“The artist in me cries out for design.”
- Robert Frost
What is the first piece of furniture that the majority of our customers buy for their living room? If you guessed a sofa, you are correct! For many, the centerpiece of their living room
is their sofa or sectional. A living room is not complete without one. Sofas are presented in many different styles but today we are going to focus on one that is making a comeback: the modern sofa.
Sofas are made from a variety of different materials such as wood, stainless steel, iron and fabrics like leather and microfiber. The fabrics that design the sofa can be plain or with prints and patterns. You can get a sofa in basically any color imaginable. All of these factors go into the design of the sofa. But what is modern design?
First introduced in the late 19th century, modern design was the first of its kind. When it was first introduced, it was tremendously different than what has ever been designed before. Dark wood legs and richly and bright colored fabrics adorned small and sleek furniture frames. Modern furniture is very simple looking and nowadays it has been making a comeback!
Modern furniture is built for the typical busy person who has a demanding, modern life. People who have smaller homes tend to love modern design because most modern furniture pieces are smaller than other designs. It is trendy, comfortable and functional.
Many furniture vendors have been mixing contemporary and modern design to create a whole new and different look. It combines functionality and comfort to create the perfect sofa. If you don’t necessarily like the modern colors, you can always go with a modern frame and dress it up by adding colorful accent pillows and other accessories.
