3 min

Do you want to make your apartment come alive with trendy and modern furniture?

If so, you’ve come to the right place!

We’re about to reveal five modern design stores that sell modern furniture and other home elements.

But before we do that, we thought we’d give you a brief introduction to “modern interior design.”

The modern design trend dates back to the modern art movement from the 1920s to the 1950s or thereabouts.

Modern decorating grew out of the beginning of the 20th century, but today is primarily known as mid-century modern and postmodern.

If you’ve seen clean straight lines, bold accent colors, and the use of metal, that’s all considered modern design!

Furnishing your apartment with modern design is a lot of fun, and you get to be highly creative!

So if you’re ready to hunt for modern furniture, check out these five websites where you can find the furniture of your dreams.

1. All Modern

All Modern is a division of the home retail giant Wayfair.

On their site, you’ll find lighting, bedroom furniture, dining room furniture, and more. All ideal if you’re looking for minimalist yet stylish decor.

All Modern has the best of modern designs, from Scandinavian to Farmhouse. For example, their Modern Farmhouse furniture looks inviting and lived-in, and that’s a good thing.

Just check out the accent furniture made from woven fibers and reclaimed wood. They’re stunning!  What’s more, their dining and kitchen furniture consists of beautiful wood chairs, tables, and other home elements.
