Color Blocking Is Easy as 1, 2, 3

Color blocking is one trend found in modern design that has always been my favorite part of the design process, specifically when it is one pop of color amid a sea of neutral tones.  This is where you have the liberty to set the tone of the room however you wish based on your color choice. It can be introduced with a Cerulean duvet for a calming bedroom setting, or with a sprightly Tangerine Orange accent wall in the living room for entertaining. 

One of the easiest ways to maintain the modern and minimalist influence throughout your home is using the color blocking method; the hardest part is to not overthink it.  Best of all, if you find yourself needing to redecorate (for instance, if you suddenly need to make a room into a nursery in 9 months or less), with your neutral color palette already in place, changing your space is as simple as removing the main color for softer blues or pinks. 

Whether you are searching for your modern classic furniture in a neutral shade or in a vibrant pop of color, you are certain to find it among our 20 different exclusive boucle fabric colors.  Our boucle fabrics are stain resistant and UV resistant to ensure many years of stylish living.

Art Deco in the 21st Century

Art Deco began in the early 1920s and still remains a celebrated style of architecture and design.  There are many attributes that define the art deco style, the most distinct being the use of geometric shapes, symmetry, a pattern of three used throughout and modern materials, like stainless steel.

In addition to our unparalleled reproductions, we also have our own Modern Classics Exclusive furniture designs that put to use the celebrated Art Deco Style.  Pictured here is our Art Deco D Chair that was inspired by chairs found in the San Francisco train station and serves as a perfect accent chair in any home or office.

You can see it and everything we have to offer in our BellinghamChicago or Dallas showrooms!

Adding A Touch of Scandinavian Modern Style

One distinguishing factor among the iconic furniture designs that emerged during the Scandinavian age of Modernism is the balance of traditional and modern. By applying traditional Scandinavian woodworking techniques to finely constructed furniture made up of clean lines, these designs possess all the sophistication of  modernism and with the level of comfort only felt at home

the original models and are available in lounge chair, love seat and sofa versions:

Upon taking a seat in our Mogenson Model 2214 Chair Reproduction, you may never want to get up.  Original designed by Borge Mogenson as part of his 2300 Series, our reproduction uses a premium leather upholstery with back and seat cushions filled with foam and dacron, resulting in an irresistibly luxurious seat.
