Modern Interior Design for Your Los Angeles Home

Modern design is actually part of a larger movement known as “modernism”  which rejected the ornate detailing of earlier periods. Modern design embraces clean lined forms and an adherence to a certain  rigor and discipline, that distinguishes it from all other styles. Yet modern doesn’t have to mean cutting edge or cold, it’s often warm, spare, yet tranquil. The type of materials, whether metal, stone, glass or concrete, are utilized in very precise, deliberate ways. Minimalism and sleekness are characteristics of modern design, combined with an atmosphere of simplicity and ease.
