Thought I would share what I feel are classic pieces or have a timeless design. Variations in style and pricing can always be found when designing and often is depending on other decisions made, availability, budget, etc. It is a fun part of the whole design process and putting it all uniquely together. This is one of the reasons I love bringing antiques in as well.
The classic Chesterfield Sofa (there was also one in my last blog). This antique sofa reupholstered in fabric or leather can easily work with a traditional, rustic or contemporary setting.
The Barcelona Chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. A leading modernist architect who also designed furniture. This has always been a popular chair for its form and function.
A wood and iron coffee table with a raw look works well to balance out different styles in a room.
Occasional tables with a leather or metal finish is always a nice accent and juxtaposition to wood coffee tables.
On the left, a metal pedestal table from Brocade Home and on the right, an original Jean Michel Frank X Form side table in parchment but could also be reproduced using a shagreen leather..
Floor mirrors are great to add weight to a room and to also open a room up, make it feel larger. Here is an example from Horchow.
This Murano glass chandelier by La Murrina comes in amazing colors and styles. It is quite expensive but there are many options out there that work as well.
Canopy beds or poster beds can be dressed up for a traditional, modern or contemporary setting by the bedding and its surrounds.. This is one of my favorite beds and I have paired it with some contemporary, lacquered pieces. This would be great in a bedroom with a lofty space having tall ceilings and french or walnut hardwood floors with big, drapey bedding and curtains..
