00:00 Modern Interior Design Classics Introduction
The modern style of interior design was a hallmark of the mid-20th century and it still remains quite popular today. With its emphasis on clean lines, functional materials, and practicality, it can represent the apex of both comfort and beauty, and it’s incredibly appropriate for gentlemanly spaces.
01:16 The History of Modern Interior Design
decorating your space in the modern style doesn’t mean appointing it like the headquarters of a James Bond villain or like the Brady Bunch home. There are a number of more subtle modern design touches that can be effortlessly implemented in a gentleman’s home, but at the same time, we do recognize that the modern style can be polarizing.
So, whether you want to go full Mad Men with your interior design or just add a few modern touches, we think that there’s a lot to love in this versatile style.
05:01 Characteristics of The Modern Style
The modern style actually encompasses several different sub-genres of design, but through all of them, there are a certain amount of fundamental principles.
Modern Design Pieces for Gentlemen:
06:20 1. Barcelona Chair
07:58 2. Eames Lounge Chair
09:53 3. Knoll Sofa
11:31 4. Pop-up Bar
12:55 5. Bar Cart
14:11 6. Arco Floor Lamp
15:40 7. Houseplants
If you do choose to use house plants in this way, the modern style favors deep, rich greens rather than excessively vibrant colors. So, we’d suggest using leafy plants rather than flowering ones. As such, here are a few suggestions.
** Fiddle-leaf Fig Tree or Ficus lyrata
** African spear plant or Sansevieria Cylindrica
** Split-leaf Philodendron or Monstera Deliciosa
** Creeping Fig or Ficus Pumila Variegata
** ZZ Plant or Zamioculcas Zamiifolia

21:39 Buying Modern Interior Design Pieces
We should note here that famous modern art pieces purchased new tend to have relatively steep price tags anywhere from $3,000 to $15,000. So, you should keep this in mind and decide whether this is truly the right decision for you.
Famous pieces of modern furniture can be somewhat expensive secondhand due to their popularity, and, of course, you should also keep an eye out for forgeries. Helpfully though, there are guides available online that can help you to discern a fake from an original.
We hope we’ve given you some good ideas on creating and constructing a space that works well for you. As Charles Eames, himself, put it: “The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.” And after all, who visits your own home more than you do.
