Modern furniture refers to furniture produced from the late 19th century through the present that is influenced by modernism. It was a tremendous departure from all furniture design that had gone before it. Dark or gilded carved wood and richly patterned fabrics gave way to the glittering simplicity and geometry of polished metal. The forms of furniture evolved from visually heavy to visually light.
The use of new materials, such as steel in its many forms; molded plywood and plastics, were formative in the creation of these new designs. They would have been considered pioneering, even shocking in contrast to what came before.
