I love the material on the settee and chair.Where did you get it? - We have an old victorian style settee similar to the one shown and it needs an update. We also have two victorian style chairs that need to be updated as well. I am looking for material that blends with the victorian style but also with a more traditional/ transitional l style of our room. Thanks for your advice. Liz

I love this victorian modern style very calming mix of pattern amazing - I Bought loves eat and two couches in victorian style similar to your photo. The color is stripe grey and light blue but once I brought it home I am not sure what accessories to use to make it more modern light look. Because I have stripes ion the sofa should I use no pattern carpet? What kind of wall color or side table

I love the two seater! - Is there a name for the two seater underneath the picture less frames or what country does that style originate from, is it french or Italian?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to 8 Ways to Break Design Rules in 2012
Mix period furniture. It can be intimidating to think about mixing furniture styles because you don't want a space that feels chaotic. However, it you select a color palette that weaves through all of the furniture pieces, it will turn out surprisingly well. Here, a Victorian-style settee and classic wing chair are paired with a clean, modern sofa. The common hues of off-white and black bring the entire space together.
Rooms and Words added this to Ecofriendly Fabrics Make the Cut
Natural can mean bold and beautiful. When using natural-fiber fabrics such as cotton, wool or linen, buy organic when you can. Otherwise, the harm caused by chemicals and pesticides used to grow and manufacture the fabrics may outweigh the advantages.Organic cotton comes in many forms: high end, indie designed or straight from a web retailer. Designer Nina Jizhar upholstered the wingback chair above in an organic cotton she designed.
