Affordable Modern Furniture
Le Corbusier would be proud. Much in the vein of Le Corbusier’s domino house, Villa Savoye, and his Unite d’Habitation de Marseille, modern designers are distilling their designs to their most basic form. Today, as in the past, modern design is simple and pure. Unfortunately, it’s also often expensive!
Check out the clean lines of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye.
And Blu Dot’s Strut Side Table in watermelon (delish!). I saw these in New York and fell in love. My wallet however, did not.
Here’s New York wunderkind, Jonathan Alder’s bold lacquer collection. Luscious and luxe.
And Le Corbusier’s Unite d’Habitation de Marseille. Aren’t the colours and geometry fantastic?
The modernists can be an elite group, but there is modern design available for everyone. Case in point: this new collection of Mimic cubes from Crate & Barrel. Ringing in at under $100 each, these stackable modular wooden cubes are a frugal modernist’s must have. Stack three for a stylish étagère, use two as a coffee table (they’re even topped with glass!), or pick up just one for the perfect bedside table. They’re perfectly light and airy, and their simple lines let modern colours pop.
Modern need not mean spending lots of money.
