Top 10 Modern Furniture Designers

Savvy consumers are finding that when it comes to home furnishings, the Los Angeles based furniture company, Viesso, is making its way to the top of the ‘must go to’ list. With a fresh modern attitude towards style and contemporary design, the company is also a forward mover and shaker when it comes to the online shopping experience. Encouraging buyers to become more proactive in the design process, their site provides a myriad of options when it comes to customizing pieces to accommodate each individual’s unique needs.

Featuring their own designs, Viesso carries other innovative lines dedicated to the modern lifestyle. Here is a partial list of furniture designers featured in their home and online showroom:

Customized Green Furniture

Viesso’s own furniture line consists of exclusive pieces created and built in their Los Angeles location. Offering customized options and a green perspective, the company offers unique solutions for functional and comfortable living. One of its signature pieces is the Nein Modular Sectional, a combination of pieces that form a seamless whole that can be reconfigured as desired. With over 500 fabric options, as well as choices for cushion fillings and leg styles, the Nein Modular is a perfect choice for an apartment, loft, house, or office.

Bensen, the manufacturing and design company founded in 1981, represents timeless pieces that are created with an intelligence that makes them appropriate for any setting. The vision that forms the basis of each piece of furniture is evident in a functionality combined with clean and beautiful lines. Their Large Homework Desk, for example, provides a fresh and versatile approach to the conventional desk. Available in two sizes, it can be ordered with single, double, or file-sized drawers that seem to float beneath the clear glass surface. The desk includes an accessories drawer to accommodate cables and computer accessories, helping to keep the area clear and free of excess. With legs made in mirror-finished chrome or gunmetal gray powder-coated steel with clear polycarbonate feet, the desk is a tribute to modernity and cleanliness.

Design House Stockholm takes advantage of collective creativity as members of its team contribute to the look and feel of their ever-evolving furniture styles. Each piece conveys an individual personality and character, providing customers with art pieces that are as beautiful as they are functional. A perfect example is their Twist Table, a combined table and shelf that has a futuristic feel as the shelves rotate around a central axis. Providing storage space that is ideal for small areas, the Twist Table works perfectly in a small apartment or office area. The piece was designed by Design House member Philip Edis, who was inspired by clowns spinning hula-hoops, reinterpreting this image into a unique and practical form.

Using Reclaime Wood for Tables

DeWulf uses an advanced technique that takes concrete into the realm of modern elegance. Their Scaffolding Coffee Table, with legs made from reclaimed wood, is a solid concrete slab that works magnificently as an elegant coffee table. With a soft, velvety feel, the top comes unadorned or with an exquisite design. Either way, this piece measuring 54” long, 30” deep, 16” high, and weighing 150 pounds creates a powerful yet subtle statement in the home.

Fermob is one of the leading new design firms for outdoor lounge furniture, capitalizing on a playful approach to goofing off. Creating pieces that go perfectly on a terrace, patio, balcony, or backyard, each piece comes in bright colors that mirror the creative spirit with which they were made. Their Bistro Folding Chaise Lounge makes for a great way to de-stress, with its beautiful bright or subtle colors including magenta, yellow, and turquoise.

Gus Modern is a furniture design company that prides itself on simple forms inspired by everyday objects. Whether it is furniture, an accent piece, or various types of accessories, the firm’s consistent dedication to making contemporary items based on mid-century concepts has made them a best seller with customers looking for a chic and functional style. The Spencer Chair is a perfect example of their approach to comfort, sporting a blind tufted seat and back cushion, a stainless steel base that is cleverly recessed from sides to give the chair the appearance of floating in the air, and elegantly piped edges on the frame and cushions. The chair comes with two square bolsters and boasts beautiful upholstery in natural colors.

Reusing Recyclable Waste for Elegant Furniture

Innovation is rapidly becoming one of the best sellers for furniture that marries function, style, and comfort. Their name says it all, and this along with their experience is what makes them industry specialists, especially when it comes to reuse of recyclable waste such as plastic metal, plastic and cardboard. Their Unfurl Sofa Bed is a classically cool modern convertible sofa that adds a sophisticated style to any space. Upholstered in Heavy Natch natural fabric or Heavy Natch in brown/black, it comes with a matte black powder-coated metal frame and classy walnut stained wood legs. Its high quality steel frame and pocket springs with a layer of foam and layer of heavy fiber fill make it an easy choice for customers looking for a beautiful sofa that folds down easily for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Mamagreen is a signature company known for its modern outdoor furniture. Creative design combined with serious craftsmanship gives birth to durable, easy to clean material such as reclaimed teak and marine-grade steel. The Rio 2 Seater is a great example of a comfortable, large couch style piece with Stamskin nautical leather cushions that require hardly any maintenance. Paired with the Rio 3 and 1 seaters, along with the Rio Coffee Table, you have all you need for a great day lounging out of doors.

Modloft proudly proves that innovation does not have to be expensive. Offering some of the highest quality pieces for the budget minded, the Jubilee Ottoman and Lounge Chair are just two items that have charmed customers looking for something unique, functional, and contemporary without having to spend and arm and a leg.
This list would never be complete without including sohoConcept, a residential and commercial brand that beautifully exhibits its concepts in elegantly shaped designs that define modernity. Their Eiffel Wire dining chair is a quintessential piece, with a
comfortable upholstered seat and backrest, a solid chromed steel wire base, and legs tipped with embedded plastic guides. The seat construction is made with S-shaped springs that give the structure strength and flexibility. Using Maharam Kvadrat fabrics for special orders, the Eiffel Wire come in a wide variety of specialized and vibrant colors.
