Modern Furniture

Let’s talking about modern furniture Toronto. Modern furniture¬†refers to¬†furniture¬†produced from the late 19th century through the present that is influenced by modernism. Post-World War II¬†ideals of cutting excess,¬†commodification, and practicality of materials in design heavily influenced the aesthetic of the furniture. It was a tremendous departure from all furniture design that had gone before it. There was an opposition to the¬†decorative arts, which included¬†Art Nouveau,¬†Neoclassical, and¬†Victorian¬†styles. Dark or gilded carved wood and richly patterned fabrics gave way to the glittering simplicity and geometry of polished metal.

The forms of furniture evolved from visually heavy to visually light. This shift from decorative to minimalist principles of design can be attributed to the introduction of new technology, changes in philosophy, and the influences of the principles of architecture. Modern furniture is usually made from natural materials. These include wood, linen, and leather. Some pieces, such as chairs, will also use polished metal and plastic. The trend toward open space continues with the furniture, which is typically raised.
