Contemporary Furniture Styles are a Blend of the Old and New

There is a fine line between contemporary and modern furniture, so it's important to know exactly what you want when you search for a piece by style. Contemporary furniture is a blend of classic styles that have stood the test of time blended with current tastes and function. Traditionally, contemporary pieces will combine influences from many furniture styles, trends, and even technologies but don't generally keep to the strict design philosophies you'll see in the traditional styles of furniture.

Some of the most popular contemporary design styles include Gothic Revival, Mission, Art Deco, and Art Nouveau. Most contemporary styles are subtle and include an urban feeling in them. The contemporary design sensibility tends towards furniture designs with slight curves, clean lines, and soft edges. Fabrics are usually solid colors or subtle patterns. Wood embellishments are generally geometric as opposed to ornate wood carvings reminiscent of the royal European furniture designers.

Designing a true contemporary home decor can be hard. Start by using neutral colors for your larger pieces with bold and bright accent pieces. Mixing-and-matching the texture of fabrics - silk, velvet, linen, and wool - will give great contrast with accent pillows or bed spreads. Stainless steel or chrome lamps lend a great touch of simplicity to your contemporary decor.
