What is Modern Style?
The Modern Style is usually mistaken with the Contemporary Style. Modern Style was birthed on a design movement which started around the turn of the 20th century. Modern Style furnishings and decor celebrate natural materials, neutral or earthy colours, and the elimination of unnecessary detailing.
Modern Style has roots in the German and Scandinavian design, and it is connected to the age of machination of the 1920s until the 1950s. The modern style continued to grow into the first half of the 20th century. The philosophy behind the modern style makes it the perfect decorating style for those who like simple, uncluttered space with clean lines and lack of adornments.
Modern Style leaves the structural elements of the house exposed, there is an emphasis on horizontal and verticle lines, a celebration of natural light with unadorned windows, natural materials such as unpainted wood, metals, leather and natural fibres with a neutral, natural colour palette. Natural Woods and wood veneers and reflective surfaces such as steel, chrome or glass are also present in this style.
