My biggest issue with modern and contemporary clean lined architecture is that people usually fill it with furniture of the same style. The best example I've ever seen of decorating this type of space is interior designer Michael S. Smith's new modern home featured in the Wall Street Journal Magazine this weekend. He's filled it with a mix of antiques from his old Bel Air home and even a few new pieces from CB2. The new cement coffee tables from CB2 share the same space as Tang Dynasty horse purchased at Christie's and an 18th-century painting among other things. Modern masterpiece indeed.
