The contemporary design style is often confused with modern design style… usually references to modern are in fact contemporary design.
Contemporary design is a current design that includes open spaces, plenty of light, straight lines, plenty of glass, metal, and wood, and in some cases unusual layouts.
Elements of contemporary design:
- Open spaces or open floor plans,
- Unusual layouts,
- Use of natural light,
- Neutral colours,
- Metal accent pieces,
- Textured and natural fabric,
- Very light or very dark wood tones, and
- Lighting design is used as an artistic statement.
Designs that are more fluid, according to the current, trending styles; however, they don’t resort to a particular style or design. These designs have a great sense of what’s currently in style so the designs are constantly evolving and carry a very modern touch to them.
In today’s time, contemporary interior designs include unadorned spaces that appear to be super clean and classic, along with furniture that is exposed from its legs to create more space. Contemporary designs are stylish and modern, super elegant with intricate details kept to a minimum.
