Contemporary home decor: 4 key characteristics that intersect style and comfort

Published on Jan 03, 2024 07:00 AM IST
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably however, in the world of home decor and furniture design, they are not the same. In an interview with Zarafshan Shiraz of HT Lifestyle, Varun Poddar, Founder of VOX India, explained, “Modernism’ in design refers to the movement that began at the start of the 20th century. It brought to an end the extravagant styles that existed before – replacing heavy textures, wood tones and carvings with minimalist features and open spaces and focused on maximizing functionality. The use of straight lines in furniture is another key characteristic of this school of design. The ‘contemporary’ style on the other hand, as the name suggests, refers to trends that are prevalent at the present. As such, ‘contemporary’ design has been in a state of constant evolution since its beginnings in the late 1970’s. In contrast to the static ‘modern’ style, contemporary home decor incorporates elements from a variety of eras and styles into an overall minimalist theme. Versatility and adaptability are the hallmarks of contemporary home decor, enabling homeowners to mix and match from a range of styles to create highly personalised interiors that reflect their individual taste.” He highlighted a few key characteristics of the contemporary style: (Photo by flipNook on Unsplash) 6

Metal art, a centuries-old tradition, added to UNESCO's intangible heritage list

Meet Mohamed Amine Htiouich, a 37-year-old Tunisian artisan dedicated to preserving the ancient art of metal engraving, recently honoured by UNESCO.

A Tunisian artisan engraves a design onto a copper plate at his shop in the souks of the medina of Tunis on December 7, 2023. The long-standing tradition, which has been practised across North Africa and the Middle East for centuries, was last month added to UNESCO's intangible heritage list. But while it is gaining recognition abroad, local artisans regret that metal engraving remains undervalued at home and suffers from a lack of government support. (Photo by FETHI BELAID / AFP)

The things we do for love: Simran Mangharam on lessons learnt in 2023

‘I asked five couples who have been together for decades what works for them. What surprised me most was how much their answers overlapped,’ Mangharam says.

Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett play the efficient and much-in-love survivalists Bill and Frank in Episode 3 of The Last of Us. Given how well they collaborated and coped in the midst of a fungi apocalypse, they likely followed a plethora of great rules.
