MODERN VS. CONTEMPORARY

INTERIOR DESIGN
MODERN VS. CONTEMPORARY

Modern and Contemporary designs are growing more popular these days. Both styles have their own unique characteristics. However, many times, it is tricky to distinguish between a modern interior and a contemporary interior. It is difficult to differentiate because they are so similar and we assume they are the same. 

MODERN INTERIOR
Let’s talk about Modern design. Modern design denotes a period in time during the 1920s-1950s. This was a time of new inventions and machination. Modernists were forward thinkers and challenged traditional views. Technology and social norms were reflected through art and design, thus, new artistic forms emerged. Some of the common characteristics of a modern design would include materials of the time, geometric shapes, and artistic trends including minimalism, surrealism, cubism, etc.

Materials that are common in this style includes: natural woods, plywood, plastic, linen, and leather. Furniture is made simplistic with elegant shapes. A modern space will look and feel simple, airy, and clean with colors that are monochromatic and neutral.

CONTEMPORARY INTERIOR

While Modern design is about the 20th century era, Contemporary design integrates Modernism with today’s trends and movements. This means that Contemporary design is always changing. Today’s contemporary materials will be in lacquer, glass, stone, steel, cork, etc. Currently, sustainability is in demand, so there will be a lot of materials that are eco-friendly and designs will have the indoor-outdoor feel.  Contemporary interiors are also minimalistic, simple, and clean-lined.
