Reasonably so, because although it emerged in Europe as far back as the 1600s, it hasn’t gone out of style since.

If you love the traditional style of furniture, it is safe to say that you have class with an aptitude for great taste. You put effort into the look and feel of your home, down to the tiny details.

There are many routes you can take within the style, but the staples of a traditional styled home remain set in stone.

First is, of course, the intricate and thoughtful designs. Think carved wood,tapered legs under tables, and gentleGettyImages 73031178 curves in the arms of sofas and loveseats. Make it stand out with patterned accent chairs and throw pillows with tassels. 

 

Second, it’s all about the design and color. Ornately styled rugs. Polished, dark woods in the legs of furniture, flooring, dining tables, and cabinetry. Dramatic – yet understated – color schemes with deep maroons and golds, or rich greys, greens, and beiges for a brighter atmosphere.

 

Lastly, artistic and luxurious accents. Incorporate stunning metals in hardware such as copper or brass. Look for accent chairs and ottomans with plush upholstery and exposed nail heads. Decorate bookshelves and side tables boldly with globes, book collections, and figurines.
