Traditional style never fades. It is never trendy or modern, but it is, without a doubt, classic. Mastering the look can be tricky though. After all, you have to know your traditions. Take a history lesson by shopping a Louis XVI style chair or mirror, investing in a classic Chesterfield sofa, or wrapping yourself up in a Ralph Lauren cable knit throw. As long as you stay away from the drapery swags, pillow trims, and tea cozies, your place will stay stylish.
