When it comes to furnitures, I must admit I like the idea of combining both the traditional and contemporary furniture designs together. I like those heavy woods and light/metallic materials to blend in together into a relaxing set-up.
I know that that might result in mismatched furnitures, but I guess if you know how to choose them, it will look real good. It might take some time, but I know that it will be worth it; and I would have created a look and feel that is truly my own! :)
