Contemporary design is current design which basically means “of this moment.” Often confused with Modern design which refers to the specific time period between the early to mid-twentieth century, Contemporary design doesn't refer to a specific period of time, it's constantly changing to reflect the popular styles of present day design. Contemporary style is a new current style of design and interiors that exist in the here-and-now. Contemporary as a style is ever-changing and dynamic – what we view as contemporary today will not be contemporary tomorrow.
Today, we often relate Contemporary style to the simplistic, prominent minimalism, with a clean and uncluttered look. Think curved lines, neutral and grey colour schemes, stainless steel, nickel and chrome accents, glass, and sleek timbers. It also often includes open spaces, plenty of natural light, and in some cases unusual layouts and furniture pieces with futuristic design flourishes.
