When choosing furniture for your kitchen, ask yourself if you want to use art as inspiration behind your furniture choices. Modern art employs simple shapes, clean lines and bold color choices. The fewer design elements, the happier the artist becomes. A kitchen chair, for example, will consist usually of a single-piece seat that sits on four straight legs. The kitchen cabinets should be in simple shapes: squares or rectangles with simply shaped handles. These cabinets should be in bold colors or white. Chrome handles are common in the modern kitchen. If these ideas do not appeal to you, your kitchen might be based upon other design elements.
If you choose to take a modern technology approach to your design, modern kitchen designers will search out the to-the-minute appliances and technological kitchen advances. The kitchen will feature a computerized refrigerator, stove, oven and other appliances. It is highly likely that this kitchen will feature a kitchen computer and a console in which portable devices can be charged. It is also likely that there will be a computerized central device that will alert family members to scheduled activities, messages and other plans or notes.
Appliances in your new kitchen need not be the most recent release from a major appliance company. While having the fancy new refrigerator or the hottest new 5 burner cook top may be nice, does it fit into your overall decorating scheme and budget? Believe it or not, a retro refrigerator, if working properly, could be the right fit for your new kitchen. Even your kitchen hood exhaust fan from a different time period can work, as long as it functions fine and does not pose a danger to the rest of your house.
If the chairs in your kitchen can serve many purposes while still being chairs they are modern chairs. If the chairs can be used as works of art, they are modern/contemporary chairs.
Most modern furniture serves more than one purpose. This is not just because the modern art movement calls for this, it is because humans are creative! Do you use your coffee table to store blankets or games? Do you use bookcases as places to display your photos and plants? You have just helped your furniture become modern furniture! To consider your chairs modern kitchen chairs, they need to pull double or triple duty: do you use them as stepstools or as small tables? You have modern chairs in your kitchen!
For the purposes of this article, we will use the terms modern and contemporary interchangeably. While in terms of art history the two are very different, when looking at furniture, there is not a lot of difference between the two.
