Types of Furniture Styles
This style is based in traditional furniture design, but offers a fresh take on those classics thanks to its blend with modern influences. Elements and shapes spring from traditional furnishings, but colors and patterns might be unexpected, resulting in a structured, traditional-looking sofa clad in a bright and modern fabric. Shop Contemporary.
Transitional combines the luxurious coziness of the traditional style with the simple shapes and subtle colors of contemporary design. It’s a look that is familiar but fresh. The natural blend of warm wood tones and light, airy tones makes for a crowd-pleasing mix of masculine and feminine elements. Shop Transitional.
Modern design refers to the modernist movement that flourished between the early 1900s and 1960s, although it’s not specifically confined to this period. The style represents an effort to break with tradition, so furniture from this movement lacks purely ornamental flourishes. Instead, it’s hard-edged and simple, with form following function. Shop Modern.
The traditional style springs from the great houses of the French and British countrysides. It’s quite formal and tailored, and the pieces tend to be classics that fit into a refined room. This wonderfully restrained design style values comfort and durability. Shop Traditional.
When we talk about contemporary design, we are talking about what style is currently being produced. Right now’s of-the-moment style is influenced by urban elements such as steel and brick, and is low-key in its color schemes. Shop Contemporary.
Natural materials such as sticks, twigs and logs play a big part in this style. It arose in the mid-to-late 1800s in the Adirondack Mountains of New York (the classic Adirondack chair is an example) and experienced a resurgence as the National Park Service began to build visitor facilities that blended into the natural surroundings in the early- and mid-1900s. Shop Rustic.
Cozy fabrics play a big role in the cottage style, with skirts on tables, ruffles on curtains and fluffy upholstery on furniture. Floral, chintz and striped patterns are common elements, while wood elements are typically painted white or stained a light shade. Shop Cottage.
This elegant style takes its cue from the northern area of Italy, lending an Old World air to interiors decorated in this style. Pieces tend to feature aged finishes and scrollwork, along with heavy furniture legs and earth-toned fabrics. Shop Tuscan.
Clean, simple lines exemplify this sleek design style that hails from the mid-20th century. The natural beauty of teak’s rich hue is often allowed to shine, while rich swaths of color are commonly used as upholstery fabrics.
This design style uses a mix of varying styles to reflect the personality of the person who inhabits the space. There is no rule book when it comes to the eclectic style. As long as everything in the room works together tonally and scale-wise, styles can mix in a way that looks fantastic, if unexpected. Shop Eclectic.
The country style features hardworking, long-wearing wooden pieces of furniture that lend an airy feel with simple lines. Many items are farmhouse-inspired, with solid construction and distressed wood. Shop Country.
Born of factories retrofitted as lofts, complete with exposed brick walls and visible beams, this style embraces utilitarian influences. A slightly raw look is welcome, with furniture featuring materials such as steel and reclaimed wood. Furniture might feature pipes holding slabs of wood together, for example. Shop Industrial.
