    I'm the opposite, but different strokes. I'm sure it's great quality $#@! and looks well done for that style, I just prefer cleaner, less ornate furnishings

    Ya, just different styles. The thing to remember is modern becomes outdated quickly. Classic is... classic.

    Yes and no. Modern done correctly can be timeless as well. I'm talking simple, neutral, colors and lines. Classic example is the Eames lounge chair, designed in the 50s and still a very relevant addition to any modern decor

    I could agree with that but the thing is this is 50's modern:

    It just looks out of place now. Will it ever enter a classical period? Is it timeless? It's really just average design.

    Because 16th 17th 18th century European architecture and design is admired, housed in museums, etc., it has a certain level of prestige and admiration modern design has not reached. The top tier of which was reserved for aristocracy not for everyone. Also, when those items were designed computers were not used as architectural aids so it is seen as more of a "human" design element.

    It will be a long time before modern styling reaches the same sort of appreciation if ever. That does not mean modern can not look good. But you can buy modern at IKEA.

    The colors are very out of place today, but done more conservatively that could be a very nice modern kitchen today (with updated appliances, etc of course)

    Classical style has certainly been around forever and the "association of royalty" with it certainly lends to its staying power, but there are plenty of revered modern designers. Hell, everyone knows Frank Lloyd Wright. Herman Miller. Give it time...it's "modern" (and it's just personal preference)...its been around for less than a century, as opposed to several

    I appreciate modern design don't get me wrong I'm just pointing out some of the differences in the eras and how time passing also impacts view of those eras.

    Absolutely - I can respect almost anything that's well done. What you choose for your own space is simply a matter of personal preference (and often budget lol)

    There are some really well done reps, the only color combo I've seen (in my brief time furniture shopping) is the black with wood, while in reps it seems like you can get anything you want which is cool, as long as it's not a piece of $#@!.

    I'm also not fortunate enough to drop 4k on a chair

    That place I think is order only but seems to be the most reputable place to get um from if you want the high class leather. If not you can find the black ones for $695 elsewhere.
