Contemporary – Bare meets Bold!
By definition, “Contemporary” means “existing, occurring at, or belonging to the same time”. Drawing from that, a contemporary interior design could hence include a wide range of styles that aligns with what is currently trending.
The Contemporary design style was popularized in the 1970s, where it borrowed elements from several styles like Modernism, De-constructivism, Futurism and so on. Initially, it was this blend of styles, but when it finally managed to stand on its own, it incorporated pieces from all different eras, mixing them up to generate a diverse and nostalgic feel.
Simply put, what is contemporary now might be history in the future, and with that in mind, you might be wondering where to begin with if you were to adopt a contemporary design for your office. Well, albeit its eclectic nature, there are still some guidelines to follow.
Generally, line is a key aspect for contemporary styles. Smooth and clean lines could be expressed through edged furniture or shapes formed through sculpture.
For your office furniture, it would be good that they have no trims or tassels. You could also cover it in fabrics made of wool, cotton or linen to create a natural look. In terms of colours, though neutral tones like black or white are representative, at times you can play with extremes by varying on the colour continuum.
In a nutshell, contemporary design is when bare meets bold. Amidst precise geometric spaces and basic shades of colour, select furniture or wall art that can stand out on their own. When it falls into place, everything will be a feature.
