Contemporary furniture reflects the latest design trends, so it’s always changing. It has evolved continuously since the 1970s, pulling from other styles including modern and minimalist. Today’s contemporary style is marked by curved lines, lots of textures, and natural materials like wood, stone, and jute. It favors an uncluttered layout, plenty of natural light, and a primarily neutral color palette with pops of bold. It differs from modern, which is an early- to mid-1900s style marked by straight lines, smooth finishes, geometric shapes, and functionality.
