Transitional furniture's appeal lies in having the best of both worlds: You aren't straying too far from the familiar, but you have the freedom to freshen it as you see fit. Plus, because you can update it indefinitely to reflect current trends, it ages well.
Although transitional usually denotes a balance between contemporary and traditional, that's not always the case. You can mix in a few pieces from other styles as long as they don't detract from the casual, tailored setting.
If you consider yourself a Transitionalist, we've got a beautiful collection for you!
