What Does Modern Mean?

“Modern” has been used for years in the interior design sphere and is usually considered a decor style in high demand, but what most don’t know is that it is one of the most misunderstood design styles. As it happens, the terms "modern" and "contemporary" are often used interchangeably, but the two are quite different despite having similar connotations.

Modern is a design style that gained popularity during the early to the mid-20th century with roots in German and Scandinavian design. On the other hand, contemporary design refers to an ever-changing style of the present day. Contemporary design will likely look very different in 100 years than it does now because it is constantly evolving, while modern design will maintain its defining characteristics. But what exactly are these defining features that distinguish modern from contemporary?
  • Modern design features clean lines and minimal decor: Unlike the heavy textures and dramatic elements of the Renaissance and Victorian styles that preceded it, modern design favors no-fuss crisp lines over curves and zero clutter.
  • Modern design is neutral: It demands a more neutral palette of white, beiges, and even shades of grey because it incorporates the use of natural materials. It can incorporate color accents so long as it is used sparingly and the colors lean towards earthy tones.
  • Modern design is open and airy: Abundance of natural light, unadorned windows, and as few walls as possible. Furniture is used to create the visual distinction between rooms and must have a purpose.

Variations of modern design have come up over time, such as post-modern design and surrealism, but all of these keep with the main elements of clean silhouettes, open spaces, and minimalist themes.
