Modern lives can be quite hectic – taking care of children, having a demanding but rewarding job and wanting to set time aside for hobbies as well… That is why after the chaos of one overpacked daily schedule, when you come back home, you want it to feel like a sanctuary, a place of peace and relaxation, not additional stress.
This is why it’s safe to say that having a busy modern lifestyle calls for turning to modern minimalist interior design that is soothing to look at most importantly, easy to maintain. A modern minimalist interior is all about ”less is more” and sticking to furniture pieces that really serve a function. Luckily, the main purpose of modern furniture is to help improve the functionality and aesthetics of modern homes. In light of this, adding a functional piece such as a modern designer chair is something to consider.
A quality made designer chair embodies a lot in one package: appeal, versatility and most of all functionality. What distinguishes this type of chair from others is their pared-down look, created to accent what is really important and functional above all. This can be defined as the essence of minimalism in interior design – stripping things down to the basics and sticking only to those pieces that really serve a purpose.
To put it simply, appearance-wise, a modern designer chair would be a piece of furniture that embodies elegant simplicity. Unlike regular chairs, these have the advantage of not taking up as much space, while still adding to your “me time” comfort. Also, they usually feature straight lines and a sleek silhouette finished with a super-soft cushion. Some might come with a little bit of decoration, but that’s usually very minimal which is great for modern interiors, where you don’t want to put the focus on the chair, but rather have it blended with the surroundings. Modern designer chairs usually come in neutral colors like black, white or grey which makes them able to fit in almost any previously established surrounding.
Unlike traditional chairs which can be quite bulky, heavy and some even come with tufted back and seat and nailhead trims, modern designer chairs, don’t feature anything that can be perceived as excess. This way, they can contribute to making a room appear less chaotic.
Another great thing about a chair of this type is versatility. This means that such piece can meet a great number of one’s requirements and be placed in many different areas. They are comfortable enough for you to sit with your laptop and get some work done or simply recline in a relaxing position with a glass of wine and call it a day. When you have a comfy modern chair with tilt function, it’s easy to laze the day away in comfort and style.
Other ways you can use such chair is by placing it beside a fireplace, as an accent chair, and maybe even in the hall as the perfect spot where you can sit when putting on and taking off your shoes or when organizing your purse before heading out to face the world.
In our chaotic modern lives, having even a couple of minutes to sit down and relax can be a luxury. But if you create a dedicated small space for doing peaceful activities like reading, it can serve as a reminder to slow down. Reading can be a wonderful and healthy escape from the stress of modern life, as the moment you open a book, you allow yourself to be invited in another world that can distract you from your daily stressors. On that note, you can use this type of chair as the perfect base around which you can create your own reading corner. You can also add other elements such as a handwoven throw or a small table to place your favorite books on.
