Design 101: Do the Unexpected!

Modern homes of today look the best when they have items that are "unexpected". See four room examples of this below from the Brice showroom in Atlanta.

This beautiful spool chair is stained in a dark finish and then covered with an ikat fabric in browns, grays and blacks. The unexpected part is the ivory fabric as a coordinate, this anchors the chair and makes the ikat fabric come to the forefront without being too busy. If the ivory was left out, the chair would not have the extra punch shown here. Brice Showroom, Atlanta. To the trade.

This large ottoman is a traditional style with its turned legs and traditional wheels. Then covered in a modern "flour sack" fabric in blue and ivory. Mix the old and new to create something special for your room!

Add that extra special piece to your room for a focal point! This new table is a rendition of an antique cart in iron with natural wood shelves. A unique piece for any decor!

This beautiful chest has all the style and flair of the elegant and dressy chests that have been a part of traditional homes for years. But the old style has been updated to a new style by using distressed wood and adding a dark stain in a more clear finish. This highlights the true patina of the wood and shows all the flaws. We love distressing and flaws!
