MODERN is a broad design term that typically refers to a home with clean, crisp lines, a simple colour palette and spaces free of clutter and ornamentation. Began in the late 19th century, in its purest form, modernism reflects a fuss-free approach to life. Strong horizontal and vertical lines, modern design employs a sense of simplicity in every element, including furniture and décor designs. With the use of materials such as metal, glass, steel and starkly simple silhouettes, modern interior designs are so popular that they’ve become mainstream.
