While the term “modernist” furniture seems to imply something mass-produced and contemporary, in fact modernist pieces date back decades and now represent a popular vintage style that many homeowners actively seek out. The Modernism art movement began in early 20th century Europe and continued until the 1950s. Designed as a reaction to the perceived old-fashioned styles of the time, modernist furniture was created as a brand-new aesthetic for a brand-new era. Simplicity and functionality lie at the heart of the modernist furniture movement, and the embracing of new materials such as plastic, moulded plywood and steel made this an exciting time for designers. That excitement shines through in the unique nature of modernist pieces. Explore the Vinterior site and discover modernist furniture that impresses and inspires.
