In a world where life knows the serenity of ceaseless decadence; where status and stature blend into steadfast fidelity of luxury, home is expected to be a natural extension of one’s lifestyle, a lifestyle that is known and imagined not by association but rather through the breadth of history and the wide possibilities of a far fetched reality. Royalty, today (from where the commons view it) is a rich blend of tradition with modernism both literal and figurative, and so, it is natural to be imagined by the many who may wonder, what would the modern-day royal residence look like?
For starters, it would have to be by definition – opulent, consistent with tradition yet congruent with modern-day necessities and trends. The royal residence today would be a delicately quilted landscape that both adheres to its past and projects onto its future. Anchored in this notion is the newly redefined Rococo movement with just a hint of modern furniture character whose fresh yet elaborate company will be found not only acceptable but undeniably appropriate for the royal court of the 21st century. Not to be overly ambitious, and only suggestive, the examples below where made for modern-day royalty – literal and figurative.
