Modern interior design has been popular in homes, offices and public spaces for decades. While not suitable for everyone’s tastes, modern design can be a strong selling point for a home, with buyers likely to appreciate the clean lines and simplicity that help define modern design as a major aesthetic style.
Modern design is difficult to define definitively. The term “modern” refers to the influence of modern art on interior design, but does not necessarily refer to the era or age of the design. Modern design is not the same as contemporary design, which is a term that designers and artists apply to a shifting group of recent styles and trends. Modern design is defined more by its own trends, which have gone largely unchanged for several decades.
