What Houzz contributors are saying:
11. Coordinated sets. Suites of matching furniture hark back to the days when a glimpse of ankle was considered risqué.Why break this habit? Showcase your personality by mixing together pieces that you truly love and want to live with, not just the items that a manufacturer says go together.
Be sure to include your architectural details as a layer of the collection. This architect has created a spare and beautiful dining room. He's kept original Victorian architectural details, grounded the room with a beautiful luxurious rug, added a contemporary Italian table and leather chairs, added unusual art and topped it all off with a classic Fortuny chandelier.
I try hard not to play favorites, but this has been one of the rooms on Houzz I admire most. The mix of a Victorian house with contemporary Italian furniture and the Fortuny pendant is masterful. This fixture is called the Scudo Saraceno.
