Are you a minimalist when it comes to interior design?

Design Predictions for Furniture: Minimalism for 2011

The recession has diminished our need for non-essentials and that will be seen in the simple, geometric design of furniture. Flourishes will not be noticeable with the eyes, but with the comfort of a chair that looks austere in a geometric form, but is really quite comfortable. A soft faux fur also serves as a contrast and provides greater comfort.

Here, Neutra, designed by Belgian architect Vincent van Duysen for signature Tribù, represents what I interpret as representing the coming period.

  • Not quite that far, but I do hate having random junk and nick nacks scattered about. Sometimes less really is more.

  • We don't have much, partly because DS gets into everything so what's the point.

  • Not to that degree. However, my house is very clutter free.

  • Not that minimalist. We don't do themes, buy art, or get all matchy-matchy, but we have comfy furniture at least.

  • I do like a minimal look, not a fan of clutter and crap all over the walls at all, but my house isn't that bare.
