Good article~! But I also fall in line with Nate Berkus' view that, if there are pieces of furniture that you love, then there is a way to combine them to tell one's own story.

The editing focus to approaching minimalism is to create focal points out of the loved pieces with minimal distraction from too much furniture and accessory embellishments.

I have an empire style sofa in mahoganey (currently being recovered/refinished), an Art Nouveau armoire and brass doe feet glass topped tables made in Italy. It all goes somehow...
