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
