Choosing the Right Modern Sofa
What are modern sofas? And how can they transform a space? To answer these questions, we have to first look at "modern design." Modern design rose to popularity during the early to mid-twentieth century, and it is celebrated for its use of natural material like leather and wood—often balanced with sleekly formed plastic or metal. The goal of modern design (also referred to as Mid-Century Modern design) is to say less with more, achieving striking looks in spaces with lean, minimal construction and straightforward forms that have a touch of retro-futuristic inspiration. The beauty of most modern rooms lies in the fact that, in keeping with the description above, these spaces aren't busy, so decorators and homeowners are able to make a prominent statement with a modern sofa. These seating designs are available in a variety of looks, from leather to fabric, and can be simple and stately or offer subtle accents like tufted backs and nailhead trim.
