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.
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.
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.
