Modern Modernists?

In the high end furniture market, the trend for contemporary furniture seems to be taking on a modernist twist, with more than a nod to the design values of Eileen Grey. These occasional tables and wine rack are by Anna Casa Interiors, who specialise in showcasing international contemporary designers in the showroom at Chelsea Harbour.

A touch of 1920/30's Hollywood glamour can also be added by teaming the glass furniture with exquisitely upholstered oval backed chairs, and high gloss lacquer macassar ebony cabinetry. Lighting is given a 21st century edge by overscaling products, and playing around with proportion to create a dramatic focal point.

The scheme can be softened by introducing bespoke rugs, designed around the modernist theme, and artwork can be commissioned to ensure a coherent design.
