A Little Touch of Modernity
By: Fashionista B
Do you want to add a little touch of modernity to your living room? There is some amazing modern trends happening in modern furniture. My favourite trend in living room seating is the blending of old classic designs with modern fabrics, prints and flairs. I have hand-picked a few pieces, from the Wordans Canadian catalogue, that I think match this trend and are fantastic addition to anyone’s living room.
Pulling away from the solid colouring of contemporary furniture and adding a one or two printed pieces can make a huge change to the vibe in your living room. The Candace & Basil Club Chair & Ottoman is a fun addition for several reasons.
Firstly, the print is a fantastic blend of classic women in film, featuring Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. This chair has the classic wing-back design with modern clean stitching and a complimentary ottoman for extra comfort. Modern black and white tones also adds a little touch of modernity to this piece.
Secondly, a print chair I am in love with, the Candace & Basil Abhay Accent Chair. This gorgeous chair sports a white print on three sides of the chair, with a lush blue fabric and accent pillow on the front. The chair sports a vintage low-back design with brass nail accents and wooden flared legs. The stitching is ribbed, which is a modern tactic, and this chair has two statements from the front view and the side view. This is a colorful statement piece to add to a living room, office, or even bedroom.
The Victorian Chaise…
As a huge fan of literature, I am obsessed with Victorian furniture. So I was VERY happy when the classic fainting couch, aka the chaise lounge, began roaring back into popularity. The Candace & Basil Chaise with storage is designed with pure classic design, from the tufted padding to the contoured legs. I also like that this unit has storage underneath the seat. With this unit you can add a little touch of modernity whilst boasting classic high-class styling and de-cluttering all-in-one!
Accent chairs are also on the rise. Placing extra seating around your living room space gives a more inviting atmosphere to your house. The Candace & Basil Accent Chair has many of the design features of the Abhay chair. Brass nail trim and wooden flared feet but, this chair also includes tufted fabric. The small touches like the metal ring and rounded low arm base with streamlined fabric. This chair comes in a set of 2.

Utilizing classic designs with modern flares, like prints, metal touches, or fabrics, is a great way to modern up your living room.
