Traditional style varies depending on which country and time period that you focus on. Traditional styles tend to be more formal with an elegant, opulent feel. Poster and canopy beds, formal dining rooms and detailed accessories are all a part of traditional styling. Think of George Washington’s Mount Vernon home or Thomas Jefferson’s beautiful Monticello as gorgeous examples of traditionally styled homes.
The Westview Traditional King Mansion Bed by Belfort Signature is one of our favorite traditional looks on display in our show room.
Transitional Style is a mix of contemporary and traditional styles and it is a great way for you to update a traditional look without having to replace every piece in your home. Most of the colors used in a transitional styles are neutral, but textures and patterns play a large role in bringing this style to life. Here are a few of our best transitional pieces for your home. The Legacy Classic Boulevard Dining table and chairs is a great formal dining room that works well in a traditional home but brings a bit of contemporary styling to a dining room.
For a transitional look in your bedroom, we like the Aspenhome Kensington Sleigh headboard and storage footboard. This piece comes in twin, queen, and King/California King sizes. Clean lines and unexpected details give the sleigh headboard a sleek look and make it a more modern alternative to an otherwise traditional item.
Contemporary Style is modern and bold with its color choices and furniture designs. Sleek clean lines and dramatic colors are signature looks for this style. The beautiful design of the black leather Calvin Collection Sofa is shown in this living room with the dramatic contrast of a fuschia area rug and throw. What a gorgeous look to bring a modern feel to your home!
Another modern look is the Signature Design Heath - chocolate sofa sectional with right chaise. This sectional sofa shown in a sleek modern room shows an example of contemporary style quite nicely.
What could be more soothing and relaxing than a cottage? Just the word Cottage, evokes feelings of comfort and simple beauty. The cottage style includes warm colors and distressed and painted finishes. Country fabrics work well with this look. This Nantucket sofa by Rowe is the perfect anchor piece for a cottage style living room for your home.
White and pastel colors bring a cottage feel to a room and this Coastal Living Cottage sandbox cocktail table by Stanley is the perfect table for a casual cottage style family room.
Eclectic Style is quirky and is a combination of all styles. The best way to describe eclectic style is that the room and the pieces within it, should feel and look as though they have been collected and acquired over time. The pieces should not have a put together feel and should be original and can be from different genres. The room should tell a story of it's owner. The pieces should speak to your tastes, or your travels, but should be a collection of items that at first glance may not seem to go together but somehow still work to create a style of their own.
This room is a great example of a modern eclectic look and the pieces are part of the Vanguard, Thom Filicia Home Collection available at Belfort Furniture. The pieces are interesting and not matching but they work together to make a beautiful collected look of their own.
Also from the Vanguard, Thom Filicia home collection is this dining room that has a modern eclectic feel. The side chairs and arm chairs have wood of different colors and the pieces have that collected feel, not "matchy-matchy" like so many other dining rooms.
