You can describe a contemporary home in many ways. It can range from minimalist to artsy to maximalist – whatever is used or popular right now. If you want a contemporary design for your home, here are five best furniture ideas you can start with.
With efforts to declutter and live a simple yet functional and stylish home, the minimalist home design has become very popular in recent years. While there are no set rules about what makes a minimalist interior home design, it is usually characterized by bright open spaces and less clutter. You only need essential furniture, a plant or two, and maybe a work of art. When it comes to furniture, they are usually simple yet high-quality to add beauty.
If minimalism does not work for you and you want the entire opposite, you can create a maximalist contemporary home. Think bold, bright, colorful, and eclectic. You can play with large colorful furniture, with various patterns and textures. You can combine different interior designs – classic, country, bohemian, and more. Just be careful not to get your room looking very cluttered.
Furniture texture and pattern
You can make a fantastic contemporary interior home design by using different textures and patterns that complement the various elements of your home. Look at the living room below with patterned wallpaper, geometric throw pillows, and a striped rug. Notice the two-level center table and the textured bean bags across the plain-colored sofa. Even the plant adds to the texture of the living room.
Art deco furniture ideas
Fancy the Great Gatsby? Try the art deco interior. The “Art Decoratifs” interior home style became popular during the 1920s to 1940s. It is characterized by having bold designs, rich colors, and other glamourous details. If you love its fascinating look and feel, you can recreate that style today with a more contemporary and subtle touch. Featured below is a bedroom with a velvet bed, pendant lights, and geometric wall art designs.
Versatile furniture ideas
When we speak of the best furniture ideas for your contemporary home, we also talk of versatility along with style. Consider getting space-saving or multi-purpose furniture. These are great for small spaces, as well as for adding functionality to your furniture. Consider getting furniture like nesting tables, storage stool or ottoman, sofa bed, seats with shelving system, and extendable table just like the one below.
We hope these furniture ideas can help you get started with decorating your contemporary home no matter what style you want to incorporate.
