Some Favourite Pieces of Contemporary Furniture


contemporary furniture

Working as an interior designer is such a great job, especially when I’m asked to choose some contemporary furniture for one of our clients’ homes.

We don’t have a house style at Granit as we design for all tastes, but I especially enjoy contemporary design. Here are some of my favourite furniture pieces that will always look great…

Beetle Dining Chair by Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam

Contemporary furniture

The chair’s design is based on the elements of a beetle’s body: “rigid on the outside and soft within”. The designers aimed to create a chair that was both comfortable, offered superior functionality and looks great. I love these chairs and certainly think they achieved their goals.

Siena Round Side table by Tom Faulkner

Contemporary furniture

The Siena side tables are strong, distinctive and come in both round and square formats. The top can be marble (as per photo) or with a glass top too.

These tables from designer Tom Faulkner can also be custom made to meet your exact requirements. What’s not to like?

Loulou Bar Trolley by Atkin and Thyme

Contemporary Furniture

The Loulou Bar Trolley is brass-plated with a toughened glass top and mirrored base. It works as a trolley, but could also be a console too. It has a fabulous art deco feel and would look great in all types of interior design styles.

Rozel Dressing Table by Mann Made

Contemporary furniture

The Rozel dressing table from Mann Made is sleek, modern, luxurious and beautiful. It’s made of dyed Valchromat and mounted on a black steel frame. It has a drawer for storage and comes with either a rose-tinted or clear mirror.

So there you have it, four lovely pieces of contemporary furniture that would be a great addition to any home.
