Looking for the perfect balance between traditional style and contemporary designs? Our collection of new arrivals is the embodiment of transitional style: refreshed, sophisticated and an easy mix of modern and classic, contemporary and traditional.

Update neutrals with posh grays and tans offset by pops of bright accent pillows, rugs and bedding. Mix modern sofas with rustic occasional tables and contemporary lamps. Dining sets feature modern designs with distressed wood finishes. It’s all about balance!

Let’s dive into September’s new transitional arrivals!

Transitional Dining Room

Both of our new dining sets are studies in mixing modern design and rustic style elements. It’s the best of both worlds! The Ashley Coverty set is perfect for a gray-based color palette. The round table features a distressed elm top which contrasts beautifully with the gray side chairs that would look at home on the set of Mad Men.

The Liberty Horizons set blends modern form with a farmhouse aesthetic. The gorgeous table features both hairpin legs and a herringbone parquet top. The side chairs feature cream linen which add texture and neutral contrast to the warm wood tone of the table.

Transitional Living Room

Set the stage with a sofa that perfectly blurs the line between modern and contemporary. A transitional living room makes great use of neutrals- choose a sofa in fresh cream or smoky tan. The La-Z-Boy McKinney sofa is as versatile as they come- pull out the gray undertones or play up the brown with different accessories. The Jonathan Louis Walsh sofa is perfect for a transitional living room that features bright pops of color. Let the cream upholstery anchor the space and add colorful rugs and throw blankets.

Rustic furniture adds warmth and organic elements to a transitional space. The Mezcal TV stand collection from Int’l Furniture is exactly what a transitional living room needs: industrial hand-wrought iron hardware, solid pine construction and rugged character to balance the clean lines and neutral style of a modern sofa.

Finish off your living room with fun lamps. If you want to add a more contemporary flair to an otherwise transitional space, look to the Stylecraft Corvina lamp. Simple, striking and elegant. You can’t go wrong! For a more traditional take on accessories, look to the Stylecraft Rona lamp. The ornate base adds upscale flair and will complement any rustic pieces.

Transitional Bedroom

Sleek neutrals are the name of the game when it comes to a transitional bedroom. The Elements International Capri bedroom set is the perfect anchor for colorful décor and accessories.

The queen bed features cleverly hidden storage drawers with nickel-finished handles that match the horizontal accents on the headboard. All four pieces features a wire-brushed finish, sleek lines and white quartz tops that provide the light neutral color a transitional space needs.

Brighten up a transitional bedroom with light bedding and area rugs. For a contemporary slant, look for sleek lamps and accessories.

Transitional Patio

Even your outdoor space can be fresh and transitional! The Ashley Castle Island set includes four swivel loungers and a fire pit table. What makes an outdoor set transitional? The loungers’ ladder backs and light gray cushions perfectly fit the transitional style. The fire pit’s slat-style top, stainless steel burner with glass beads and dark brown finish complement the transitional style.
