Grandfather Clock Style Buying Guide

Make a statement by incorporating a grandfather clock, also known as a tallcase, longcase, and floor clock, into your home. Whether it's a reproduction or an authentic grandfather clock, invest in a model that complements the rest of your decor. Since most grandfather clocks are large in size, it's important to make sure your space is big enough to accommodate the clock. Bring a touch of elegance and sophistication with one of these three common styles: traditional, transitional, and contemporary.

Three Common Styles

1. Traditional:
Timeless pieces, traditional grandfather clocks have an antique and classic look. Available in different shades of wood, this type of clock features a solid wood frame with intricate carvings and metal detailing. Add this ornate style to any formal area of your home, whether it's an entryway, living room, or home office.  
2. Contemporary:
Compared to a traditional grandfather clock, a contemporary grandfather clock is less lavishly detailed and features an understated style. Perfect for a modern space, the contemporary design has a sleek look with brushed metal finishes, clean lines, and neutral elements.
3. Transitional: 

A streamlined style, a transitional grandfather clock is a mix of traditional and contemporary designs. Though not as sleek as a contemporary clock and less ornate than a traditional style, transitional grandfather clocks will fit into almost any space with their simple lines and subtle details, such as a flat-top crown.
