It combines traditional elegance and character with contemporary updates in the form of accessories, cleaner lines and current textiles. Traditional features include the use of button-tufting, nailhead trim and existing architectural features such as fireplaces and cornicing. Finishes are always flawless – rugs are silken, fabrics are plush and woods are rich – and sophisticated lines pervade the style’s furniture designs. Tuxedo sofas, upholstered ottoman coffee tables and elegant console tables are favoured furniture choices. Curated accessories such as abstract artwork, art glass and unique objects provide a desirably layered look.
