Antique Furniture

In with the old- a trend near and dear to my heart!

Matching design and decor elements is by no means the rule to follow.

In fact, designers and decorators are very on board and on trend with the mixing of furniture styles and periods.

Designer Michael Roberson states, “Balancing old things with new things gives a room great energy.”

Traditional Home

The sheer imperfections of  the patina and finish, affordability, provenance, repurposed brilliance and the walk away from conventional expectation creates a strong point for this trend.

I continue to encourage my clients to broaden the scope of their style through unexpected pairings and statement making focal points.

Antique pieces will do exactly that.

Give a space of pop of period personality and trend on!
