traditional Furniture for Modern Homes

Traditional Furniture To Add Character

We don’t talk about traditional furniture enough. Traditional furniture, often with intricate details and extravagant design elements, has the power to add statement-making character to your home. Even in modern homes, traditional pieces can be used to create a design that’s rich in history but fresh in style. Here are some of our favorite ways to decorate with traditional furniture.

Skirted upholstery. Instantly elevate your living room with a skirted chair or ottoman. Though it may have a more formal feel you can keep it casual and chic by pairing it with the right pieces. Next to a sleek sofa with clean lines, it creates a modern contrast.

Gilded tables. Add a bit of opulence with a touch of gold. A gilded table, like the Deline console table, is a glam addition with a nod to the past. Pair it with colorful artwork and modern lighting to keep it fresh.

Carved woods. Even in small doses, carved woods can add a more formal feel to your living room. Get the look but keep the overall design modern and inviting by pairing these beautifully detailed wood elements with neutral furniture and airy fabrics.
