Contemporary furniture is a phenomenon that has only gripped the world since the Second World War - a very short amount of time considering the long history that furniture has alongside the societal evolution of mankind. Its unique aspects often bewilder the average furniture shopper however, whether or not you are learned in the details that set contemporary furniture apart from classic and traditional furniture it is nevertheless quite simple to identify some of the more obvious contemporary pieces.

This is because modern designers have been, in general, working away from the structured and purely functional image of furniture and changing the very lines of design to create new, aesthetically-focused pieces of furniture.

One of the major elements of contemporary furniture design is the appearance of a seamless construction. Where classic furniture is very strict in its appearance, in fact very structured and obvious in its construction, contemporary designers are trying to extract the structure from the furniture and make the pieces more artistic and intellectually appealing.

The appearance, and sometimes the illusion of seamlessness, is achieved through the use of newer materials. Very often it is new plastics and fibreglass materials that allow builders to create seamless furniture that looks as if it has been crafted without any toil at all.

Working the Design for Effortless Enjoyment

The seamless effect of contemporary furniture is embraced by designers because it not only is a move away from traditional furniture design but because it seems like an effortless construction.

Designers believe that if the furniture itself seems like an effortless structure, it better reflects the changing world society that is moving continuously more and more towards an automated culture dominated by intellectual pursuits rather than old fashioned hard labour.

The Nature of Design

Seamless, effortless design is also related to the idea of natural construction; this means that contemporary furniture is actually trying to mimic the seemingly easy, simple designs of nature. Designers want their furniture pieces to appear as if they have just appeared naturally as part of the home environment.

Decorators have been quite receptive to these contemporary furniture designs because not only do they bring simplicity to the home or furnished area, but they also bring a feeling of natural balance and calm. Contemporary furniture is certainly a step away from the visible bolts and screws of the traditional dining room set.

Anyone who appreciates the design and thoughtful contemplation of a truly well designed piece of contemporary furniture knows that the true art is in the enjoyment of a piece far beyond any short lived style fad. The beauty of contemporary furniture is timeless and the owners never grow tired of their acquired artworks. After all, does the owner of a Monet or a Rembrandt ever tire of their acquisition?
