ARTICLE SUMMARY

If you’re looking to add a modern feel to your home or office, choosing this season’s hottest contemporary furniture adds sleek, sophisticated style without breaking the bank   think luxurious sofas in leather and chenille for a look that is chic and very 21st-century.

Luxury Lounging

Sofas go large this season and whether you opt for a sprawling leather corner suite or a contemporary fabric sofa, it’s important to pick oversize styles. Turquoise fabric and deep brown leather is hot right now and either style looks equally at home in your living room or the reception area of your office. Deep filled sofa cushions scream luxury whilst providing unparalleled levels of comfort   sink into one of these modern sofas and you may never want to get up again! The living room is the place where we come to relax, so team your contemporary sofa with natural wood TV units and shelves for a look that is simple yet sophisticated. Whether you choose the light appeal of walnut or the oriental feel of dark oak depends on your existing colour scheme and ddcor, but both look equally modern and stylish.

Dining

Add a modern feel to your dining room with contemporary furniture with just the right amount of retro added. Glass table tops, walnut veneer tables with steel bases and tables which double as pieces of art all are popular choices this season   why not add some designer chic to your home with a white gloss dining table, perfect to add a light, bright feel to modern city apartments. For period homes or converted warehouse apartments, dark wood tables with matching chairs look stunning against exposed brickwork and cast iron staircases – make sure that you tailor your choice of furniture to your existing decor!

Sleeping

If there’s one room that should be relaxing in your home, it’s your bedroom. You might have invested in a contemporary dining table and modern lounge furniture, but spend some time adding some 21st-century style to your bedroom too. Low-to-the-ground Japanese couch beds are all the rage   their minimalist style is inspired by Japanese tatami mats and features in-built storage in a stunning fabric surround. Leather and fabric beds are popular right now   choose vivid plums and deep chocolate shades or opt for neutral greys and creams for the ultimate stylish boudoir. Vibrant hues of turquoise and lime green add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral room – a bed in this shade is sure to catch the eye!

No matter how large or small your home or office is, it’s easy to add some contemporary style with this season’s range of stunning modern lounge furniture and luxurious bedroom furniture, without breaking the bank. If your budget is tight, add modern accents with smaller items such as rugs, desks and bedside cabinets to bring your home up to date!
