Modern design has its roots in the art deco movement, as well as other design movements of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Through the first half of the 20th century, the design style grew and evolved, until becoming what we recognize as modern design today sometime in the 1950s and 60s.
Today, modern design continues to be a popular choice among homeowners. It’s classic, stylish, and timeless, and lends an elegant feel to any space. But bringing your modern design together starts with choosing the right furniture for your space.
In the living room, the focal piece of furniture is typically a sofa or sectional. This means that the couch or couches are the first things you’ll want to choose when designing your space.
