Nigel Barker is a style icon. He elevates every space with sophistication and attention to detail, whether he’s behind the camera or in front of it. His chic furniture collection, available exclusively at Art Van Furniture, will help elevate your Modern style décor.
“Be Timeless and Chic”
“Like a life well lived, design should be multifaceted and meaningful. I’ve always aspired to be timeless and chic,” says Nigel. “Sleek silhouettes and soothing colors create a calm oasis where you can unwind and recharge. My hope is that you’ll style rooms are meaningful and multifaceted.”
Nigel gets a lot of modern style décor inspiration from in the fashion industry. “Style, fashion, design, and furniture are linked intrinsically at every level,” he says. “Ultimately, when you make a fashion statement, it’s about your personality – it’s about who you are as a person. But when you make a statement about who you are in your home with furniture, you’re making an even larger statement because these are pieces that have to live on past your outfit for that day.”
Create a Nigel-inspired room by carefully selecting each furnishing and accent piece for its beauty and meaning. In addition, clear out the clutter and bring a sense of serenity to your room. While pops of color are always welcome, embrace neutral colors and natural materials, mixing textures and styles. When you design a space with livable luxury, you make every day special.
Designer Tory Burch is known for her impeccable sense of style. Fashion lovers everywhere love her sought-after designs. You can imagine that her 15,000-square-foot Southampton home is ultra stylish, too. Burch’s house is one of the largest homes in the area. Also, the traditional style décor is unusually formal. That’s because most homes in the vacation getaway for the rich boast a casual-but-elegant style.

Admit it. None of us knew what shiplap was before Fixer Upper. Now we all want the beautiful reclaimed wood in our homes. From walls to furniture, every room can use a little shiplap.
There’s something nostalgic and beautiful about framing and hanging vintage maps in farmhouse style décor. Whether it’s from your city, your travels or your dreams, framed vintage maps add a sense of adventure to your room.
Most of Joanna’s designs include large kitchen islands, and the way to create a sense of coziness is to anchor them with statement pendant lights. Not only do pendants provide task lighting; they underscore the design of the home.

Supermodel Cindy Crawford has defined beauty and set fashion trends around the world. She effortlessly translates her wisdom to the art of home design with the Cindy Crawford Home Collection. When she’s away from the camera, however, her casual style home is timeless and chic. Cindy was asked to describe her style, and she said it’s not too trendy.
“I think my style is more what I’m not, and I think the furniture line really reflects that,” she said. “There’s an awareness of what is on trend, but I would not go with a trend if I didn’t feel like it would flatter me. And I feel like with the furniture it’s the same thing.”
