Furniture Style Concepts
Frank Lloyd Wright, the famous American architect and interior
designer, once observed: “I have been black and blue in some spot,
almost all my life, from too intimate contacts with my own furniture.”
The development of furniture design and room decor has evolved throghout time from its simplist form of utilitarian functionality, to its variety of minimalist or elaborate and sometimes exaggerated furniture designs and trends of today.
Over centuries, furniture design has revealed the history of our ansestry by reflecting social living, fashion and comfort of lifestyle. Beginning with hand carved stone beds and fire pits in caves, furniture design reflected every period - from elaborate European gilded and ornately carved wooden pieces, to the simplicity of American folk and Shaker furniture culminating with mid century modern Bauhas livingroom furniture design.
Furniture Asthetics started to become just as important as its functionality, as craftsman developed new approaches using various materials, shapes and forms to help enhance the architectural settings in which the furniture was to be placed.
The most rapid and revolutionary period of livingroom furniture design was the 20th century.
The greatest pioneers of modern furniture design are commonly recognized as Le Corbusier in France, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius in Germany.
Mies van der Rohe and Gropius were both directors of the Bauhaus, one of the leading European design schools and associations concerned with reconciling craft tradition and industrial technology.
Le Corbusier began a movement called Purism, which called for the restoration of the integrity of the object in art. As the style developed, it drew closer to Synthetic Cubism's structure of overlapping planes, but retained a distinct attitude toward the mass-produced "tools" of industrial culture, from laboratory flasks to cafe chairs.
Classic modern furniture and contemporary livingroom furniture designs range from simple to exaggerated. Each design however, was carefully thought out to create some kind of a balance and flow in a room.
Later in the 20th century, the Ancient Chinese concept of Feng Shui was introduced as a popular placement technique to arrange furniture in a room specifically for optimal energy flow.
The idea, that a perfectly optimized placement of the room decor - the furniture (couches,beds, tables, chairs), art (paintings, sculptures) and lighting (hanging lamps, floor lamps, table lamps) will create an energy flow, which will help to attain the ultimate comfort for your body and mind became an indellible part of contemporary interior design.
