Why Go Modern?

Modern has long been a popular interior design style, bringing out the best qualities of your home with a clean and uncluttered style, emphasising your carefully chosen furnishings.

Modern emphasises geometric and smooth shapes such as ovals, rectangles and squares and has as much to do with architecture as it does with furnishings.

Modern homes between the 50's and 60's created depth in open spaces using wall divides and changes in elevation - modern homes today are little different with larger open plan rooms, floor to ceiling windows and good height ceilings.

Rope adds texture

Whether used in furniture or lighting, or in place of hardware, rope lends an informal touch and an element of surprise to any room. It’s particularly well suited to vacation homes, thanks to its lack of pretension and the way it captures the bucolic spirit of both forest and shore.
