Furniture Style Files

Everyone has a unique taste and certain palate in furniture by which they decorate their homes. One will feel it hard to find one’s own taste if they don’t know what it’s called. The word furniture comes from the French word fourniture, which means equipment. Here we will tour through some of the most famous styles of furniture used in the world of interiors.

Traditional furniture is called formal furniture from the Victorian period. It combines features from the Queen Anne period – graceful and elaborately decorated, Chippendale style – artistic embellishment and straightened out lines and Sheraton style – delicate pieces with tapered legs and contrasting inlays. Together this creates a comfortable and warm environment with hand crafted, dark timber pieces, over stuffed, plush sofas and elegant fabrics.

The enduring popularity of the Mid-Century Modern style is based on many factors. It gave us clean lines, gentle organic curves, a love for different materials and designers that are idolized even today. While there is some disagreement about when the period started, it roughly lasted from the mid-1930s to mid-1960s

Moving away from the ornate carvings of the Baroque and Rococo periods that preceded it, Neo classical furniture or contemporary classic furniture offers a more streamlined style. While fluted details can still be found on things like chairs and sofas, design elements centre on simpler features such as tapered legs, scrolls and medallions.

 

Fabrics and upholstery are rich but subtle, with colors like moss green, dusty blue and pink, and crisp, classic white.

Transitional Style (also known as “updated classic for men”, “classic with a contemporary twist”, “new takes on old classics”) in interior design and furniture design refers to a contemporary blend of traditional and modern styles, midway between old world traditional and the world of chrome and glass contemporary; 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.

Contemporary style is easily recognizable for its simple and sleek lines. It is very distinguishable from a more traditional style in that there is hardly any intricate detail or carving. The lines of contemporary style furniture are either hard edged or gently curved.

Eclectic style encompasses a variety of periods and styles and is brought together through the use of color, texture, shape and finish. Here’s how it breaks down: Colors: The palette can vary, but it’s best to stick with a few neutrals to help tie all the elements together.

The MD of Spacio Mr. Navin Kanodia says “Furniture has been a staple of wealth and luxury for centuries. Over the period the industry has been graced with all forms and shapes of furniture and Spacio creates such bespoke masterpieces as per client’s requirement taking into consideration the above genres.
