(Redirected to Transitional Style article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Transitional Style (also known as “updated classic”, “classic with a contemporary twist”, “new takes on old classics”) in interior design and furniture design refers to a blend of traditional and contemporary styles, incorporating lines that are less ornate than traditional designs, but not as severely basic as contemporary lines. As a result transitional furniture designs are classic, timeless, and clean. Curves combine with straight lines in a transitional style interior to deliver a look that balances both masculine and feminine attributes for a comfortable, contemporary design. The scales of the pieces are ample but not overwhelming. A lack of ornamentation and decoration keeps the focus on the simplicity and sophistication of the design.[1]

Unlike contemporary furniture, transitional style focuses on comfort and practicality to meet the lifestyle of an active household. Goose feather and down fill is typically used for upholstered furniture, wood species (maple, mahogany, walnut, etc..) and wood finishing can range from a natural finish to a high-gloss lacquer. A multitude of fabric selections can vary from durable materials to sophisticated, plush fabrics, with patterns ranging from textured solids to large pattern prints. Notable 21st century transitional style furniture designers include Barbara Barry, Sally Sirkin Lewis, Nina Petronzio, Thomas Pheasant, Maxine Snider[2] [3]
