What is modern style furniture?

Modern style furniture draws its inspiration from the designs produced between the late 19th century and the present time. 


When most people think of modern style furniture, they picture mid-century modern pieces from the middle of the 20th century. Values of cutting excess, practicality, and commodification had a significant influence on the aesthetics of the time. Today, it’s the clean, simple lines, functional design, and light, airy appearance that draws so many discerning shoppers to this particular furniture style.

What are our different furniture design styles?

Here at The Modern, we offer several different furniture styles. 


Danish modern style furniture 

Contemporary Danish modern style furniture draws its inspiration from the minimalist furnishings and homeware associated with the Danish design movement, which was at its height from the 1940s through to the 1960s. 


Mid-century modern 

Many of today’s homeowners have stools, coffee tables, sideboards, and other furniture that evoke the design principles of the mid-century modern style. Mid-century modern is a term used to describe the unique aesthetic of furniture, graphic design, and architecture from around 1933 to 1965. 


Scandinavian modern furniture 

Since the 1950s, Scandinavian design has focused on clean, simple lines, low profiles, functionality, and quality materials.
