    The tables appears to be Renaissance style antique. Truly one of a kind, try searching in antique stores that specialize in European or Continetal funture.

      Interior designer Darryl Carter’s unique new traditionalist style is full of juxtapositions, such as this hefty carved baroque table and classical bust paired with a stark zigzag chair. Carter often ties everything together with a palette of light neutral colors, black and dark woods.

      Mix it up. Having an open mind about what goes with what adds to the sense of fun and adventure. For instance, this unlikely pairing of an ornately carved antique library table with a simple, modern, angular chair is new and unique. Don’t be afraid to mix it up.

      Early ebony furniture. Ebonized furniture has its origins in ancient Egypt. In fact, carved pieces of ebony depicting the lives of pharaohs have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. But ebonized furniture didn't become popular until the 16th century, when Belgian craftsmen began using the dense wood to make detailed panels and moldings. We don't know this marble-topped ebony table's origins, but it is an exquisite example of the 16th-century style.

      This wood box has a pattern typical of the 19th century. Whenever I see boxes like these in antiques stores, I always buy them. They look good anywhere, including in traditional and modern interiors.

      Flooring. How does one mix items like this classical bust, ornately carved antique table, well-worn Oriental rug and modern Zig Zag chair? Through careful color cohesion and material choices, like this dark hardwood floor, which contrasts, complements and ties in with various pieces. A few of Carter's flooring nuts and bolts:• Consider installing a special padding or a cork subfloor for sound absorption. Hard surfaces on an upper level can be noisy below.• Consider the durability of flooring materials in high-traffic areas.• Specifying the direction of the flooring, if optional, can visually enhance the sense of space.

      Yes. Traditional plus modern. Channel this. Eg old oak table and modern chairs in Susie office. For simpler wood furniture may need more intricate modern counterpoint
