New Year, New Look

New Year, New Look. Contemporary lifestyle and decor are on the rise and more and more people are searching for that certain look to bring their whole home together. Abstract art with an industrial twist is becoming the representative of that contemporary look. What are the essentials for that perfect modern, industrial look? Brushed aluminum or steel, natural wood, and vivid “accent” colors incorporated throughout your home bring this popular design together. Adding an Urban feel to your space pairs non traditional styles with comforting colors to create that great youthful, fun atmosphere.

One way to achieve this design is to invest in contemporary/industrial furniture. Rather than shopping at your nearest corporate furniture or home goods store, think about paying a visit to your local art galleries and boutiques. Not only do they offer one of a kind pieces, but you will also be supporting your local economy and neighborhood. Handmade furniture, such as the bench pictured below, made of raw materials will last much longer than manufactured furniture from a department store but will also make a great conversation piece for when you invite guests into your home. These materials are usually locally sourced and are of better quality. Plus by having pieces made of different materials, such as wood and metal, it will easily fit in any space and perfectly coexist with your other beloved pieces.

Another great way to incorporate modern design in your home is to add contemporary sculpture and abstract pieces to your collection. Represented through the art you choose to incorporate in your home, different geometric designs, complex layering, colors, and funky textures can illuminate your own individual style

With the explosion of the DIY craze and supporting local businesses, Original pieces made of natural materials by local artists is dominating our culture. Many artists are also willing to create custom art for their clients, which is perfect for any individual that has specific design needs. So the next time you think about finding a new piece to add to your collection, check out what local artists have to offer!
