The single most important characteristic people tell me they want in their home is comfort, and I believe you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for the look you want. Good design is comforting, but everyone has a different definition of what comfort means to them. What is warm and comfortable for you may look very different from your neighbor’s space.

Many people choose a traditional style because they think it looks more comfortable and feels more inviting. This could be because of the softer, rounded lines of country styles and the warm texture of woods and soft fabrics. I’ve found that contemporary furniture can be comfortable too. Even though the materials may be harder and sleek and the fabrics plain and smooth, you can find pieces that suit your space visually, as well as give you the physical comfort you need.
