The first pieces of modern event furniture are designed and manufactured in the ages 19 and 20. While most audacious classic furniture outlets appeared before the mid 20 th century, furniture continues to evolve today. Modern furniture features a functional design with clean, simple lines, a sharp contrast to the highly ornate furniture decoration that was popular for centuries. European designers introduced the unique style, but interest in modern furniture quickly spread to Los Angeles, New York and other U.S. cities.

Through the use of new methods and materials, furniture design combines art with technology. Designers use innovative materials such as plastics, molded plywood and steel, all suitable for mass production. By reducing costs and increasing the availability of parts, mass production brought modern design accessible to ordinary people. Fine furniture was no longer a luxury only for the rich, instead of symbolizing the richness of age, power and furniture is contemporary and populist past and present oriented.

Modern furniture designers around the globe. The famous chair designs of the German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe were considered functional art when they came to the design scene in the 1920's. Isamu Noguchi, American and Japanese descent, he used his talent in landscape design and sculpture to create furniture with organic lines and natural. Irish-born Eileen Gray combined steel and glass tube in an adjustable table surprisingly simple. The Hungarian modernist Marcel Breuer used industrial production principles to create simple modular forms. Millwright poet Herman Miller was one of the first design office furniture comfortable and functional, the company he founded now operates in over 40 countries around the world.

Good Luck
