There are so many shapes and sizes of tables that anyone can find their desired style. Many designers have also started playing around with frame and stand ideas in order to create a unique piece of furniture that offers practicality too.
What is a modern table without geometric shapes and angles?
Straight and sharp shapes are what make the trend so attractive. Although, colour might not be the strongest point in the modern category, the furniture is still eye catching and can complement any room.
Themed stands are also what the modern category is all about. If you are tired of the generic tapered table leg, then this style is definitely for you. Most recent designs have the rustic wooden appearance where no angles are equal or straight. They look like they have been carved out of a tree.
Circles are also part of this category. The smooth and continuous shape has a calming effect on many people. These tables often have two segments that are connected with the base. They often include turning components so that people can reach items without have to get up but can rather spin the table.
Expanding tables is neither a new design nor a new concept. Many dining room tables had two sides that could be separated to bring out a central piece. The designs nowadays expand in a circular direction to open out into a larger and more spacious table.
Straight edged contours are also one of the biggest trends. Each quarter of the table is at a different height thus creating layers. The concept provides a person with many different places to rest their décor items without taking up too much space.
Glass tables might not be a new trend either but the style in which they are designing now is definitely a part of the modern category. Before, the glass would be secured by decorative bolts but recently the glass doesn’t need a bolt like mechanism to keep it secured. It is secured in more creative ways.
These types of tables have been designed for beauty and decorative purposes as well as with practicality in mind. That is what defines modern furniture. You might think that there are only so many ways of making a dining table useful and decorative but with today’s design engineers this is certainly possible. Being on trendy and practical are no longer mutually exclusive. You can have it all.
