Sharp colors and patterns
Sharp and vivid colors, unusual patterns, and strong contrasts are the essential elements in Postmodern interior design. Contrasting shapes and colors naturally combine to create an original and welcoming atmosphere.
Postmodern interior colors include hues of avocado, orange, turquoise, and sometimes, shades of metal too.
Shapes and lines
Postmodern interior favors irregular and vague shapes over clean lines. That’s why this style boasts asymmetrical lines, unusual designs, lamps, furnishings, and decorative items.
Fabrics and materials
Postmodern style loves tight woven fabrics and wooden materials to bring warmth and character into space. Additionally, one can use glass, leather, plastic, and semi-precious materials such as fur and velvet to establish a Postmodern style.
Every detail in the interior can be adorned with postmodern colors, laminate, cardboard, and plastic to give the space a rich and unusual look.
