Modern Furniture

Modern furniture style is often also called contemporary and is often recognised for its simple and sleek lines, either being hard-edged or gently curved. Finishes can be in all tones, from very light to dark. Traditional and non-traditional materials are used ​and often combined, and new concepts and materials are explored. Modern style furniture is usually scaled to be smaller, as it is meant for today’s apartment style living. As in traditional furniture styles, it also looks to the rest of the world for influences and Asian influences are ever present. The use of glass and steel is very popular when furnishing in a modern style, our Arya Dining Table is a perfect example of this.

One of the key beliefs behind the modern design movement is the idea that “form follows function.” In other words, the design of all furnishings and decorative objects should reflect its intended purpose, and if a piece of furniture, decor item, or decorating detail does not have a practical purpose, then it can be eliminated. Modern style furnishings and decor celebrate natural materials, neutral or earthy colours, and the elimination of unnecessary detailing. While you may see a range of colours in contemporary styling, modern styles would have monochromatic colours.
