今天看到好几个帖子为了 style 争吵不休。大家不如把自己知道的 style贴上来， 配上图，以便大家了解。我先把我喜欢的贴上来。文字是抄的，图片是我找的：
The traditional styled furniture uses the darker woods, has ornate carvings which give a very majestic feel. The decorating style tends toward a busy floor layout which matches the busy look of the furniture's details. Sub-styles include: 18 th century, Queen Anne, Louis Philippe, Colonial, Neo Classic and Victorian/French Provincial.
18 th century
Actually a broad range of styles appearing during this time period, furniture-makers often use this style name as a catch-all for the time period. Others break the time period down into other sub-styles like Queen Anne, Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Sheraton and Federal Style. Generally uses brass drawer/door pulls.
Much of 18 th century furniture uses mahogany wood. The lines of the furniture tend toward elegance and sensuous curves. Queen Anne and Chippendale variations use ornate carvings and frequently base the design around curves; the other sub-styles featured cleaner and lighter lines.
Federal and Sheraton styles often feature classic elements of form and ornament, incorporating mythological creatures, Greek gods, swags, urns and medallions. However, these American styles also elevate the eagle to the same status. These styles use flat, inlay ornamentation instead of carvings.
The Queen Anne style uses walnut primarily although some builders used maple and cherry instead; slipper foot, cabriole legs. Chippendale uses ball and claw feet. Queen Anne and Chippendale furniture use ornate carvings and frequently base the design around curves. An S-shaped scroll, a broken pediment, closed bonnet, shell carving are the main motifs. Somewhat ornate brass pulls are also often used.

Simple, rounded lines, but little ornamentation. Dark woods preferred, particularly walnut and mahogany. Table (and some other flat surfaces) are sometimes marble-topped, sometimes with sculpted borders.
Motifs from classical Greco-Romano mythology abound. Otherwise, the style is both elegant and somewhat more simplistic than Queen Anne or Chippendale.
Colonial furniture simplifies the look of European furniture, borrowing largely from the Queen Anne and Chippendale styles. Chairs tend to feature spindled legs and backs rather than more ornate designs.
These pieces tend to be a little more rough and rustic than the rest of the 18 th century furniture categories. Cane-back chairs and seats replace upholstered chairs, colors are deep and jewel, but include terra-cotta. Natural materials are frequently used (including terra-cotta and marble). Wire and wrought iron are also in use.
Lighter woods, simple lines, clean feel, a more stark floor layout, uses metals and exposed woods, plastics and stone, room contains neutral elements as well as elements of bold color. Focus is on the basics of line and shape. Sub styles include: Art Deco, Modern, Retro and Urban.
Both geometric and streamlined, think Miami Beach. Bright colors, strong vertical lines with rounded corners. Bakelite and Formica abound. Often Art Deco pieces are made of exotic woods. Low chairs indicate greater informality. Cocktail tables and radio cabinets are first developed during the Art Deco time period. Juxtaposition of opposing elements is common to this style – for example, rare and expensive jade and inexpensive bakelite.
Polished surfaces, sleek and geometric shapes abound as does asymmetry. Interplay of interior and landscape delivered through expansive and often undecorated windows. Lighting is often bold and dramatic, coming from "floating" lights with silver metal and bright colored shades. Clean lines, bent plywood makes beautiful curves in chairs and sofas, particularly. Often see colorful plastics, vinyl, melamine and Formica as well as plywood, fiberglass, steel, aluminum and wrought iron.
More a state of mind than just a style, retro furniture is reminiscent of pop art and Andy Warhol.
Generally considered a minimalist type of style, urban furniture tends toward smaller scaled pieces which would fit well in an apartment. The woods tend toward either a black finish with brushed aluminum highlights and glass or light, blond woods with brushed aluminum and glass.
Lots of exposed and rough woods, simple lines, practical feel, exposed walls, columns and beams are common, wood paneling and stone are also common. Furniture appears to be heavy duty. Accessories are generally primitive and somewhat minimized. Finishes are worn (distressed) or natural. Sub-styles include: Lodge and Southwestern.
This furniture is generally heavy and substantial-looking. Natural materials, particularly rough-hewn wood, natural colored leathers and wool abound.
Often featuring Navajo blankets and accessories from the southwest, the furniture tends toward rough textured, handcrafted accessories, turquoise, silver and earth colors are common as well as terra-cotta and adobe.
Milk-painted woods, muted colors in general, simple lines, comfortable feel, a very busy floor layout, primitive feel, vintage fabrics. Sub-styles include: Cottage, Nostalgic, American Country, Shaker and Mission.
Comfort and color reign. Furniture is painted or decorated. Furniture lines are simple and graceful. Textures include baskets, beadboard walls, natural fibers in floor and window coverings, and weathered (distressed) finish on wood furniture. The color palette is reminiscent of a flower garden.
Very similar to the cottage style of furnishings, nostalgic styled rooms feature the comfort, colors and decorations of the cottage style but with the quaint touch of grandma's house.
Similar to the Traditional French Provincial style, French Country simplifies its somewhat more ornate cousin. This furniture tends to be a little more rough and rustic than most of the traditional furniture categories. Cane-back chairs and seats replace upholstered chairs, colors are deep and jewel, but include terra-cotta. Natural materials are frequently used (including terra-cotta and marble). Wire and wrought iron are also in use.
Clean, spare lines. Often mistaken for Mission as they are quite similar, despite developing in different areas of the United States. Shaker furniture tends to be a lighter color and a bit less heavy-handed than Mission.
Clean, spare, rectangular lines in dark colors. This furniture is generally substantial and is sometimes mistaken for Shaker furniture which can be a little lighter both in color and in physical presence. Design features include exposed joints which become a decoration as well as a function.
Simpler lines than those found in more traditional styles, but not all lines as simple as contemporary. Transitional furniture is about melding comfort and more simplicity with the graceful styling of traditional furniture. Sub-styles include: Casual and Eclectic.
Casual furniture speaks to a love of classic style elements – and still believing that style can be comfortable without being just "trendy." More informal than a traditionally style room, people who enjoy the casual look want a room that will stand up to today's families and their active lifestyle.
An eclectic style simply reflects a love of different design aspects from different time periods or styles. The overall look of an eclectically styled room is unified by the careful use of color and finish, shape and texture.
