Contemporary Living

In our life we are constantly evolving, and this is exactly the essence of contemporary design. Contemporary style is dynamic, always evolving over the years to reflect changing tastes and current trends in design.

The key characteristic of a contemporary room design is that it appears clean, comfortable and colourful, but with unique elements used as focal points to enhance the space in a room, to inspire emotions and feelings and create that “wow” factor – much like the unique products made by Kartel, with their undeniable visual appeal and irony creating a feast for the senses.

Contemporary elements allow people to aim for more freedom when decorating a home, for example the freistil range by Rolf Benz, a range of products designed for people who love to experiment and want to discover the freedom of decorating their home according to their own style and personality.

In fact individuality is a big thing. We want to express our personality and style throughout each room of our home and contemporary design gives us the opportunity to achieve this by using bespoke and unique furniture, which add personal touches throughout the home.

Contemporary designs combine the aesthetic with functionality – furniture that is not only visually nice, but sufficiently functional that it makes our life easier. Functionality is a key element in life nowadays as apartments and houses are generally becoming smaller in size. As a result, we seek to optimise the available room by using multifunctional pieces to create an uncluttered and open space.

Comfortable furniture offering simple clean lines that blend together in today’s contemporary furniture style has increased the popularity of upholstered sofas like Sliwinski and Arflex, with their clean lines, big shapes and cozy cushions.

Contemporary design embraces a balanced use of natural materials such as the Lupus73 furniture range, which is manufactured using European wood (walnut, wild cherry, elm, oak…). The natural finishes are often mixed with steel, concrete and other industrially inspired materials to provide an aesthetic balance.
