To live classically, one has to be a traditionalist. Whether clothing, car, music, or furniture, classic fans around the world are united by their enthusiasm for craftsmanship and authenticity, for true values and timeless elegance. And originality is sought after just as much as original pieces. Those who move in different cultural circles fi nd that classic is in the process of developing into a new and versatile style of life – and most particularly in interior design: It may be characterized by worldly elegance or minimalism, opulence or restraint; it may be conscious of tradition, or it may transcend all boundaries. No matter what, it is more individual than ever before – and is therefore experiencing an impressive renaissance.
