Modern style we see in all forms of art began to emerge sometime around the 1930s, when things were happenin’. Easier to design and easier to mass produce – but, oh, did it look good. And we fell in love.
Modern style we see in all forms of art began to emerge sometime around the 1930s, when things were happenin’. Times were changing, and the style of popular furniture was changing along with it. We began to step away from ornate, intricate designs that took skill and lots of time, to an emphasis on cutting excess, consumerism, and practicality of materials. An emphasis on form rather than ornament. Interestingly enough, modern style emerged as a product of convenience. Easier to design and easier to mass produce – but, oh, did it look good. And we fell in love.
For the admirers and the masters of modern style: you’re hip, confident, and maybe even a little eclectic. You love the sleek, straight lines, found in the legs of nightstands and entertainment centers. You don’t shy away from showing your love of geometric shapes in your wall art and home decor. You have an eye for interesting pieces that seamlessly mesh together to create an inspiring, carefully curated atmosphere.
If you’re ready to dive in, consider the basics of creating a modern vibe:
First things first, remove the clutter. Hidden storage is a great option, like a sleek table with a lift top. Or try a statement bookcase. With a bit of curation, you can “hide” your clutter in plain sight.
Ottomans and poufs can create texture, geometric shape, and function when relaxing. Put an abstract rug underneath, and you’re golden.
Sprinkle in bits of the style. Mirrors, figurines – pieces that spark interest, pieces you can have a conversation about.
Color scheme. Browse combinations of modern color palettes that spark your interest for simple changes that create a bold look.
Even if you’re not one to fill your home with all things modern, you can’t deny its ability to make a statement. Modern style thinks it deserves that double-take, if you know what we mean. And it does.
