What is style ? • In the realm of interior design the word style is defined as the way we put together color, shapes and textures.

Modern Design • Modern style is a clean, streamlined furniture and architecture style from the 1930s with roots in the German Bauhaus School of Design and Scandinavian modern design. • It's characterized by polished surfaces, strong geometric shapes and asymmetry. • Expansive, unadorned windows marry the interior with the exterior landscape

Classic / Traditional • Traditional furnishings can hail from England in the 18th century, the French countryside, or even the exotic lands of the East. • Among the most popular traditional styles today are 18th-century English, 19th-century neoclassic, French country, and British Colonial revival.
Transitional • A marriage of traditional and contemporary furniture, finishes, materials and fabrics equating to a classic, timeless design. • Furniture lines are simple yet sophisticated featuring either straight lines or rounded profiles. • Fabric can range from graphic patterns on overstuffed sofas to textured chenilles on sleek wood frames.
Eclectic Design • Eclectic style encompasses a variety of periods and styles and is brought together through the use of color, texture, shape and finish.
Asian style envelopes a variety of looks, including design elements from Japan, China, Vietnam and Thailand, among others.
Japan • Traditional Japanese interiors are sized according to a 3' x 6' human form, represented by natural fiber floor coverings called tatami mats. • Colors found in natural materials like bamboo and stone are used to create a serene, calm environment. • Furnishings, although spare, include shoji screens, futons and low-profile tables that, in a traditional setting, are paired with cushions for dining.
Lighting is a key design element achieved through an abundance of natural light filtered through natural fiber window shades. • Low-wattage bulbs in rice-paper lamps add to the aesthetic. • Silk fabrics featuring intricate embroidered patterns (like kimonos) can be framed and displayed as art.
China • Chinese interiors are identifiable through highly-stylized or carved furnishings featuring handpainted designs on lacquered finishes, brightly-colored accessories and ornaments or statues of animals or mythical creatures. • Red is used abundantly as a symbol of good luck
The Arts-and-Crafts Movement • A reaction to the Industrial Revolution’s reliance on mass production and the Victorian era's focus on heavy ornamentation. • Popular during the early 1900s, this style glorified craftsmanship in simple shapes with exposed joinery, spare ornamentation and strong lines.
