Virtually everything that is incorporated in a contemporary interior design style makes a statement in and of itself. Pieces of furniture created by the designer become pieces of art. The designer focuses on details and the dramatic use of materials while remaining very particular about clean lines, wall treatments and flooring treatments. Each piece used becomes very, very special. Art typically consists of a small number of large pieces rather than collections. It is an exciting approach that can be considered minimalist. Yet, while less is more, the contemporary style encourages the creative use of both color and texture to produce interiors that remain inviting and comfortable.
