One of the most important elements in contemporary modern interior design is form. Modern design uses geometric shapes, including rigid squares and rectangles along with smooth curves (“clean lines”). Perfect circles and ovals are also common in modern interior design. Modern interior design is also generally very simple and even minimal, with few ornamental flourishes to interrupt the even, unbroken lines and flat surfaces. Glossy metals, such as stainless steel, are among the signature materials in modern interior spaces. The metal may be used for anything from the legs of a chair to the body of a lamp. With less clutter to wade through and mentally process, the innate beauty of each piece of furniture or art in the home really starts to stand out.
