The term ‘modern furniture’ is actually quite confusing. There have been gradual changes in furniture patterns since World War II, and in recent decades there has been a snowball transition in the style of furniture. The latest furniture pattern is different from a few years ago. Modern furniture today uses a variety of unconventional materials such as vinyl, tubular aluminum alloys, cane and hemp. Not only the building materials, but also their style, has undergone a sea change. Modern furniture has an unconventional design that is larger than its predecessor – a sharply straight sharp look is missing; Curves and abstract lines come in. Furniture at home today is considered a representation of the identity of the owner. Every family wants a unique style of furniture, and they do not mind the price. People are willing to go to any length to make their furniture different from the ‘Jones family’.
Ages look at catalogs and order lost furniture. People today want furniture makers to conceptualize new styles for them. The more different the style from the norm, the more chance it has to be approved. Colors, patterns, curves and even utilities have undergone major changes. Furniture design has become as important as the design of fashion or building architecture. Some furniture architects have earned a wide reputation. Some of them are Herman Miller, Florence Bassett, Hans Knoll and Charles and Ray Eames. They are pioneers in a variety of new furniture designs, which include modular sofas and very abstract lamps. One striking aspect is that some features that are considered a landmark of old style furniture have been thrown out of the window.

The wood is gone; vinyl is in it. No more dark contours with a musty wood smell; They have been replaced by bright colors with varied features such as butterflies, flowers and even religious motifs and abstract shapes. Chocolate and blacks are no longer seen as abundant as turquoises, tangerines, crimson and graphs. Similarly, wrought iron is no longer used. It has been replaced with tubular alloys of aluminum and steel. This transition is mainly due to the technology of making new furniture in the last few decades. Machine-made furniture molds can easily ship any form of furniture that may be desired. Needless to say, furniture today is more expensive to design than design. There is little handwork in furniture and more machine work. This makes production costs lower, because the furniture parts can be produced on the assembly line. However, the design is all that adds to the cost.
