Menswear Inspired Modern Contemporary SofaOne of the latest trends hitting the modern interior design scene is heavily influenced by menswear. Think industrial, leather upholstery, dark woods, and subtle textures. Another vital element to menswear-inspired furniture is the combination of classic neutral color palettes, texture, and subtle patterns. In our opinion, this style looks best in the bedroom and living room.

Natural Furniture Materials
