Romantic Style:



Romantic style can be easily mixed with other styles such as traditional, Tuscan, French, rustic, Victorian, English, cottage and country, which is not necessarily synonymous with frilly and feminine; it is traditional – yet not stuffy – look that charms all five senses through soft color palettes and painted on vintage piece of furniture.

Modern Style:



Modern design was born in response to the overly ornate, cluttered and fancy design of the late 19th century. The modernist designers of that time wanted to break the rules and go against what was deemed traditional design for that time.

Modern designs mostly incorporate straight lines putting an emphasis on monochromatic color palette, with a simple and distinct attention to minimalism while avoiding a stark, cold feeling. It’s in favor of clean, straight lines, cluttered spaces, and overall lack of fussiness.

White, beiges, light shades of wood, greys and few shades of black are the main color palette. Modern style favors open concept. Hence, you will see lot of open cabinets.


Contemporary Style:



Contemporary Style is rooted as the “now” concept, it is ever changing. This style of furniture is typically innovative and forward looking. It’s a perfect blend of classic and modern designs (design that evolved during 1900-1950) with latest innovations.

Contemporary style is distinctly more complex than modern style. It can be difficult to initially discern the difference between the two designs. Contemporary style draws heavily on the exterior of a craftsman style but prefers the large, spacious areas.

Detailing is the key to contemporary design. Sometimes the shutters are influenced by ancient architectures with modern materials. It may or may not have a glass front. Fancy leather detailing can also be noticed on handles or any focal point. Legs are usually straight and made with the same material and color of the shutters.


Duality Concept:



Are you someone who gets confused whether to pick bread and jam or bread and butter; or say dip your fries with ketchup or cover them. What if you don’t have to pick one but enjoy the best of both worlds.

Have you ever teamed up your ripped jeans with a kurta; a pair of sneakers with your chic dress; a red hoodie with denim; or silver jewelry with a simple black saree or a little black dress. Then you understand the concept of duality.

With duality concept you can combine two different textures like plain surface with textured surface; combine two tones. It can be a blend of open cabinets and closed cabinets.


Minimalist design:



Minimalist design has been described as design at its most basic, stripped off, superfluous elements, colors, shapes and textures. Its purpose is to make the content stand and be the focal point. From a visual standpoint, minimalist design is meant to be calming and to bring your thoughts to the basics
