Contemporary decor favors simplicity in furniture forms and often employs a neutral or light color palette as a showcase for select pops of bright colors and exciting patterns.

Contemporary Decor is casual and often eclectic, easily incorporating favorite modern or traditional pieces alongside the latest material technology.

Contemporary Design adores ample natural light, open floor plans and big volume to achieve a sensation of spaciousness which requires judicious use of furniture scale and restraint in accessorization.

As a Decor Style or Era, Contemporary means “popular or in use right now” but the term is often confused with Modern, Post-Modern, and Mid-Century.
