French term or phrase:style transition
In the context of an inventory of furniture which is going to be restored, this term describes a bedside table
“Transitional blends Contemporary with traditional without leaning too heavily in either direction. Apparently, most people's design preferences also don't lean too heavily in either direction, because Transitional seems to be the most popular kitchen style in the United States today.”
Term used to classify an artistic style that is thought to be in the process of evolution from one established style to another. It was, and to some extent still is, applied especially to European art and architecture from the late 12th century to the mid-13th, as styles changed from Romanesque to Gothic.”
Term that is (somewhat confusingly) applied with two distinct meanings to certain aspects of European art in the late 12th cent. and early 13th cent. In architectural writing it is applied to buildings that manifest distinct features of both the Romanesque and Gothic styles--in its crudest terms, those that use both round and pointed arches. In the study of the figurative arts, the term is applied to certain works that are distinguished from both Romanesque and Gothic by their strongly antique flavour and fluent forms: Nicholas of Verdun's Klosterneuberg altar is a prime example."
I hope this is sufficient.
