The minimalist modern trend is perhaps one of the most versatile options in interior styling. With masculine sophistication, low-maintenance materials, and a general coolness to the style, it’s the perfect option for not only bachelor pads but bachelorettes and even family living rooms! See how to replicate the look…
For our own take on the minimalist modern trend, we started with a sofa that looks sleek, but also requires little upkeep or maintenance. Enter the Serena Leather Sofa – an ideal option for anyone looking for the perfect combination of comfort, style, and longevity. It’s got clean lines, plump cushions, and a soft leather, making it the ideal choice for this design aesthetic.
A key component to this design is the mix of angular shapes within the furniture. The classic z-shaped Soto Chair plays beautifully off the wave detailing on the Orion Console Cabinent. Likewise, the sharp lines of the sofa beautifully juxtapose the unique oval shape of our Jean Coffee Table. All these details work in tandem to create a subtle geometry to the space that gives it a kind of intellectual charm. Can’t you just picture yourself diving into a thick book, while sipping some fancy aged bourbon in this space?
It’s also important to stick to a fairly neutral or minimal color palette with this look. We stayed within a range of dark browns, blacks, and grays to achieve a naturally cool, masculine vibe. The assortment of materials in the room – from the leather sofa to the concrete walls, to the shag pillows and animal skin rug – enhance a real “man-cave” feel without skimping on style.
Finally, when creating this look don’t forget that it’s called “minimalist” for a reason. You want to be sparing with any extra decor – just include the essentials and be selective. Find ways to keep the decor you do incorporate, as simple as possible, such as skipping a frame for your wall art and hanging single statement images with bulldog clips instead.
This style can be an adjustment if you’re used to gallery walls, bright color palettes or decor-heavy spaces, but trust us, once you go minimal, you’re not likely to go back! Check out some of our favorite hacks for achieving a minimalist aesthetic throughout your home!
