Contemporary furniture is defined by the use of crisp lines, pronounced edges and smooth surfaces. Contemporary design focuses on function and accessibility, rather than intricate designs. Heavily influenced by the modernist art movement, modern contemporary furniture applies the same visual rules to create stunning simplistic designs. Line is immensely important in contemporary design resulting proud and solid furniture that is still sleek and graceful.

A contemporary interior is as much about showcasing the space in a room as it is about displaying the furniture within it. It breaks the convention of traditional home decorating which tends to be visually and physically cluttered. The effect is airy, spacious and comfortable.
In contemporary interiors, less is always more. Each piece of furniture should stand out as individual and unique, whilst still matching the overall design of the room.
Artwork and design pieces are extremely important for expressing your individuality and personality in contemporary interiors. Like the Louvre or the Tate Modern, modern interiors are designed to draw your eye to these points of interest in the room.

Creating a modern contemporary interior is really about creating a sense of space in your home.
Space: First things first, declutter and ensure you have practical and discrete storage solutions for each room. If possible choose an open floor plan for your living, dining and kitchen area.
Colour: Restrict your colour palette to one or two main colours. Neutrals, black and white are the colours most often used in contemporary style interiors. Choose white walls to make rooms feel bigger.
Furniture and furnishings: To avoid everything feeling clinical incorporate plenty of natural materials into your interiors through your furniture and furnishings. Materials such as wood, stone, leather and linen will add both texture and warmth to your room without detracting from the overall feel.
