Designer furniture - contemporary or modern?

The style of furniture in your home completely reflects on your personal taste. When you invest money in proper furniture you not only give your home that special look but also create a favourable impression in the minds of all your guests. Some of the finest modern furniture today is designer furniture. However, when it comes to choosing designer furniture you can choose whether you want something modern or something antique. You get some great options in both these categories and if you choose carefully you can get some great stuff.

It is actually very difficult to choose the type of designer furniture you want – antique furniture or modern furniture. There are such good looking pieces in both the categories that you almost feel that choosing one in favour of the other is akin to doing injustice to the one you rejected. And it is not wise to mix the two because of the complete difference in the way they look. However, there are some tips you can use to choose between antique and modern designer furniture.

First of all, look at the amount of space you have inside your home. If the space is ample then buying antique design furniture makes more sense. These items of furniture are typically larger in size and they also occupy a lot of visual space. So, if the area inside the room is not huge, using antique furniture could make the room too crowded. When you have limited space then buying designer, modern furniture is a better option.

Secondly, if you need to move from one house to another from time to time then buying modern furniture in the designer range is a better option. Although both antique and modern designer furniture today are quite lightweight, the former could be that bit heavier to carry around.

However, there is one thing common between antique and modern designer furniture. Whatever you choose, ensure that you make your furniture the centrepiece of the room. To do this you should plan your furniture first and then create the decor around it. Some people even paint their rooms around the designer furniture they buy. This makes a lot of sense because designer furniture is definitely more expensive than normal modern furniture and you would naturally want to make your furniture the showpiece of your rooms.

Australia has some fantastic online furniture stores that sell both antique designer furniture and modern furniture designed by some fine furniture designers. Some of these websites also sell replicas of designer furniture that give your rooms the same grand look as original designer furniture does. Noguchi coffee tables and Eames chairs for offices are typical examples of these replicas.

Choose your furniture carefully and you could really give your home that visual edge. You will fall so much in love with your home that you would want to spend more time inside and also invite people over. Whether you choose antique designer furniture or designer modern furniture, be careful buying and you will create a beautiful home.
