FURNISH IN A CLASSIC STYLE
The classic style is characterized by the timeless elegance that transcends fashions and passenger vices, giving the environment delicacy and bon ton typical of traditional homes of the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth century. It is the timeless style par excellence, it is immediately recognized, although it is inspired by the past, it is never out of fashion. In this style the importance is not given to functionality or technology but to the authentic beauty of the furniture and finishes.
This style is more challenging in terms of both space and economy, but not impossible. People who choose to furnish in classic style often have a passion for fine antiques.
But which are the elements that make a house “classic”?
- Fine and solid wood: Wood is a must in this style. Noble woods such as mahogany, oak, cherry and beech prevail. Often the wood is treated and worked, with very elaborate decorative details;
- Walls: the color of the walls is often neutral but not white, for example light turtledove, cream white and beige. These colors go well with the wood highlighting it and contribute to create a feeling of warmth as a whole;
- Warm and neutral colors: light or neutral walls increase the brightness in the room while the dark or saturated ones create an environment with a sophisticated touch, less obvious;
- Precious materials: the materials that are always seen in classic houses are glass, crystal, ceramic and gold finishes;
- Complex decorations in the details: the lines are never essential but often sought after;
- Floors: marble, terracotta and parquet floors harmonize perfectly with the precious essences;
- Textiles: even in textiles you choose luxurious materials: silk is common to see for curtains and drapes, the cushions are velvet or fine cotton. Carpets are never lacking, both in the living area and in the bedroom;
- Accessories: For accessories, such as lamps and mirrors, golden finishes are generally suitable, which with their precious glows give warmth to the room. The typical lines of the padded are soft in the armrests and backrests; inevitable the flounce of fabric on the ground or the feet worked, in the most “old style” models.
The characteristics that most distinguish the classic style are just the abundance of fine materials and important furniture. Being an important style, characterized by sumptuous decorations, precious colors and majesty, the balance in the project is fundamental, as you risk to fall into excess.
For a classic style, the following models are the perfect choice: the Chester sofa, characterized by classic and elegant lines, by a capitonné workmanship and by rounded armrests, which give harmony to the shapes typical of classic Chesterfield type sofas; the Cesterino sofa with a classic design and bold features as it successfully blends its timeless beauty with clean lines; lastly Buonarroti soft, comfortable and welcoming, able to fit perfectly into any type of environment.
