20th Century Furniture
You may also have heard the term “20th Century Furniture” in association with contemporary furnishings. This style is recognizable by its 20th century components:
* Traditional wood
* Polished glass
* Chrome or steel
These basic elements are combined into practical, simple, functional furnishings.
Used and seen
This is a style that contrasts starkly with furniture designs of the past. For example, during the Victorian era furniture sported such odd decorative features as claw feet and skirts to hide the shapely legs of chairs. Contemporary furniture design is intended to produce items of furniture that can be used and seen. It was never intended to produce museum pieces or objects of art; however, classic pieces in this style are now thought of as artwork. The focus of contemporary furniture design is function. Along with that is the concept that furnishing influences the feel of its environment and should coordinate with the environment in a graceful and symmetrical manner.
New contemporary furniture
New contemporary furniture is based upon the Danish Modern style of furnishing. You will recognize contemporary furniture design by the following elements:
* Style is clean and smooth without unnecessary ornamentation.
* The design of the item of furniture may be asymmetrical; however, the intent is for the entire piece to be symmetrical within its setting.
* Neutral colors are generally used so that the items of furniture can be easily mixed and matched. Generally, you will see tan, black and white.
* Wood is the primary material, and it is supported by steel, chrome, glass or sometimes stone fittings and trim.
With its clean lines, natural materials and neutral colors, new contemporary furniture fits into a wide variety of environments. The pieces are classic and timeless and can create a complete environment or be effortlessly blended with other styles of furnishings. Individual pieces are often chosen as focal points.
