6 ways to find the right piece of contemporary furniture

When you spurn traditional furniture for something more modern and contemporary, it can feel like you’re taking a risk.

Here are six important things to think about when you embark on buying contemporary furniture.

1. Going Natural with Contemporary Furniture

When people think of contemporary furniture it often conjures up images of uncomfortable perspex or metal.

However, more traditional materials like; wood, stone and leather can be used to give you a great modern look, without compromising on style or comfort.

A perfect example of how leather can be crafted into something modern looking is our very own contemporary butterfly chair which offers an iconic design without compromising style or comfort.

2. Make a statement

With unique textures and sculptural designs, you can make your furniture stand out and be noticed – some of our pieces look like works of art, perfect for creating that ‘wow’ factor.

For an eye-catching furniture piece that can offer a dramatic focal point in any setting, our reclaimed teak root bench  makes the perfect choice.

3. Fitting in with your décor

Got a neutral hued home? Choose bespoke furniture in natural fibres and with a more sedate palette, such as creams, beiges and greys, and they’ll fit nicely into your surroundings, without clashing.

4. Be tactile

Alluring furniture just begs to be touched.

Look for something that has a pleasing feel, such as a warm stone, soft wood or wicker in lovely flowing shapes. 

Touching your furniture is a great way to assess its quality, but also a fantastic way to understand what you enjoy interacting with. This is especially important if you use the item everyday.

5. Choose Furniture Made from Environmentally Friendly Materials

If you’re searching for a piece of contemporary furniture that won’t have too much of an impact on the environment, then look consider the following:

6. Choose the Best Quality You Can

It’s essential you buy something that has been made using good quality materials.

The better the quality of materials and the better the design of the furniture that you buy, the longer it will last.
