We go deep into the different styles, which are the most highly sought-after around the globe.
+ Rustic: This style is known because of the use of natural materials. The furniture included into rustic designs use are handcrafted with strong cultural and regional touches. Rustic style also brings to any home the feeling of being more comfortable, casual, and relaxed.
+ Antique: Antique furniture styles are characterized by European interior house designs.
What is very important to point out is the fact of antique furniture is commonly made to be used, not displayed.
This makes of antique designs look boring or without further interesting additions, such as fancy details.
+ Modern: What we need to know about modern furniture is the clean lines that offers to the room itself. Modern styles for interior designs are often made of vinyl, plastic or chrome. These materials came up around the 50s, and since then they have found a place into modern houses, as the standard.
+ European furniture
This style of furniture can be roughly split in 3 main branches: Italian, English and French.
We begin by the Italian, because it is becoming very popular over the last decade for US citizens. Why? because the Italian style offer a wide range of materials to choose from, from wood up to marble, stone or fabric. Furniture pieces into the Italian furniture are ornate as well as large, sometimes using Roman sculpture and architecture.
We go then to the French style. It often includes designs, elaborated and perhaps handcrafted with detailed carvings, with highly ornate patterns.
+ Fancy details with English furniture
The English furniture has been always made of woods, including principally walnut, oak or mahogany. This style is very close to the American rustic one, due to its fancy details and the use of natural colors. The predominant colours used are dark or natural colors.
