Long neglected in favour of a minimalist and modern design, classical furniture is gradually reclaiming its place in our homes. Bringing with it a wave of nostalgia and elegance, it has become more versatile and many like to apply contemporary patterns, materials and colours to it. If you want to add a chic, trendy and timeless touch to your interior, classic furniture may well be the solution. Here’s how it can fit into any style of decoration, even yours.
Classic furniture updated to the latest trends
If you want to introduce classic furniture into your home, you can give it a breath of fresh air by tailoring it to today’s trends.
Classic furniture made of contemporary materials for a fresh look
Classic furniture no longer conforms to the conventions of yesteryear, since the precious materials of which it was made are now sometimes too expensive. New materials are now replacing them. For example, it is now common to find a plastic pendant chandelier in a dining room.
Colours intermingle and redefine decoration standards
In addition to being made of modern materials, classic furniture is also available in contemporary and pop colours. It can therefore be used in a room with a sharp decoration where you would not expect to find the mouldings and curves of a baroque chest of drawers. This offbeat effect reflects the latest trendy design styles.
Reconnect with the past with classic furniture
Whether inspired by a Louis XV, Louis XVI, or even Empire style, classic furniture gives you an opportunity to reconnect with the golden age of Italian and French furniture. When you choose this kind of furniture, it will delight you with all the imagination of the European courts of yore. Moreover, this type of furniture will give a luxurious touch to your home.
Applying an aged look, by sanding for example, you can give your classic furniture a nostalgic look and produce a retro atmosphere that will beautify any room in your home. Something worth considering.
Adopt shabby-chic with classic furniture
Classic furniture also gives you the opportunity to (re)discover the shabby-chicstyle! Having appeared in England in the 1980s, it reinterprets an antique style to make it more colourful and romantic. With a classic old look and precious materials such as velvet, classic furniture will give you a good choice of living room furniture and can enhance the chic side of a bedroom. Do not hesitate to combine the genres, because revisited classic furniture obeys only one rule: difference.
