Contemporary or Transitional? Discover the Differences in Furniture Design

Do you have a style niche? At The RoomPlace, we’re divided: Some of our design team has been gravitating towards a contemporary aesthetic, while others can’t get enough of our transitional pieces. Learn a little bit more about what defines each design, then decide which style suits you best!

Contemporary furniture is bold and minimalistic. It relies on its striking silhouettes and rich materials, rather than accompanying home accents, to set the mood. Most contemporary furniture has a neutral color palette that will seamlessly complement any space. This is the perfect style for you if you like clean lines, open space, and understated elegance. When you walk into a contemporary living room, you can expect to be met with simplicity that is anything but boring.

The Stanton Bedroom Set offers another example of this design. Its muted colors, sharp angles, and a bold final effect epitomize the ‘looking ahead’ energy that makes contemporary furniture so special.

Transitional furniture, on the other hand, is a fusion of modern and traditional design. It isn’t overly extravagant or ornamental, yet contains more curves than you would find in contemporary styles. Wood and leather are the most popular materials for this design. A transitional leather living room set, for example, is sophisticated without overpowering your space.

The Metro Bedroom Set defines transitional flair. It is straightforward and clean-cut, but features a curved headboard that makes the piece pop. The result is a gorgeous furniture investment that will complement both modern and traditional aesthetics.
