Today’s furniture trend combines classic with contemporary and simple elegance with modern luxury. It goes without saying that 2015 is all about color and personality, but incorporating them into a classic and inspiring design may seem like a difficult task.
Maintaining a luxurious look without crossing the line into overindulgence may be done, if carefully crafted. Reinventing modern luxury can be exhilarating for any designer, and may surprise you with the looks that they can bring together.
Fuse Style, Materials and Decorations
Luxury does not always mean over the top extravagance. Recently designers have taken classic materials and transformed them into more modern looks, while still keeping that luxurious feel. “Tommy Bahama has done a great job of blending their
classic tropical elements with a more edgy design,” says Edith Orlansky, one of Baer’s interior designers.
“I’ll show my clients a collection like
Island Fusion and they love the mix of unique geometric shapes fused with that classic Tommy Bahama wood.”
It’s Always the Quiet Ones
The smallest of pieces can create the biggest impact. Anything with rustic and natural wood tones, glowing gold metals or shimmering granite will add an unexpected pop defining your modern luxury design. Natural materials are
mainly seen in frames and bases of modern chairs, tables, sofas, beds and lighting fixtures. Adding a touch of whimsy to an otherwise modern room, like with the
Bali Hai Hibiscus Accent Table below, you will create a look that melds glamour with function.
Hints of Colors
Classic rooms with natural colors are always perfectly topped off with touches of pastels and beautiful color schemes. Mixing a sophisticated gray tone with a deep purple or a rich blue and a vibrant yellow in one piece is a
sure way to bring modern luxury into any room. Subtle hints of pastel green in a classically white room can make any house feel like a home. See what we mean with the The Bag Lady’s Cabinet from Paula Deen Home.
Organic materials paired with decorative patterns can keep a classy look while creating versatility and comfort. Furnishing your home with a retro, hotel inspired, couch invites guests in and brings tranquility with
natural tones making your guests feel both welcomed and comfortable. Helping your room become the entertainment center through fun and exciting furniture is a way to help your design stay luxurious and modern at the same time.

Modernizing your home does not mean having to stick with the design that is congruent to the terms of what constitutes “modern.” Through the ambiance of the furniture you’ve chosen, you can create the classical look you want, with a spunky personality everybody can admire.
