I recently visited my friend’s luxury contemporary condo overlooking the picturesque San Francisco bay, which got me thinking about the sleek and stunning beauty of modern home decor.
The dark mahogany hardwood floors in his condo were strikingly contrasted with sophisticated white leather furniture, glass and chrome accents, and gray toned granite countertops. The simplicity of the furnishings and minimal decorative pieces (with some unexpected pops of color from the abstract wall art) in the condo served as the perfect backdrop to the dynamic floor-to-ceiling window views of the urban skyline and ocean. It was quite the bachelor pad to say the least!
What I love about contemporary design is that it is not only timeless (so every piece you buy is truly a worthwhile, lasting investment), but also that it creates a tranquil refuge for you to escape from everyday life. In studying home decor, I’ve found that the best contemporary designs rely on neutral tones (gray, white, and black) as the foundation for the main components (cabinetry, flooring, walls, etc.), whereas bright colors colors are used to spotlight accent pieces (such as artwork and linens). Here are some pieces that would look great in any contemporary home.
When you are trying to achieve a minimal look for your décor or highlight other areas of a space, clear furnishings are ideal to accomplish your goals. The Simi Modern Bistro Table works perfectly in a small breakfast nook, art-focused gallery or restaurant space, or anywhere you want your furniture to be stylish but barely there. The table is made with a round clear tempered glass top, clear acrylic (Lucite) center support, and a steel base with chrome finish on top and foam pads on bottom.
Give your living space a modern addition with the contemporary style for the Blanca club chair. This striking chair is covered in high quality leatherette, with a chrome tubular frame, and cushioned with CSF foam for outstanding comfort and superior durability.
The future is here with this space saving corner desk. The simple and classic design of the Directions East Apollo Corner Desk will bring excitement to any room. The sleek design calls out for a caressing touch and three-tiers of surface make work easy and fun.
