Modern furniture means a macro-category of furniture in which other furnishing styles can be highlighted. The modern design differs from the classic one, inspired by past times and by the contemporary one already partly projected into the future and characterized by greater aggressiveness of details. Before the modernist movement, born at the end of the nineteenth century, the accent was placed mainly on the decorative aspects of furniture, and therefore on aesthetics, while with the advent of the modern era, attempts were made to combine the beauty of the lines with the functionality. Modern furniture was characterized by the use of innovative materials, modern manufacturing methods, exoticism, the Bauhaus German school and even Art Nouveau. The nineteenth century, given these premises, was able to completely revolutionize home furniture! Very versatile, this type of furniture lends itself to being easily inserted into different environments: from town houses, to suburban or country houses, from studios to larger houses. Furthermore, due to its sobriety, it can be mixed with other styles to create a unique and original design. You will hardly find boring modern furniture, precisely because of the possibility of varying certain aspects over time, without losing the basic spirit with which it was created.
The spirit of modern furniture
The modern style looks at practicality rather than at the ornamental and affected aspect, using both innovative materials and classic materials, such as wood, which are worked with modern techniques, such as lacquering, for example. The modern furnishings include all the elements of technology capable of supporting comfort and functionality, essential characteristics in this type of furniture. The lines and shapes of the modern style must be simple and calm, free from the weight of the great decorations, perhaps even irregular and asymmetrical, but nevertheless endowed with sweetness and elegance. The decoration can be present, but to a subjective extent and always rather moderate, according to personal tastes, since it does not fit into the distinctive features of this style. The ultimate goal of this furnishing is to create lighter, less bulky environments, able to facilitate daily activities and also room cleaning. According to their inclinations it is possible to create a modern linear style with relaxing features or modern furniture more lively and lively, with the addition of color and personality in the choice of details. Ultimately the liveable space, the order, the brightness, the clean beauty of the essential lines, animate the spirit of the modern home.
