At its core. the word “contemporary” means “of the moment.” which makes this style particularly hard to define. Dating back to the 1970s. this style is unique because it borrows elements from many other aesthetics. In it. you can see nods to modern. traditional. art deco and even futuristic design.The other defining point of contemporary design is that it's constantly evolving.
Ideally. you'll have access to some built-ins like the ones pictured above. but if not. start the process by searching for a shelving unit that meshes well with your sense of style.Once that's in place. the next step is to procure the items that will make up your design. It's best to source materials that come in a variety of colors. shapes. and sizes.
Look for Double-Duty Pieces: Invest in design elements that have a functional purpose as well as adding aesthetic value.Leave Pathways Clear: You should be able to navigate fully around the room without issue.Declutter: It sounds self-explanatory. but if there's any excess clutter laying around. it's best to clean it up.
Unlike other styles which are more or less set in stone. what's “of the moment” today may change in a few years' time. Today. the look is defined by curved lines. neutral colors and minimalism. but it may look slightly different in the future.Pay attention to shape and form. Focus on formUsually. when we discuss how to put a room together. we recommend focusing on function over form.
