I’m all over the map when it comes to my “style”. One minute I’m fixated on the rivets of an industrial rolling cart and the next I am fabricating a bohochic hippie reading tent. However, what I have found during my deign consults is that I am not alone. When my clients present me with their inspiration boards, undoubtably there are elements of traditional, modern, rustic, antique, and a whole lot more. A matching set of furniture used to be a sign of luxury and rarely were the sofa, loveseat, and matching armchair broken up. All the legs matched, the colours matched, and all of the patterns…you guessed it…matched. Many furniture stores still present their groupings this way. It takes the guesswork out of the equation and makes for an easier sale. Shoppers can wander mindlessly and just point to a set that they think will suit their room.
