The origin of the modernist style

Modernist furniture refers to all furniture from the 19th century to the present day that has been influenced by new modern trends. The modernist style was greatly influenced by the post World War II period and the willingness of consumers to reduce excesses and prioritise the practicality of products.

In contrast to the styles that preceded it, which focused more on complex decorative patterns and designs, modernist sofas have cleaner lines and a more sober style. They blend perfectly into modern interiors but can fit in virtually any kind of decor.
