|This is a great example of a traditional study. By Tiffany Farha Designs|
To clear some of that up for you, I will be featuring a different style each week until we are done. During these features you can look forward to reading some key features of that style, as well as seeing how some famous pieces that are key to that style.
This week we will talk traditional.
|Here is a traditionally designed foyer (found on Pinterest)|
When I think traditional, I think of tailored, structured furnishings with more organic shapes (lines that tend to curve, or flare). I think of tufted upholstered pieces with fluted and/or tapered legs, with overall more ornate detailing. I think of detailed moulding profiles, wainscoting, chair rail moulding and built-in hutches and bookcases.
Some famous traditional pieces:
|A classic traditional Wingback.|
|Chippendale style chairs are very traditional.|
|This Louis XVI is ultra traditional.|
Next week we will contrast this Saturday Styles with Modern. For more traditional, check out the traditional board we've got going on Pinterest.
