Modern Pieces for the Traditional Home

Posted by

Making the transition from traditional to modern takes time and patience. Unless you’re in the mood (or have the budget) to do a total renovation chances are you are going to spend some time replacing pieces, changing wall colours, and slowly switching out accent pieces to suit your desired new aesthetic. As luck would have it, modern home design is all about quality over quantity. So, it won’t take long before your home is feeling more modern than traditional.

Here are a couple suggestions from the folks at Pallucci Furniture for how to transition your home’s interior design from Traditional to Modern.

Start with the biggest items first. For example, in the living room, start by replacing your sofa and loveseat with something in your desired new aesthetic. We absolutely love the Zoey Fabric Sofa and Loveseat. The soft, structured look of this sof and loveseat give you the ability to slowly transition the room around them. They won’t look out of place set next to traditional wood end tables, or in front of a brocade set of drapes. These couches are distinct, yet versatile.

Next up, take focal point pieces and switch them out for more modern examples of the same piece of furniture. For example, the coffee table. Such a simple, functional piece of furniture, yet it acts as the focal point of conversation, company, and activity in your living room. What about exchanging your heavy, traditional coffee table for an airier mid century piece such as the Enzo Coffee Table. The cut out shelf in this table gives this piece a function and compelling visuals.

Lastly, if you do still want to keep some softness and traditionality to your new, modern aesthetic. Why not add a sumptuous ottoman to your living room or hallway? The Appollo Fabric Ottoman in charcoal is the perfect mix of traditional and modern.
