Why a Transitional Style Might be Perfect for Your Home. Furniture in a transitional style combines qualities from both traditional and contemporary styles. This is a style ideal for those who find traditional furnishing styles too old fashioned and stuffy, and modern styles too cold and lacking in warmth. The transitional style is not restricted to just the furniture profiles, shapes, and sizes, but carries through to finishes and materials including fabrics. As the word "transition" implies, this is the style that transitions or falls between a very traditional style and an ultra-sleek modern style. Individual furniture pieces in a transitional style may lean toward being either more traditional or more modern, but they stay away from both extremes. This neutral safety zone between the two styles helps create an in-between yet pleasing furnishing style that draws upon elements from both. A transitional style does not imply that the furniture is lacking in style, only that it is more subtle. In essence, this is what professionals in the furniture and home furnishings industry are talking about when they talk about an "updated classic" or "timeless design".
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.
