One very important part of decorating a home or office that is often overlooked is lighting. You can go out of your way to find amazing couches, television consoles, coffee tables, wall art, desks or chairs, but if your room is not properly lit, it will still look unfinished. Even bright, colorful and lively furniture has a difficult task in overcoming cave-like dim lighting when you have guests over for dinner. Aside from providing enough light for you to read comfortably on the couch, work at your desk, or eat your dinner at the table, lighting can also function as an important design element. Modern classic lighting comes in many forms from recessed lighting in ceilings to table lamps to floor lamps. If you have decorated your home or office in the sleek lines of modern furniture design, and are still looking for a lamp to create just the right finishing touch to your room, then the Arco Lamp is just the thing for you.
Designed in 1962 by Italian modern furniture designers Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglione, the Arco Lamp became an instant modern furniture classic. This pair of brothers, together with their eldest brother, Livio, all studied architecture at Milan Polytechnic and initially opened a design company together. Though Livio left the firm in 1952, Pier Giacomo and Achille went on to design several modern classic furniture pieces that are still widely sold today. The Arco Lamp is a unique combination of the ideas of a floor lamp and hanging lamp. While the base of the lamp does, indeed, rest directly on the floor, a long, tall steel tube arches overhead with a lamp shade at the end to provide overhead light, giving the effect of hanging from the ceiling. This playful mixing of style and function is prominent throughout modern classic furniture design as designers sought to break with traditional designs.
EZ Mod Furniture is a leading retailer of modern classic furniture designs and is proud to offer the Arco Lamp so skillfully designed by the Castiglione brothers. While there are several versions of the Arco Lamp, EZ Mod carries a version with a sturdy white or black cubed marble base to counter-balance the rest of the lamp and keep it steadily on the floor. The steel shade and arch are sure to match any color combination in your home or office. This modern classic furniture item also helps visually fill your room by attracting the eye to the arch and adding design elements where there would not ordinarily be.

Summer time is movie time, and there is no better time to see how summer movies are impacting furniture trends, such as what type of modern classic furniture people are buying. Let’s take a look at a few different summer movies and how you can find similar styles at EZmod’s website.
Iron Man 2 – This film portrays a wealthy millionaire with a serious desire to blow things up. His home is quite chic, with leather furniture that has metal highlights populating almost every corner. While EZmod caters to those who can’t afford to make suits of iron, they still provide top of the line modern classic furniture that is both eye catching and luxurious looking. For example, EZmod has a wonderful lounge chair called LeCorbusier Chaise that is simply exquisite. You may not have a million dollars, but with EZmod’s price, you will not need to be in order to buy this lounge chair.
The Kids Are All Right – This film about family dysfunction is a unique independent film that has hit rave reviews. The homes used in the film are perfect examples of how to use modern classic furniture to make your house look one of a kind. The movie takes place in Southern California and has homes that posses either a minimalist design style or a laid back sophistication. EZmod has many pieces of modern classic furniture that fit that bill perfectly. For example, the Tribeca Coffee Table is not only full of earth toned colors, but it is a shining example of how even a coffee table can give someone’s home or office real vibrancy. While modeled on the Noguchi Table, the Tribeca Coffee Table is perfect for anyone looking for that laid back, sophisticated design aesthetic.
Toy Story 3 – Nothing says summer movies quite like one of Pixar’s works of art. Toy Story 3 is colorful, funny, poignant and a shining example of how wonderful a child’s movie can be. If you are looking for modern classic furniture that is colorful, exuberant and yet stylish, look no further than the Kid Panton Style S Chair. The original version of the chair was designed by Verner Panton, a 20th century designer, who is considered one of Denmark’s most influential 20th century furniture and interior designers. The chair comes in red and black and is made of strong, durable ABS plastic.
Overall, summer movies can be a great way to get ideas on how to design your home. The modern classic furniture at Ezmod can help you make your home look like the latest Hollywood blockbuster film. Come check out our extensive collection of unique, cutting edge furniture.

