‘Contemporary style’ refers to here, now and of the future. Taking influences from past design styles it is defined by its own characteristics. The key features of a contemporary interior are neutral colour palettes, a mixture of both curved and straight forms incorporated in clean, simple settings and natural fabrics with textural features. Furniture is bold but simple featuring exposed legs, no excessive trims or busy prints. Lighting is a key element in this style featuring simple, sleek metallics paired with glass or natural linen shades.
