Traditional style is a timeless and enduring as a pair of blue jeans; but even the most traditional of consumers invite change, so today’s popular denim pants are slatted with random ripped cutouts; and your classic furnishings might have a flair. For instance that unfinished jeans appearance has even made its way into some furnishings. While the look of classic Chippendale and Louis XV will always have a following, they are currently being overshadowed by a furniture style that transitions between past and present.
Although many people use the words modern and contemporary interchangeably in design, they are not synonymous. Contemporary incorporates more shapes, colors and reflective surfaces, and the use of more man-made materials-Lucite, plastic, stainless steel, Geometic designs, rounded forms, and less squared structure set it apart. Contemporary design allows for much for interpretation.
Transitional style is a look, a disparate mix of furnishings to promote a unique individual ambiance. Transitional is the label given to furniture that has been designed with an unexpected twist. It could be a mixture of wood and iron in a single table or desk, or the detail of a wooden grille pattern on the sides of a comfortable lounge chair, or a modified silhouette for the stately wingchair.

The philosophy behind Wabi-sabi changes our perception about the beauty of imperfection and the prized value of things made by hand or that expose the patina of age.
