My design tastes have changed many times over the years, and if you're like me, yours have, too.\nWhen I was younger, I loved the look of traditional furniture because it reminded me of the upright piano in my parents' home. Then in college, I became fond of mid-century pieces and subsequently decorated my apartments as such. However, these days, my atheistic is strictly minimal and modern. \nFor this reason, I have learned the importance of transitional home furnishings. \nIf you're new to this term, transitional design refers to furnishings that can be incorporated into multiple style settings. Usually these pieces feature classic silhouettes, materials and hues that are both beautiful and timeless.\nThe Plank Gray Table Lamp by Barbara Cosgrove Lamps is a perfect example of transitional design. It relies on simple, clean lines and colors that work in modern, traditional, and coastal rooms. See the groupings below to see how I've styled it three different ways.\n \n\nFor questions or comments about styling your home with transitional furnishings, contact our design team today!
