From antique furnishings to floral-print fabrics, the traditional style takes its inspiration from the past, it’s really about comfort. Even in a room that doesn’t have traditional architecture, furnishings and materials you can create a classic look.
We have a wealth of beautiful, traditionally made and styled fabrics for furniture, curtains and cushions. Woven fabrics, floral prints, Regency stripes and a wide range of beautifully reproduced patterns are available in a variety of materials including damask, brocades, silks, velvets and natural linen. Popular fabrics in traditional designs also include chintz and crewel, plaids, stripes, and tone-on-tone patterns. Deep, rich fabrics such as velvet can make a traditional living room feel warm, cosy and intimate.
Colour doesn’t over power in a traditional interior it is generally much softer and more refined. A neutral palette can be a useful backdrop, but why not introduce pale blue, lavender, spring green, chamois or even soft red in cushions and accessories. Even bright shades, such as lemon yellow, fuchsia or turquoise can also work, they feel new and fresh and the style is still planted in traditional territory if balanced with more restrained hues.
In traditional living rooms, texture, colour and pattern keep the eye interested and tie the entire room together. When we walk into a room, our eyes notice pattern and colour first, then texture. Textiles and materials can also integrate more versatile elements in a traditional living room. Covering long-term investment pieces of upholstered furniture in neutral fabrics is a timeless choice, enhanced with easily interchanged pillows and curtains in bold patterns and colours.
Morris & Co. fabrics come in a wide choice from woven tapestry and jacquard qualities, printed linens and prints, all-over silk embroideries and classic cotton damasks, through to lightweight pretty leaf trails and semi-plains.
