Traditionally styled interiors have the ability to combine timelessness and elegance. Curved lines, upholstery, tufting, trim, and crown molding - the characteristics that make up a traditional home - remain classics in the hearts of many.

To create a traditional look for your home, avoid bright colors and the jarring results of mixing and matching pieces. Instead maintain order and be somewhat predictable with your choices - let the furniture do the talking because traditional pieces certainly have a lot to say. The overall ambiance of a traditional home can range from homey to formal depending on how your inject your personal style into the space.

Our favorite new brand for traditional/casual pieces is Precedent. The Precedent sofas and lounge chairs we carry have all the elements of traditional elegance - but they let you play decorator, which allows the room to shift within a range of styles. Take a peek below at some of our favorite uses of traditional seating from Precedent:


The sleek gradual curve of the Lancaster Sofa - complete with an extravagant
amount of tufting - pairs well with the angular Stratford Side Chair, which is accented
with nailhead trim detail.



Add the sleek Gage Leather Lounge Chair for casual luxury and
the Brentwood Sofa for easy transitional seating.



The elegant Estella Side Chair has long slimming lines
with tapered legs and nailhead trim accents.



The Estella Side Chair also works well in the Dining Room. Its lush upholstery and
nailhead detail give the space a graceful and finished look.



Combining modern with traditional: made simple with the Sparkhill Open Sectional Sofa and
the lavish leather Westwood Lounge Chair.



Seating pretty: here is a pair of the Arabella Sitting Chair.
Its deep seat and structural curves give it an air of elegance.
