Interior trends pop up all the time and we love to watch them come and go. This modernist influenced trend however…now this one we want to see stick around!If you’re not sure what we’re talking about when we say ‘the modernist trend’, then let us give you a little history of art lesson. Modernism was an art movement in the western world that gathered momentum around 1850. But what did it look like we hear you say…

Think bold experimentation and arguably strange formations that can only be described as ‘abstract’. These pieces consisted of various shapes, colours and lines, in their basic forms, and were designed to reflect modern society. It is said that this new modernist era was a deliberate rejection of former artistic styles and was an outward response to social and political changes. And amazingly it’s now worked its way into the interior industry. So you know what to keep an eye out for, in this post we’ve outlined some of our favourite modernist inspired products we think you’ll love…

So how does this all come together and form a modernist interior? Well if you’re on the lookout for interiors that have this type of style, look for rooms with clean cut lines, basic shapes, bold colours, abstract and unusual designs and areas that are almost brutalist in style.
