- The chair you would most like to see in your space is:
If most of your answers are A, you are traditional. As a child you dreamt of living in a palace and to this day that dream is still somewhat alive. You marvel at intricate details and you prefer classic pieces. You’re not afraid of ornamentation and you believe that a little glitz can make a space feel luxurious.
If most of your answers were B, you like the country style. Your favorite getaway is to your family’s cottage or cabin. You like pieces that aren’t perfect, but are well loved. You’re not afraid of a bit of pattern and color. Your goal is to create a cozy atmosphere that isn’t too precious.
If most of your answers were C, you are the industrial style. You love cities like Portland and your favorite area in Vancouver is Gastown. For awhile you have wanted a loft with soaring high ceilings in an old repurposed warehouse. You love the look of concrete, tarnished metals, natural and distressed woods and worn leather. You would like to create a space that you can comfortably work, live and entertain in. The wear and tear only adds to the aesthetic.
If most of your answers were D, you like the modern style. You appreciate buildings designed by greats such as Mies Van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. You want a space that feels organized and streamlined. You enjoy the clean minimalist look of white and opt for hits of neutral colors like black and grey. The use of textures like wood and wools add visual interest. You want to create a space that is a calm and relaxing. Less is more.
