Sculptural Lighting and Paper Lanterns. Lighting can make or break the look of your interior, regardless of the theme you have going. But in the case of Asian style, it adds to the entire visual and elegantly accentuates the theme. Stylish hanging paper lanterns, sculptural lighting installations and a few carefully placed candles go a long way in creating a home inspired by the Far East! For those looking to add a timeless decor addition that bridges the gap between the East and the West with a more modern silhouette, we suggest dipping into the stunning Akari Light Sculpture Collection from Isamu Noguchi. Organic and Sustainable Design. This is one aspect of Asian design that is simply irresistible and should appeal to the eco-conscious homeowners out there. Smooth polished stones such as river rocks, sustainable bamboo blinds that replace the traditional drapes, intricately woven tatami mats, and potted plants and shrubs that bring in nature's goodness tend to come together to paint that picture-perfect look. It's the little details that tend to make a big difference to the ambiance of the room. Make sure you keep the accessories and furnishings as sustainable and organic as possible to induce a truly Asian vibe.
Transitional Style Features. Quite possibly the most definitive attribute of this style is that it avoids the extremes such as the ornate character of traditional styles, as well as the extreme austerity of modern styles. Simple and sophisticated lines are generally found in transitional furniture, but not the sharp edges or spare and stark straight lines that you will generally find in contemporary or modern furniture. The lines do not have to be straight but may be gently curved. The curved lines are more gentle and less ornate than the ones you find in traditional furniture. In keeping with its moderate tone, transitional furniture has a medium scale, so the furniture is neither overly large nor minutely small. While there may be carving, it is only used for accents and embellishment, and the ornate elements do not cover any surface uniformly. Generally, you will find subdued colors in wood finishes and upholstery fabrics. The transitional style also leans towards being less formal. The furniture is generally more casual and comfortable. There is a balance of masculine and feminine elements, so you can create rooms that feel comfortable to everyone when you furnish with transitional style furniture.
