Modernist

The modernist period (1918-1950) was hugely influential on the architecture and interiors that we see today, with the ethos of “less is more” and “form follows function”.‘Modern’ style, (which is different from contemporary style), is characterised by clean lines and natural materials such as wood, leather, wool and polished metal. White, grey and black are popular, alongside muted tones such as olive green or deep blue.
