    • Contemporary/ Modern
      • In general, contemporary furniture uses modern materials like glass, metal, chrome and composites. The shapes tend to be very angular, with a lot of right angle corners, distinct edges, and overall lines that may be asymmetrical or otherwise not quite square. There is usually very little in the way of carving, decoration, or other intricate details. Surfaces are typically very smooth in texture and flow in an even line from one end of the piece to the other .
