Let's talk the difference between Modern design and Contemporary design ... Modern design is not to be confused with Contemporary design. Here are some differences: "Modern design" is clean lines with monochromatic color schemes. Materials such as leather, chrome and teak wood are popular. Furniture style is very slender with no frills. Walls, furni- ture, area rugs and accents are in a neutral color scheme. "Contemporary design" is eclectic with a blend of color and materials. Furniture is larger and sometimes oddly shaped. Modern is often mixed with contemporary. Here are a couple of projects I've done working in a Modern and Contemporary style... Modern design Clean lines, slight furniture, leather. Monochromatic color scheme. Chrome accents. Contemporary design. An eclectic blend of color and materials.
