Question : What do “The Jetsons”, “2001 Space Odyssey”, “Blade Runner” and “Tron Legacy” all have in common?


Answer :  They are all examples set in a time featuring unique interiors with sleek textiles, colorful plastics, molded plywood, and gleaming metals.


Like the Jetsons’ Skypad apartment, a 21st century home reflects artfully placed furniture and accessories with a new simplistic twist. The look is more architectural and the pieces are often strong and purposeful with high functional appeal. Large stainless steel appliances, sleek flat-screen TVs, and chunky nickel lighting fixtures are the perfect compliments to today’s modern kitchen.


Incorporating metals with unique shapes and finishes can accomplish a current look in your home. Using unexpected and fresh colors through accessories is always successful in a modern design.


The word modern comes from the Latin word modernus or mod, meaning just now. It reflects the look of “less is more”.

If you’re ready for a change, bring on your modern metals and get, as George Jetson would say, a “hooba-dooba-dooba” look!
