Contrast Material and Silhouette

The warm brown leather of these armchairs speaks to barnyard saddles, while their midcentury lines nod to a decidedly more refined sensibility. That push-pull is apparent throughout this gorgeous room—try incorporating items with mixed heritage to amplify both modern and farmhouse themes, or at least arranging pieces of both styles so they contrast nicely. For instance, have rustic ceiling beams? Hang a sleek, metallic pendant to play off the beams' more homey vibe.