One of the biggest departures of modern furniture design from more traditional furniture design is in the use of materials. Traditional furniture designers tend to stick with tried-and-true materials such as wood, especially for important furniture pieces such as a coffee table. Modern furniture designers, however, have experimented with new materials and methods such as acrylic, plastic, fiberglass, metal, glass, and even molded plywood. The effect of using these more unusual materials makes a big difference in the look and feel of a living room or office. Acrylic and plastic have the ability to take on shapes and forms that wood cannot, while also having color possibilities that are generally not available from wood furniture. At EZ Mod Furniture, we are proud to offer some of the finest modern classic furniture reproductions to give your home with the sleek, clean look of modernism.
One of the most versatile and innovative furniture offerings you’ll find at EZ Mod is the set of three acrylic nesting coffee tables. These simple, three-sided pieces come in either black or clear acrylic to fit your room’s color scheme and are three different sizes to suit your space’s needs. They function well as both end tables or coffee tables and because they are not attached to each other, can be placed all around your home or office to display plants or artwork, to put your coffee mug on when you want to put it down, or can be used as a convenient place to drop your purse or briefcase when you come home. The clear set makes an especially useful addition to a room if you want to highlight a pretty rug underneath or interesting wood or tile floor pattern. Both the clear and black sets are made of high-quality acrylic, which makes them scratch-resistant and built to last.
Not only does EZ Mod Furniture present iconic modern classic furniture designs, but they do so at prices significantly lower than other modern furniture stores. Both the black and clear sets of acrylic nesting coffee tables would sell for as much as $180 at other stores, but EZ Mod offers the set for just $145. EZ Mod Furniture also offers free shipping to anywhere in the continental US to help you avoid costly shipping fees. If you’re looking for a simple, sturdy and stylish coffee table to pull together your home or office, visit our website today to find great deals on modern classic furniture.

When most people think of modern furniture designs, they may envision the straight, simple lines of sofas by Le Corbusier, coffee tables inspired by the sculptural presence of Isamu Noguchi and even the use of such unusual materials as acrylic or plastic. Most of these items would typically be found in a person’s living room, or even dining room. Bedroom furniture, however, stubbornly tends to remain ornate carved-wood or metal framed beds with matching dressers and nightstands for most people. EZ Mod Furniture, however, makes it a priority to bring quality modern furniture design into bedrooms all over the country as well as living rooms, offices and dining rooms.
Even if the majority of bedroom furniture persists in being elaborately carved wooden headboards and matching footboards, or fussy metal frames with floral motifs, EZ Mod is proud to offer several fabric or leather-covered bed with all the simplicity of line and style that is so characteristic of modern furniture design. EZ Mod’s “Utrecht” bed features a padded headboard and footboard upholstered in Bicast leather with contrasted stitching for a stylish hint of contrasted color. EZ Mod’s CHO bed is padded and covered with dark twill fabric and features under-mattress storage for those particularly tight on space. For safety, the bed locks in place when raised to access storage. Brass-toned nails line the top and side seams of the tall, simple headboard for a dramatic yet refined look.
When it comes to modern furniture design, EZ Mod does not scrimp on quality, but still manages to offer some of the best prices around. EZ Mod’s queen-sized Utrecht bed would sell for as much as $830 at other furniture retailers, but EZ Mod offers it at the much more budget-friendly $729.99. The CHO fabric-covered bed would cost you up to $1,500 at other stores, but EZ Mod offers an even bigger savings in this case, selling the bed for $400 less at just $1,099.99.
Just because you need bedroom furniture does not mean you have to settle for the fussy, old-fashioned styles that remind you of your grandmother’s house. EZ Mod Furniture makes it a point to carry the clean, simple lines of modern furniture design as far into your home as the bedroom. Besides being a place to sleep, your bedroom should be a place to relax that reflects the modern style of the rest of your house. If you are looking for stylish furniture to fill your bedroom, come in to EZ Mod Furniture today.

