Traditional

Notes:

  • It’s called traditional because it has a long history of classic pieces that are always suitable when elegance is your focus.
  • It features dark woods, warm colors, symmetrical lines, plush cushions, and curvy designs that don’t cross the line to ornate or fussy. Think wingback chairs, Chippendale-style chairs, and Persian rugs.

Contemporary

Notes:

  • It can be confused for modern or minimalism, but contemporary design borrows from several eras for furniture that is completely of the moment.
  • It has more curves than modern, and more emphasis on comfort. It features materials such as wool, cotton, or linen in solid colors. The lack of ornamentation and patterns in modern design makes it easy to identify, with its air of sleek simplicity.
  • Because it is the most “current” style of furniture, it’s also always evolving. Think oversized sofas, glass coffee tables.

Modern

Notes:

  • Rooted in the ’50s, the modern design is starker and more dramatic than contemporary, with pieces that are functional rather than ornamental.
  • It features neutral colors with bold accents, straight lines, graphic patterns, lack of detailing, and materials such as vinyl, steel, wood, metal, and leather. Think plastic chairs and AMC’s “Mad Men.”

Vintage

Notes:

  • If you gravitate toward flea markets or your grandmother’s attic, you probably have an affinity for preowned items you just can’t find anymore, creating a unique style that can range from elegant to funky.
  • But what qualifies as vintage? Most decorators will classify pieces from 30 to 100 years old as vintage. Older than 100, and it’s bonafide antique.
  • A subcategory of vintage is retro, which describes pieces from the ’50s to the ’80s. If furniture is newer than 30 years old, it’s just… used.

Roll it all up

Notes:

  • If you’re intrigued and want to learn more, there are endless categories to learn about, new ones popping up all the time, and grouping subsets of subsets.
  • But identifying these more common styles will help you navigate furniture stores and build a basic style foundation. Practice by quizzing yourself on various furniture sets by paying attention to features such as materials, fabrics, patterns, and finishes.
  • QUESTION?

    Of course, there’s no reason you can’t mix up pieces from different categories to achieve a mood for a room that’s more eclectic—or more you. Knowing what styles you like, though, can guide you to similar articles of furniture that resonate with you.

  • So now that you’ve learned the different types of popular furniture styles, set forth on an educated journey to create your dream surroundings.
