style characteristics

freedom and casualness

the United States is a country that advocates freedom, which has also created its free and casual uninhibited lifestyle without too many artificial modifications and constraints. Inadvertently, it has also achieved another kind of casual romance, and the American culture is a vein dominated by transplanted culture, which has the luxury and nobility of Europa, but also combines the uninhibited soil and water of the American continent, The result of this combination is to get rid of many fetters, but also to find a new nostalgic, noble and atmospheric style of cultural foundation without losing freedom and casualness

pay attention to simplicity and practicality

because the style is relatively simple, the details are particularly important. American furniture generally adopts walnut and maple. In order to highlight the characteristics of wood itself, its texture itself becomes a kind of decoration. It can produce different light sensations at different angles. This makes American furniture more attractive than golden European furniture. Another important feature of American furniture is its strong practicality, such as a table specially used for sewing, a large dining table that can be lengthened or folded into several small tables, etc. In addition, the hardware decorations in American furniture are exquisite, and there are hundreds of shapes in a small handle. It is these gadgets that make American furniture more stylish

We should also have powerful, simple and durable kitchen equipment, such as residue crusher under the sink, oven, etc. On the other side of the kitchen opposite to the restaurant, there is usually a small light dining area. The multifunctional kitchen is also reflected in the fact that interpersonal communication within the family is often carried out here. These two areas are connected with the living room to form a large area, which has become the focus of family life

pay attention to warmth
