Modern Contemporary design brings together the elements from the Contemporary and the Modern Styles: by bringing modern products (as a low sofa) into a contemporary setting (as an exposed floor surface), these two design styles not only complement each other but also are perfect to create a harmonised space. For a balanced and aesthetic space, Modern Contemporary Design is the go-to.
The Modern Contemporary style has clean architectural lines, being minimal to a fault – the featured architectural designs showcase a sophisticated and timeless elegance.
The Modern Contemporary spaces have an open-space concept, with the kitchen merging with the dining or living room, or both dining and living room merging with each other. This results in an airy and comfortable living space, avoiding ornate designs.
Modern Contemporary has furniture with exposed legs: sofas, ottomans and chairs tend to feature bare legs and slim bases; showcasing also reflective surfaces like exposed glass and metals. There is also the use of natural wooden materials going from end tables with a metal base to rustic reclaimed wooden tabletops.
Modern Contemporary colour palette adds the black, white and grey – typical Contemporary colours, – with the earthy hues and featured shades of rust, turquoise, brown and olive green from the Modern style. With clean and sleek furniture lines, this style will beautify any room.
The finishing details and furniture are in-ornate and use clean lines. Comfort and premium quality are key values for this design style; walls are often white adding to the expansive feeling, with bare floors, and if area rugs are used, they are typically made of wool and neutral in colour.
A Modern Contemporary interior design incorporates large windows, unique shapes, open plans, all in harmony with the surrounding landscape. The final touch of this interior design is to typically use natural elements such as fir or cedar and stone.
Modern Contemporary Interiors Ideas is the new book released by us at BRABBU; we believe that reading is fundamental, so we wrote a book divided into four main chapters: the Modern Minimal Design, the Modern Contemporary Design, the Modern Classic Design and the Modern Mid-Century Design.
