Modern Collection

The most important principal of modern design, originating in the late 19th and early 20th century, is “form follows function.” Ornamentation and clutter are whisked away in this simple, no-fuss style. Strong horizontal and vertical lines define a straightforward silhouette. Natural and industrial materials integrate with solid neutrals, earth tones, and perhaps one careful flash of vivid color. Benches or consoles with closed storage, a glass and steel coffee table, or a set of bright orange side chairs are a modernist’s best friend.
