Small Accent Furniture with Unique Flare!

In today’s market the trends in custom designed furniture tend to straddle the border of minimalism.  The term “minimalistic” generally implies a leaning towards contemporary or transitional tastes in furniture.  When the term is used for contemporary design, it usually alludes to lack of ornamentation  in the design.  Contemporary furniture is generally known for its “sleek” clean lines and unique simple ergonomic qualities.  Some examples of contemporary furniture are shown below:

Although transitional furniture tends to be very similar to contemporary furniture in style, one thing that sets it apart is its details and ornamentation.  When decorating for a client who is neither contemporary or traditional, we often notice that they have a sense of more eclectic tastes when it comes to furniture style.  Clients who have transitional tastes often like to incorporate a modern twist into traditional designs.  Check out the chair below that blends a traditional style with a unique modern feel!

If colored nail heads are little too colorful for you, and you tend to have a taste in furniture that is more tranquil, then it   you may want to consider using nail heads on your furniture applied in a decorative pattern.  This look is great for some one who does not like too much pattern in the room, but would like to create interest in a subtle way.  Adding patterned nail heads to your furniture gives the appearance of jewelry or gems on furniture.  Check out the example below to understand how this look is a little more subtle but definitely unique!

This look is great for someone who does not like patterned fabrics, but would like to add a special touch to their furniture.

A classic look, which has been around for decades, is scalloped inspired furniture.  Commonly seen on the base of chairs, this look was created to add  a unique touch.  When originally designed, the look was more of a sloped curve, while today it tends to be a real pattern or shape.
