Contemporary style of furniture is often confused with modern style. There is a big difference though as the former merely means current. The term modern, in interior and furniture design, focuses on the styles from the mid-1900's, whose designs will never change; while contemporary design focuses on those of today, and are always changing. The confusion usually arises because modern styled furniture happens to be the most popular style at the time, thus most contemporary tables would be considered modern. This new genre of design takes on mid-century traits such as clean lines, geometric shapes, minimalism, and the fusing of white and neutral colors with solitary bold colors.. But in addition, it also incorporates newer styles not previously used, such as industrial chic and shabby chic. Our contemporary tables come in a large variety of unique shapes, colors and materials.
