The Difference Between Modern Furniture and Traditional Furniture

Interior Design

When it comes to designing or remodeling a home, few things are as important as the furniture you put in it. Furniture will determine the feeling of your house. If you opt for large, dark furniture your home will feel older and statelier. If you opt for smaller, lighter pieces your home will feel more mainstream. Besides color and size, there is also shape, texture, and construction material to consider. If you're ready to decorate a home with modern furniture in Seattle, WA, now is a perfect time to discover more about your options. You'll be amazed just how different furniture is from 20 years ago.

Contemporary Furniture Is Smaller

The first major difference between modern and classical furniture is its size. As most people know, owning a home has been a large part of the American dream since about the time of the Revolutionary War. Times, however, have finally changed, and more and more people are seeing the value of living in a condo, town home, or apartment. These dwellings offer more flexibility in a world where people are constantly changing jobs and residences. While homes like this offer increased flexibility, they tend to have less space, which means the furniture inside them needs to be smaller too.

Working with Small Spaces

While the traditional, spacious American home often boasted large pieces like armoires, enormous chests of drawers, and heavy beds, condos require something a little on the smaller side. There are several ways you can have all of the storage space of these furniture staples without giving up unbelievable amounts of room. One way is to build drawers and shelves right into the walls, but that can leave a home feeling bare at best and messy at worst. The other way is to buy smaller, simpler versions of the very furniture you're trying to avoid. You'll be surprised at what is out there!

Simple Doesn't Mean Cheap

The next major difference you'll notice will be embellishments or, in the case of modern furniture, a lack thereof. Classic furniture is heralded for its beauty. The craftsmen who created this magnificent furniture rich with the fleur-de-lis, columns, braids, and crests were certainly masters. For a great many people, however, such magnificence seems rather out of place in a small apartment. In order to match the lifestyle many people now enjoy, furniture designers have embraced simplicity. While you can still find high quality furniture, it tends to consist of clean, simple lines that are easy to match and easy to fit into smaller rooms.

Rethinking Wood Furniture

Another difference between traditional and modern furniture is the material from which it is made. In the past, almost all furniture was made from wood. For thousands of years, wood was the only material readily available that could be hewn into something like a chair, table, or cupboard. In most places, wood was abundant, which is how it came to be a staple. While there is no contesting that wooden furniture is certainly beautiful, it certainly has its drawbacks. One of the major drawbacks of wooden furniture is that it is big and heavy. Other drawbacks include it having limited colors and the fact it is relatively easy to damage and difficult to maintain.

Modern Material Marvels

As society progressed, the materials with which designers could create furniture increased. Today's modern furniture in Seattle, WA, features a nearly endless list of construction materials, and some of the most popular include plastic, glass, metal, and synthetic fabrics. Together, these materials are capable of creating beautiful yet durable furniture that matches the homes and lifestyles of today's young professionals. For the first time ever, it won't take an army to move your furniture to your new home!
