Classic or traditional interior design for your home

Drawing upon a rich history and influence from the decorative arts, classic design is also often referred to as “traditional.”  In fact, centuries of innovation and cultural savoir-faire give this style substantial depth. Distinctive ideas that have evolved over many periods infuse classic decor with signature characteristics:  sumptuous fabrics, decorative trims, assortments of moldings, and carved and sculptural furnishings.  A great deal of value is placed on comfort  as well as what is pleasing to the eye. In essence, classic design is timeless.
