Design Series: Modern Style

September 6, 2017

As opposed to contemporary, modern style encompasses design that has its focus squarely on function and innovation.

Confusion can reign however, because modern style can incorporate contemporary elements. While some modern elements could be considered contemporary, but importantly, in decades from now they will still belong to modernism.

Modern style can be defined to some extent as minimalist, championing uncluttered and sleek interiors with an open plan design. For some it is understated elegance that will stand the test of time.


Incorporating a Modern style typically means more classic with a pared back colour palette on walls together with simple flooring. While the flooring will incorporate a neutral colour palette it can be darker in tone.

A large array of products from Sareen Stone’s range of natural stone and porcelains will fit into your Modern style but we highlight 3 of our favourites below that will really set the tone for this design style:
