Style Files: Mixing genres

The living room in this picture is a perfect example of how to combine different form and style genres within a single space. The classic, more formal lines of the occasional chairs are placed alongside a contemporary sofa, providing an interesting combination of traditional and modern. It is not necessary to match your furniture to the same era or style, in fact a combination of different form and genre provides a more intriguing interior decor, adding personality to your room.

Here is another perfect example of what mixing modern and traditional can achieve. The slim, minimalist lines of the vintage Danish armchairs are contrasted perfectly against the fuller silhouette of the contemporary lounge.
