Cclassic Modern Mix, don’t you just love this combination? This mix of modern designer furniture in classic, light and old buildings?  Imagine a room with white-washed wall panelling, high ceilings, a marble mantelpiece, an antique guilded mirror and so on. This room would look stuffy and boring with matching period antique pieces alone, wouldn’t it?

Now imagine this same room with modern designer pieces, especially the Scandinavian ones, or some Mid Century design icons like the Louis Poulsen lamp or an Eames chair. Instant “cool” is the result, where classic and modern complement each other perfectly.

Bben jij ook zo gek op de combinatie Klassiek Modern? De mix van modern designer meubilair in klassieke, lichte en oude gebouwen? Stel je eens een kamer voor met witgeverfde muurpanelen, hoge plafonds, een marmeren schoorsteenmantel, een antieke spiegel enzovoort. Deze kamer zou er toch heel suf en saai uitzien met alleen bijpassend antiek meubilair?

Stel je nu eens dezelfde kamer voor met modern designer meubilair, vooral Scandinavisch design of een paar Mid Century design icons zoals een Louis Poulsen lamp of een Eames stoel. Instant “cool” is het resultaat, waar klassiek en modern elkaar perfect aanvullen.
