Key Traditional Characteristics

Inspired by the Past

Traditional style borrows from the past inspired by the homes of the 18th and 19th century. The style is timeless, but not overly fancy.  Look for structured pieces with carved wood or upholstery and pick colors that are neutral and elegant.

Dramatic Detail

Traditional hasn’t lost what matters – and that’s all in the detail. The tufting and piping. The feminine fringe. That charming, nostalgic touch that comes from pieces like lantern-style lighting.

Balanced Luxury

You can have your rich fabrics and love them too. Just like a cake, Traditional is one piece at a time. Think it through and decide what you really want by print, pattern and color. Velvet? Leather? Silk? Linen? A combination of many? It’s all up to you.

Today's Traditional

Traditional begs you to declutter. Throw away what doesn’t match your current style. Simplify with a unified palette. Neutrals are always a good bet, because you can add colorful touches – a few vintage pieces sprinkled here and there, pillows and throws with splashes of color…the possibilities are up to you.
