Style Guide - Lasting elegance with Classic elements

Attracted to a balance of texture, colour and pattern with ageless furniture and antiques, your World of Style personality is Classic. Here’s how to achieve the look at home.

Vintage, antique, rustic – your eye is naturally drawn to more subdued, traditional and detailed items if you’ve returned the Classic theme in the World of Style online personality quiz.

With lots of neutral colour tones, but not restricted to beige, the Classic World of Style theme incorporates timeless hues of grey, chocolate and nautical over a wide range of classically inspired looks, from the Bordeaux – France to the Nautical Hamptons.

Our Classic interior beauty is created by:

  • Lighting – Pendants, wall lights and oversized lamps are central to a Classic look. Simple or ornate, the Classic lighting look is ultimately elegant and we like Large Arm Taupe Chandelier by One World Collection and Delphi Lamp/Pewter Finish by Emac & Lawton Lighting.
  • Tables, chairs and tabletop – Cutlery should be decadent with detail, while a dining table chair will feature a high back, timber legs and linen upholstery. Consider Cutlery French Bee black S/4 by Villa Maison and the Carlos Dining Chair by Coco Republic. For coffee tables, identify with tapered or turned legs and button detail in linen fabric, like the Maine Ottoman Square Coffee Table Linen by Sasson Home.
  • Bedroom and beyond – Classic means comfort and luxury, see it with an elegant upholstered bed head featuring beautiful timber detail in oak, or sink into a linen skirted sofa with a Chesterfield influence. New Hampton Sofa by Coco Republic or Bed Colette Q with fabric by Villa Maison will achieve the look. Wallpaper in hand painted prints of duck egg blue with crisp white or rope patterns add Classic appeal to any room. Find it at Grant Dorman Interior Products with the Schumacher Simply Charming Wallpapers or the Schumacher Gordian Weave.
