Because contemporary style is
"of the moment," it's constantly evolving, but there are a few telltale ways to recreate this simple, yet energetic look. Begin by choosing sleek furniture. A basic wood table (a dark finish is popular now) and clean-lined slipper or Parsons chairs
are a good start. Illuminate your room by hanging a polished light fixture. Add interest to your walls with abstract art, such as a a colorful canvas. Layer in fabrics—window treatments
, throw pillows, and area rugs
—for softness. Finally, top off the look with mod accessories, such as a decorative serving tray, small vase, or wine rack. Shop the look below!
