Casual furniture styles mirror the dominant trend in American lifestyle. It is homey, warm, comfortable, and inviting, providing ultimate feet-up comfort. Casual styles often incorporate traditional as well as contemporary furniture design roots.
The look may be free spirited and natural, with a touch of whimsy or it may represent a philosophic outlook, like the Arts & Crafts Movement. Most casual rooms exhibit simple details, textured elements in fabrics and accessories, restful horizontal lines, soft upholstery, low-luster surfaces, and arrangements that avoid perfect symmetry.
