Decorating in the transitional style–also called updated classic–is quite open to interpretation. Usually, though, you will find that the key characteristics are a healthy blend of both contemporary and traditional styles. Straight lines combined with curves, and the various masculine and feminine attributes of decorating are totally intermixed. Ornate ornamentation is gone, offering a simpler, yet sophisticated look.
Transitional furniture is not one single extreme, but rather an eclectic and casual blend of pieces. Because comfort is emphasized, many pieces are made with more durable and plush pieces to withstand an active household. Styles will undoubtedly range from more durable materials such as metal and glass all the way to sophisticated, plush fabrics. There is often a myriad of fabric selections to be had, with patterns ranging from textured solids all the way to large patterned prints.
Because transitional furniture is a mixture of highly individualistic styles, your best bet is to plan a shopping trip to Hickory Furniture Mart.
