Modern Vs Contemporary

Modern and Contemporary… so whats the difference?

In interior design these styles are not synonymous with each other, as many people might think. Furniture comes in a variety of different styles, designs and colours which can be generally divided into contemporary and modern traditional designs.

So the difference? Well contemporary furniture can be classed as the most current, the ‘now’ styles which means it is constantly and ever changing. However this does not mean it is easily outdated, as often some of the most prominent contemporary furniture features design inspirations from a variety of era’s. To summarise, it is a forward looking design style to go for. A good example would be, distinctive shapes, a mixture of glass and wood and more ‘futuristic designs’.

Modern Furniture… As a start, modern furniture is generally referred to as ‘mid-century modern’. It is hugely recognisable by it’s clean, simplistic and unadorned furniture design. The use of natural materials such as American white oak, tropical oak and naturals woods are prominent, along with lacquered and waxed finishes. Hints of coulours are seldom used and a more ‘natural’ wood look is generally preferred.

Both contemporary and modern furniture designs can add much additional charm and astounding beauty in your home. A combination of several mixed styles can also create stunning results, brightening up the appearance in any room of your house.
