There’s a lot of controversy over traditional versus modern, whatever it may be, architecture, dress, furniture, automobiles, clothing style, etc. If you took a popular vote who would get the larger share of votes? It depends on variables — your location, your local customs, etc.
Personally, I favor traditional. Why? Because it’s homey, it has character, it brings back the good old days, it has warmth. What more do you want in life? Such stuff has no depth or the warmth of traditional customs. Be traditional, folks.