Some of the most memorable pieces of modern furniture to emerge from the 20th century were designed by Finnish designer Eero Aarnio. When one thinks of the space-age styles and ideas of the 1950s and 60s, Aarnio’s “Ball” and “Bubble” chairs immediately come to mind. Their round, pod-like structure and use of new and unfamiliar materials lend the Bubble and Ball chairs a very futuristic feel that is delightful for the modern furniture enthusiast.
Innovative for their use of both fiberglass and plastic, as well as a nearly completely spherical shape that was new in modern furniture designs, the Bubble and Ball chairs were not only popular with the public but frequently used on the sets of television shows and films because of their futuristic look. Aarnio’s Ball chairs consisted of a hollow sphere of plastic or fiberglass with one side open for someone to sit in. The Ball chair, which was designed in 1963, was often made of white fiberglass and stood on a matching stand with a round base with padded interior walls and a matching seat. The hanging version of the chair, called the Bubble chair was designed by Aarnio in 1968 and featured the innovative use of a clear acrylic sphere with a steel frame around the opening. Unlike the stand version of the chair, the hanging version did not have padded interior walls, but did feature padded back and seat cushions and was suspended by a long chain from the ceiling. In spite of the clear walls, the Bubble chair provides a closed-off, more private space from the rest of the room, enclosing anyone seated within it in a sphere of relative silence and welcomed solitude.
As one of the best modern furniture retailers around, EZ Mod Furniture features detailed reproductions of Aarnio’s hanging Bubble chairs for your home or office. With a sturdy ceiling mount and six feet of chain to hang from, the Bubble chair can support up to 300 lbs hanging from your ceiling. The red fabric back and seat cushions are removable for cleaning. EZ Mod Furniture prides itself not only on selling quality modern furniture reproductions, but also on having one of the most affordable furniture selections available. While other modern furniture retailers sell Bubble chair-inspired reproductions for nearly $1,800, EZ Mod competitively prices their version at $899.99. If you love the look and feel of modern furniture for your home or office, come in to EZ Mod Furniture today for quality, prices and selection you will love.

In the first half of the 20th century, a new generation of designers and architects arose that markedly departed with the styles and artistic ideas that had preceded them. The invention of mass production techniques heavily influenced them and uniformity of design and style pervaded their work. If furniture before this group of designers had been painstakingly carved or crafted by hand, the Industrial Revolution encouraged this new group of furniture designers to seek out new materials and styles for furniture that could suitably be mass-produced and ultimately change the way that people viewed their home furnishings. No longer content with carved wood tables or chairs and ornately brocaded sofas, this group of modern furniture designers explored the uses of steel, plastic and even molded plywood in the making of furniture for the home or office. One of the most famous designers from among this group was French-Swiss designer, architect and urban planner Charles-Eduoard Jeanneret-Gris, known to us by the name Le Corbusier.
Born in Switzerland in 1887, Le Corbusier is perhaps most famous among furniture designers for his steel and leather sofas. One of modern furniture design’s most iconic pieces, Le Corbusier’s sofa is constructed of black leather squarish cushions supported by a shiny, steel tube frame. The overall impression one has of Le Corbusier’s famous sofa is that of a box with portions cut out suitable for sitting on. By the mid-1920s, Le Corbusier had already written much on urban planning, with his writing focusing on the stark, simple lines and functionality so familiar to industrial spaces. Once Le Corbusier had conceived this particular style of housing for urban areas, he set about designing furnishings that would match it with a disciplined simplicity of line and function. Le Corbusier’s sofa was first produced in 1929 and instantly became iconic. Concerned much more with functionality, the sofas were sturdy and simple enough to match nearly any décor.
Reproductions of this sofa are still prized today and are available in stores such as EZ Mod Furniture. EZ Mod also carries this modern furniture classic in loveseat or chair versions and the entire set is available in either black or white leather. And where most modern furniture stores would bring Le Corbusier’s sofa to you for as much as $1,119, EZ Mod Furniture features it for a much more budget-friendly $819.
If you are looking for furnish your home or office in with innovative, clean and stylish modern furniture, come to EZ Mod Furniture today.
