Modern luxe is having a moment that’s…momentous. Sleek and elegant yet very livable, this trend interprets color, shape and texture in fashion-forward ways that dispel the old-school notion that contemporary design is cold and impersonal. No wonder this is the look everyone is after. Here’s how you can luxe up your home with modern style.

1. Chic Color


With Premier Down seat and loose back seat cushions, the Aldana Sofa is luxuriously comfy from top to bottom. Photo: Bradington-Young.

Like the crisp white shirts style icon Audrey Hepburn wore, the supple leather Aldana Sofa lightens and brightens while providing contrast in a focused way.

The Pierce Sofa spins the color wheel with peacock pride and shows how a vibrant hue creates furniture wow when used the mindful restraint.

2. Metallic Sheen

3. Subtle Texture

Upholstered in a nubby silk-like menswear fabric, the Tobias Wing Chair is all about subtle texture than enhances and adds depth to furniture and interiors.

4. Runway Riffs

The Melange Genevieve Console looks like it’s wearing a chain-link belt. Outfitted in a rich gold-leafed base and chic leather top, this is a showy little number that’s runway-ready.

5. Arresting Shapes

Upholstered in a tone-on-tone, barely-there warm taupe print, the elegant Lark Chaise is more than swoon-worthy.

6. Geometric Touches


Cushion-cut, silver-leafed doors infuse the Alchemist bar cabinet by Cynthia Rowley for Hooker Furniture with geometric style and lots of sheen.

7. Classic Reinterpretations

Clean lines, a warm brown palette and a button-tufted cushioned headboard with modified wings give the modern Palisade Upholstered Shelter Bed an au courant feel that is a dream come true.

With designs like this, modern luxe is showing why its moment is indeed momentous and why this trend has staying power. If you’re ready to live the luxe life (and aren’t we all?), Hooker Furniture can help.
