Sometimes furniture can be all the art a room needs. So it is in this guest bedroom of a Connecticut Federal-style house, where lyrical pieces in neutral hues provide the line, form and finish of Cubist sculpture.

An assortment of antiques from 1stdibs dealers includes a 1940s bedside table, its drawers faced in an unusual rose-tinted mirror; a pair of Italian neoclassical stools; and a Swedish painted chest topped with silver accessories.

Juxtaposing old and new, designer Charlotte Barnes grounded the canopy beds from Niermann Weeks with a creamy Kayseri rug from BK Antiques, in New York. “It’s timeless,” she says, “and, of course, fits my favorite hashtag: #traditionalbutnot.”
