I've never been a contemporary kind of girl. A matter of fact just a few years ago I turned up my nose at just the thought of all that minimalistic, clean line kind of craze.
Years later I find myself becoming much more accepting. I'm not only accepting, but actually craving a mix of my beloved traditional pieces with something modern or contemporary. Mixing pieces is what I really enjoy. Maybe my taste is becoming more eclectic. I choose to call my taste "Tratemporary". Yes, I just made that up.
Here's a piece I admire: Crate and Barrel's Hendrix desk (below) I love it!! I would call the style contemporary, yet it seems to have a bit of a rustic, traditional flava. I'm not degreed in design, so I don't know if my assessment is spot on. To me though, design is like art, in that it's very subjective. These are just the facts...according to me. :) Although I'm not going to be shelling out $1299 for it
any time soon ever.... a girl can dream.
