Mod Victorian: Roomsets from Ligne Roset

One of our favorite styles is the "Mod Victorian" look characterized by bringing together two seemingly disparate ideas: the opulence of Victorian design and the minimalist tendencies of modernism. French furniture maker Ligne Roset does a great job of pulling off this look in their roomsets. Click below to see how they do it:

The high ceilings and amount of natural light in this room provide the perfect environment for modern, low-slung furniture which is designed to open up space. Photo: Facet Sofa.

Painted in a netural color, the molding on the walls becomes a sculptural detail rather than a distracting feature. Photo: Sketch Sofa.

In a room with so many extravagant architectural details, a simple table provides nice contrast and gives the floors and walls a sense of weight and presence. Photo: Extensia Table.

Large windows and a great view look good with just about any style. Photo: Anna Bed.

By placing a curved desk and round rug in the center of the room, the furniture takes on a sculptural quality that mimics the formality of the room. Photo: Hyannis Port Desk.

This photo is a great study in contrasts: black and white, clean-lined and ornate. Photo: Playtime Dresser.
