Anyone who follows trends in home furnishings knows that the public’s taste is cyclical. For the last few years, it was the “shabby chic” look that invaded stores and made its way into people’s homes in an attempt to make a house look comfortable and well-worn. Inevitably, however, tastes are once again changing and this time furniture design is trending back towards the clean, simple style of modernism.
Modern furniture design, which really came to prominence towards the middle of the 20th century, is characterized by bright color schemes, clean, unadorned lines and the use of nontraditional materials for common furniture pieces. Take, for example, the work of Japanese American designer Isamu Noguchi: his wood and glass coffee table is as much a sculptural work of art as it is a functional coffee table. The table top is a softly rounded glass triangle supported by a wooden base. The two halves of the base are identical and inverted, creating a sort of mirror image of each other. Noguchi’s modern classic design stands in a stark contrast to more traditional (or even “shabby chic”) versions of coffee tables which tended to be entirely made of wood, often with elaborately carved details.
Perhaps one of the most famous examples of modern classic furniture design is provided by the work of Swiss-French designer Le Corbusier. His three-seat sofas remain iconic for their modern style and feel. Unlike traditional sofas that feature rounded edges and have an over-stuffed, cozy look, Le Corbusier’s sofas are highly structured with clean, straight lines on all the cushions, a straight back and a stainless steel tube frame to pull the cushions together and give the couch support and shape. While still providing a comfortable place to sit, this sofa is far from shabby.
If you are looking to furnish your home or office in the modern classic style, come to EZ Mod Furniture. At EZ Mod, we make it a point to offer high-quality reproductions of iconic modern furniture designs at prices that are friendly to any budget. The Le Corbusier sofa mentioned above can retail for over $1,000 at other modern furniture stores, but you can find it at EZ Mod for just $819. The Isamu Noguchi coffee table we talked about is just $360 at EZ Mod while other stores sell it for as much as $500. Come to EZ Mod Furniture today to find quality modern classic furniture reproductions at amazing prices.

Most people want their home or office to look smart and stylish. If you are on a tight budget, however, you might feel the need to sacrifice some of your style in order to be practical. Your personal style might be the clean, trim lines and innovative shapes of modern furniture design, and if it is, then EZ Mod Furniture is just the place for you to find exactly the pieces for your home or office that you have been looking for. At EZ Mod, we make it a point to offer quality reproductions of some of the most sought-after modern furniture designs at prices that will save you bundles of money.
Take, for instance, the wooden slat bench designed by American modern furniture design pioneer George Nelson: while other furniture retailers list its price at $335, EZ Mod Furniture offers it to you for just $209. First designed in 1948, this solid yet simple hardwood bench features slats in a natural finish atop black wooden legs. Because the design of the Nelson bench is so simple, it can be used for a variety of purposes such as extra seating, a place to display plants or artwork and can even be used as a coffee table. Popular because of its simple but appealing design, the Nelson bench can be seen in homes, offices, lobbies and even libraries all over the world. EZ Mod also goes one step further and offers it in a black on black option to better fit your home or office’s color scheme, as well as in either four-foot-long or five-foot-long versions.

Sofas should be comfortable, but there is no need for them to be unstylish or uninteresting. While living room furniture must be functional and practical, it can also be exciting and unconventional while providing you and your family a comfortable place to sit.
