Although there’s something so beautifully timeless about a traditional aesthetic, there’s no rulebook when it comes to modern interior design and that’s what makes it so inspiring. A modern interior design approach creates the optimum conditions for artistic licence and self-expression, providing room for experimentation and a canvas for playing with white space, sleek materials and clean lines. Swoon over CovetED’s list of modern interior and stylish houses you definitely need to know!
In a Beverly Hills house devised by architecture firm Marmol Radziner with interior design by Boehm Design Assoc., the great room is furnished with midcentury-modern staples like Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona chairs and ottoman by Knoll.
The living room in a glass-walled penthouse of a New York City duplex renovated by Steven Harris Architects and decorated by Rees Roberts + Partners features a vintage Milo Baughman chair in the foreground.

Another must-mention for our round-up of modern interior designers is 1508 London. Designers at the UK-based firm are unbounded by design dogma and view each project as unique, looking to develop a story using the history and geography of spaces for inspiration. Locations the firm has worked its modern interior design magic on including luxurious residences in London, a five-star hotel in Venice and penthouse in Istanbul. This image from Project Elizabeth – a Victorian postal office converted into a high-impact apartment-cum-gallery – demonstrates the firm’s powerful expertise with materials. Pre-cast concrete doors on its first-floor mezzanine are cleverly crafted with timber inside to make them lighter and perforated with bespoke acrylic lenses to amplify light throughout the space. Unsurprisingly, the firm won the Best London Interior Award for this project at the prestigious UK Property Awards last year and we’re certain it won’t be the last.
An Aspen, Colorado, home designed by Shelton, Mindel & Assoc. features midcentury furniture including the Joseph Paul D’Urso chairs by Knoll.
Beautiful neutral design in all Caffe Latte Modern Design products. A modernist aesthetic is not limited to a specific style since mid-century modern furniture is coveted in many homes with different style narratives.
A vintage dining table and chairs by Hans J. Wegner and a circa-1963 Arteluce pendant light furnish the dining room of a Bridgehampton, New York, house devised by the architecture firm Deborah Berke Partners, with interior designer Thomas O’Brien of Aero Studios.
At an Aspen home by designer Shawn Henderson and architect Scott Lindenau, the living room’s club chairs, Jean Royère-inspired sofa, cocktail table, and carpet were all custom designed by Shawn Henderson. The vintage Hans Wegner spindle-back chair is from Wyeth.
Neutrals are so not boring! Think of it as a blank canvas, where you can play with patterns, textures, and different colour hues. Plus, just add a pop of colour with greenery, and your design is good to go!
