✔️ Modern and Contemporary designs are both minimal. Modern and contemporary ambiances have clean lines, neutral colors and a timeless elegance.

✔️ Open Space. Layering plenty of light through windowed walls and open spaces are both features of contemporary and mid-century modern styles. The oen floor plan is a architecture and interior design feature that aims to create a feeling of spaciousness. Usually, the kitchen merges with the living and dining room areas.

✔️ Furnishings feature exposed legs. For both contemporary and modern style, furnishings like sofas, ottomans, and chairs tend to feature bare legs and slim bases. Both styles also highlight furnishings that boast reflective surfaces like exposed glass and metals. You’ll also find plenty of natural wooden materials in both contemporary and modern furniture, from end tables with a metal base to architectural beams and raw reclaimed wooden tabletops”

Modern Spaces are not cold or stark. Modern design is influenced by minimalism, however it doesn’t require cold hues such as contemporary style. “Contemporary interior design styles, on the other hand, have a bold starkness in them, such as monochromatic black and white, although it may also swing from one extreme to the other on the color wheel”.

✔️ Contemporary furniture designs are curvier. “Although modern design furniture favors straight and strong lines, the design concepts of contemporary furniture are more organic in silhouette. Contemporary designed furniture is usually a blend of comfort and sophistication with a fresh look and feel. Metals, such as nickel, stainless steel, and chrome are also popular among furniture pieces boasting a contemporary style concept”, claims Décor Aid.
