Classic Living Room Design

Clean-lined, solid wood furniture makes a modern statement against traditional details.

Designer and cookbook author Sophie Conran loves Christian Liaigre's early 20th century-inspired furniture, such as the pieces pictured here. This living room showcases a stunning juxtaposition of modern shapes and old world accents, like the gilt-framed Van Dyck and carved-marble fireplace.

See more photos of Conran's favourite things in our gallery. Enjoy pictures of this entire neo-classical house, also, in our April 2008 issue.
