Materials and Colors. There is a variety of materials used in transitional furniture. You may say it is greater in variety than either traditional or modern styles, but all material is treated with restraint. Wood is generally lighter in color than traditional furniture, because the look is never dark and brooding. However darker finishes may be used, as well as painted finishes. Metal, glass, and wood are often used together in different combinations. But you will not find sleek metal, glass or acrylic on its own as in contemporary furniture. Very often these materials will be used to add detail. Leather is one of the most popular materials in transitional furniture. Distressed leather is also used often. The idea is to have furniture that is casual and comfortable, and yet shows some semblance of formality. Textured fabric such as ultrasuedes, corduroys, and chenilles are often used. Since color is generally subdued, texture is often used to create interest. Fabric colors in transitional style furniture are often neutral and toned down. Olives, taupes, creamy whites, and tans are some of the colors that are used often.
Obligatory attribute of the interior is the fireplace. Its presence is mandatory in the living room. Rococo style elements fit excellently. They are presented in the form of furniture made of mahogany. The feet of furniture necessarily curved, the furniture itself has carved ornaments. Furniture is made of natural precious wood: walnut, mahogany, stained oak. Most furniture has carved ornaments, sometimes inlaid with precious stones and metals. Victorian style is unthinkable without the Library, and its contents should not leave any person who likes literature indifferent. Since the interior of a Victorian style incorporates elements of several styles, so here is a certain dependence of these styles on the purpose of the room. The elements of the Gothic style can be found in the figural stucco, huge windows, high ceilings. Mandatory attribute for the Gothic is the fireplace. The presence of the carpet with intricate patterns indicates the presence of Indian style.
