Why Modern is Scary

Modern design has been getting a bad rap for a long time. Most people fear it because they think it cold. Design magazines tend to feature “out there” homes with concrete floors and stainless steel sofas but that isn’t truly modern, its minimalist. Modern design actually evolved as a reaction to the dark, claustrophobic interiors of the Victorian era; modern design interiors were light, airy and warm with lots of colour and character. Teak furniture, mid-century modern houses and the Jetsons are all remnants of the modern design era. Dave and Fred specialize in creating modern sophisticated interiors that feel homey, light, airy, dramatic and comfortable.
