Today I’m going to share with you a few ideas on how to properly put together an eclectic modern décor that creates a comfortable space with a well lived-in feel. I like to create this by using a mixture of modern and one of a kind contemporary pieces.
This space features the perfect combination of modern furnishings mixed with classic touches. With no window treatment, the natural light floods the interior and is enhanced by the white walls. The pieces are kept minimal, yet every selection makes a bold decorative statement. When designing with modern furnishings, it’s important not to overcrowd the space and to allow each piece to breathe. This can often be a challenge to execute as you don’t have the leeway of pulling the décor together with extra details and accessories.
These exquisitely crafted furniture sculptures designed by John Houshmand combine beauty and art with functional forms. Each piece is simple yet powerful. Contemporary interiors are often thought of as cold and uninviting, but this is a huge misconception. The effect you wish your space to convey depends heavily on your choice of materials. Wood is a great material selection for contemporary design, as It creates the feeling of traditional comforts. The warm tones and neutral palettes result in a calming place to lounge.
The hardest part in pulling together a cohesive eclectic décor is picking the appropriate furnishings. These classically modern pieces have a timeless feel. They exude high style and are filled with character. Depending on your space, the pieces should take advantage of the structural elements in your home and compliment the architectural details. When it comes to a modern interior, less is always more.
Designed by Philippe Starck, although seen in an array of colors, the Louis Ghost chair is a modern rendition of the classic Louis XV chair. It’s chic with an element of playfulness and works well in areas where space is limited as its clear frame takes up little visual space.
The Barcelona chair is the epitome of modern design in form and composition. Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, its form exudes luxury style with a frame that is artistically beautiful. You are sure to make a statement with the incorporation of this elegant chair in your living space.
The popular Eames Wire chair is simple and sleek. The texture that’s created by the grid frame, as well as the linear shadows it casts, makes it a feature. Whether it’s casual lounging or high-style dining, this piece can be dressed up or down to fit any décor.
The Egg Chair is a chair that invites you to come in and lounge. Placed in a room, it immediately catches your eye. This fashionable furnishing, graceful in form, was designed by Arne Jacobsen. It would work well in many living spaces where wrapped in its frame you can spend time relaxing.
The insertion of a pendent light can change the entire dynamic of a space. Large industrial lighting fixtures can add an element of interest and drama. Stylishly oversized they become a focal feature. They can be traditional, modern or casual, as long as they work well with the arrangement and create a sense of cohesion.
