Detailed item info

Embracing the idea that well-designed objects work together, New Classic Style shows you how to mix the best of traditional and modern furnishings to create a fresh, uniquely personal look. Whether it's a molded plywood chair, a Heywood-Wakefield desk, or a steel-frame leather chaise, introducing a modern piece or two into a room of mostly traditional furniture is like taking a deep breath -- the clean lines and pure shapes relax the space and lighten the room. In a mostly modern room, on the other hand, adding a weathered pine table or a plain Shaker cupboard is like slipping into your favorite jeans -- the worn, comforting textures balance those of aluminum, steel, and glass while meeting the modernist demand for honest materials, straightforward shapes, and efficient practicality. New Classic Style shows you how to achieve a successful mix: how to combine shapes to create harmony, how to use color to unify furnishings from different periods and styles, and how to use the contrast between old and new to create drama, excitement, and fun in your rooms -- all without sacrificing creature comforts.

Modern, the style of the late 1920s to the early 1960s, is enjoying a resurgence of popularity as people find comfort in pieces from the past. This book shows readers how to blend modern with other periods and styles to create a look that's current, comfortable, and personal. Whole-house tours illustrate modern mixes. Features: Fine antiques spiced with modern classics; Clean-lined shapes for uncluttered interiors; Comfortable combinations for family living; Special features make it easy to recognise good pieces and use them effectively; Illustrated primer of modern and traditional shapes; What makes a modern mix work; Who's who in modern design; It's the handbook on picking from the past to create the look of the future; Harmonies of shape and line; Contrasts in textures and materials; Using fabrics, textiles, and colour.
