Design Trend – Royally Modern Style

Saturday, May 19th, 2018

With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot and with that, breaking many rules and age-old traditions as well as redefining what royalty in the 21st century really means through their fairy tale love story, it is not surprising that the ultra-modern interior style that’s known for its particular minimalism is getting a royal makeover. Epitomizing exquisite materials that are inspired by regal heritage and combining aesthetic simplicity with intelligent functionality, today’s modern design heavily influenced by extravagant details typically associated with royalty. This trend was particularly highlighted at this year’s Salone del Mobile that took place in Milan last month. From velvet upholsteries to exaggerated structures, here’s our favorite example of this growing modern trend.

Rossetto showcased two beds that added some extraordinary elements to its already stunning bedroom selection. The Caracalla bed was upholstered in a jewel-toned velvet fabric with extra wide and, curved headboard that’s designed to envelop with cozy refinement. The Sipario bed is the company’s first canopy styled bed that joins the decadence of aristocratic Europe with modern geometry that’s incorporated into its headboard.

Modern Design Pays Tribute to an Icon

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

A new modern sculpture showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex UK by the talented Gerry Judah rises 92 feet above ground weighing 350,000 lb which in actuality is equal to 135 real-life E-type Jaguars.   A deserving ode to an iconic, revolutionary motor-rebel, that withstood the test of time since its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961, Jaguar E-Type remains, as Enzo Ferrari described it “the most beautiful car ever made.”  Like its inspiration did 50 years ago, Judah’s awe-inspiring, unprecedented monument dwarfs anything that came before it, accurately depicting the symbol of speed, agility and luxury using 1,640 ft of 4ft diameter steel tube.  The essence of Judah’s intrepid modern design aesthetic is epitomized in the unlikely positioning of the sculpture, in lieu of doing the typical, Judah’s mammoth sculpture is standing horizontally on its front bumper, unaffected by gravity allowing for observes to appreciate the car’s unfading beauty and the sculpture’s ingenuity.

The Shun Chair by Asus

This is another new sensation that was dropped at this year’s NeoCon Design Show in Chicago. The chair is called The Shun, and it is by Chinese design firm Asus. I sadly could not find their website or many mentions of the company outside of the design show, so if you know it say so in the comments. Luckily for us, the Chicago Sun Times did a good job of covering the event, something the attendees are slacking on at the moment.

I’m really digging the design of this chair and I can imagine it might induce more lounging than working. There seemed to be a lot of unique office furniture coming out of the woodwork from all areas of the globe. We wrote about the Mobel Linea showcase from the event last week, and you know they also make an interesting office chair or two.
