Inheriting a family antique doesn’t mean you have to decorate in Grandma’s WASP-decay aesthetic. Showcasing pieces from different styles and time periods is reflective of the way we collect today and gives a room a certain time-worn character. In this living room scheme, the geometric lines of the bookcase and side table balance the organic curves of the lamp and sofa; a handknotted rug underfoot lends depth.
