New York City is the design capital of the United States and one of the most fashionable cities in the world. This is true of furniture and home accessories as well as clothing. From architecture like the Chrysler Building and One World Trade Center to interiors like the Oak Room at the Plaza Hotel and fluid Guggenheim Museum, New York City leads the world in creative and memorable design. A number of New York furniture styles define modern furniture. Just a few of these include...
Urban modern furniture
The edgy style is distinctly 21st century. It features over-sized, low-profile beds and other large pieces; light-colored upholstery, glass tables and soft, curved lines. This design style pairs well with large, open-concept rooms and large windows and doors that bring the outdoors inside.
Mid-century modern furniture
One of the most popular styles of modern furniture in New York and elsewhere is mid-century modern. This design style, which originated after WWII and continued into the early 1970s, is notable for its free-form shapes, sleek lines and light colored woods. Well-known examples of mid-century modern design include the Eames lounge chair and the kidney-shaped Noguchi coffee table.
When many people think of modern furniture in New York, they think of industrial design. After all, New York is known for its warehouses, docks and manufacturing facilities. Modern industrial design includes iron and wooden pieces, re-purposed items like building tables from old carts and crates, and copper-tone accents.
Farmhouse design takes the opposite approach from industrial and pays homage to America's agricultural roots. Farmhouse furniture is notable for its large wooden tables, neutral upholstery colors and bright accents. This design style can be enhanced with a few French country accents like bunches of lavender, bright Provencal prints and a few ceramic or straw roosters.
