When combined tastefully, the contrast of antique and modern can be particularly striking. Juxtaposition of old and new is always visually appealing. When affordability comes to mind, you can start with your existing traditional main furnishings and add modern accent pieces. By using accent pieces and fewer patterns, you can achieve a modern flavor with traditional, classic warmth.
If choosing plain upholstery without any pattern and print, go with straightforward color. Choose neutral colors like cream, beige, white, and off-white to make the area look sophisticated and soft. Create a contemporary look by combining the neutrals with silver, gray, or pastel blue. Light or neutral colors bring a modern look to a classic style. These colors can be applied not only in upholstery, but also on interior walls.
The modern classic style looks elegant without any clutter. It is ideal for small spaces where it will look sophisticated and opulent without feeling overly crowded. Ideal modern furniture is characterized by geometric and modular shaping; to add a dramatic effect, choose a sofa with leather upholstery in dark colors.
