Our second tour examines a home that embraces a diverse range of styles surrounding the neoclassical period, decorated with plenty of modern furniture and accessories throughout. The woodwork concepts are especially interesting – at times imposing, and at other times brightening the room with a light touch. Accessories remain simple, their understated forms brought to life with radiant materials. The entire dining arrangement would fit wonderfully into an art deco home, but they're not specifically neoclassical by any means. The dining chairs take an interesting approach to the neoclassical tradition of fluted-leg chairs, using a cool spiral structure that catches the eye immediately. The modern vases on the shelf are a little more loyal to the theme, given that the entire neoclassical revolution was highly inspired by Greek classical design – they take classic Greek pottery shapes and balance them out with a neoclassical sense of symmetry. The top vase, for instance, could be an interpretation of the olpe while the bottom is more like an amphora.
