Modern Classics

A modern interior may mean many different things to different people. To some it may mean a stark, clean lined others it may mean a colorful space age looking space......however you visualize a modern interior, I believe that everything in a home should be done in moderation. When I design a space that is meant to feel modern and contemporary, I ALWAYS mix pieces from other era's or design styles. Mixing in some eclectic treasures, or modern takes on classic furniture is definitely one way to avoid being overwhelmed by a certain design style.

Many furniture designers today are recreating classic furniture designs from the past with a modern touch using modern materials and construction methods. These modern classics have the ability to transform a cold modern space into a timeless and elegant.

Modern versions of the wing chairs that were originally created to keep drafts from making people cold in old houses...
