Contemporary style encompasses a range of styles developed in the latter half of the 20th century. Less is more – smooth profiles instead of ornamentation, solid or subtly patterned fabrics in lieu of colourful prints, minimal accessories rather than big collections. Rooms are designed with abundant open space and natural light in mind, which makes them feel airy and expansive. Comfort and sustainability are key values that are important in a contemporary home.
Key traits: Straight lines, angled furniture, Browns, Taupes, Creams and Pure Whites, smooth surfaces without any carving or adornment, light-coloured woods such as maple and birch, clear glass, stainless steel, nickel and chrome, natural fabrics such as silk, wool, linen and cotton.
