Good design is always good design, when maintained, and the inherent versatility of antique furnishings and accessories can elevate and unify a room’s interiors.
Integrating fine antiques into a room design elevates the sophistication of the space. Many antiques are seen in this room: a pair of dark antique Asian tables, flank the fireplace and feature two different collections, a collection of antique hinged crystal boxes and a collection of antique colored boxes; antique bench refinished in gold; small vintage cigarette table; 17th century rose medallion porcelain plate; 18th century crystal compote; collection of Imari seen in breakfront. The breakfront houses many fine antiques including European crystal, blue and white Ming Chinese porcelain urn. The integration of a citron color, seen on the ottoman, sofa pillows and draperies, modernizes this living room but still honors the antique characteristics of the homes interior design.
