Transitional style decor has taken the spotlight in the design community in recent years, but for many there is still confusion regarding what Transitional furniture actually is and how it can be incorporated into a home. At Gabby, we bring antique and transitional styles together with effortless sophistication, and our Gabby home furniture can transform any room into a Transitional design masterpiece.
In essence, Transitional furniture takes a fresh new approach to classic designs. It incorporates a mix of traditional and contemporary furniture pieces, finishes, materials and fabrics, and relies on a clean, minimalist color palette.
Gabby’s transitional furniture designs include a mixture of materials and metallic metal finishes like goldleaf, brass, silverleaf, horn, bone inlay, eglomise mirror (backpainted mirror), and faux shagreen. Gabby’s unique transitional pieces combine straight lines and classic curves that create a balance between masculine and feminine characteristics.
“As Gabby has evolved, we have taken a much more eclectic approach to designing new furniture, lighting and upholstery,” said Gabby President, William White. “We are mixing modern and classic styles and materials to build a more updated collection of what many refer to as transitional style furniture and décor.”
Give any room in your home the cool sophistication of transitional style by following Gabby’s three easy tips:
- Start with a neutral color palette. The transitional style color palette focuses on neutrals like taupe, tan and vanilla, which are combined with dark brown, grey and black to add depth to the room.
- Look for simple lines and find furniture pieces with textured, exotic materials that have a slightly more modern appeal. Don’t be afraid to mix in gold, silver, mirror, and finishes with a higher sheen. At Gabby, we always like to include an antique piece in each room to add a unique element to your space.
- Add minimalist accents and accessories. Look for minimal and simple accessories that are in the same color family as your furniture to best complement your new transitional design. Add glass, stone, and metallic accents to bring shine, elegance, and a natural effect into the room.
