Madison Mythbusters: Debunking the Many Myths of Modern Furniture

Modern furniture has come a long way these past few years. With a constant influx of  new concepts and unique designs, the modern furniture options are growing steadily by the day. And yet, there remain some unfortunate myths and misconceptions surrounding the modernistic style that might still be holding some people back.

MYTH #1: Modern Furniture is too Ostentatious.
For the longest time, modern furniture was viewed by many as being just a little too pretentious and extravagant, expensive and loud. And while this may be true of some modernistic pieces, I think you would be surprised at some of the functionality-first, sensibly stylish designs that are out there today. Convenience and comfort are it’s first priorities, with the aesthetics being more of an added bonus.

MYTH #2: Modern Furniture is for the Wealthy and Sophisticated.
This could not be further from the truth. From small, cramped city apartments and cosmopolitan office buildings, to suburban houses and small storefronts, modern furniture will fit right in to most any environment. Granted, some deigns may tend toward the pricier end of the spectrum, but there are certainly plenty of wallet friendly options for the budget-minded and even the spend-thrift among us.

MYTH #3: Modern Furniture is More Art than Furniture.
Again, this might very well be true of certain pieces, but is by no means the case across the board. As was mentioned earlier, there are plenty of design concepts out there that employ a functionality-first approach, with the element of art and sleek design serving only to enhance the appearance. If modern furniture had a slogan, it would read something along the lines of “Functionality and Art  are not a Contradiction”.myth of modern furniture
