What Modern Design Means Today

November 8th, 2012 | by The Update
5343 Livingston Avenue, Highland Park - a Briggs Freeman Sotheby's luxury home for sale, Update Dallas 2

The twenty first century is revealing a style shift in the American market. Consumers are living life at warp speed, and the result is a self-preserving movement toward simplicity. The word “modern” used to imply austere, impersonal and even cold. Today’s version, however, is more about a style that is composed, economical and functional.

The sleek yet welcoming home at 5343 Livingston Avenue was designed by Joshua Rice Design and is listed by Becky Frey.

Trends, with staying power, are clearly visible in the housing market. After all, a home is the largest investment most people make in their lifetime. And real estate insiders confirm a growing interest in the modernistic aesthetic. Even if a client generally likes a traditional façade or floor plan, they are now “seeking open spaces, and a setting that blurs the lines between indoors and out. These buyers appreciate the simplicity and clean lines that come with modern design and the versatility of a home that allows space to be used in many ways,” explains Robbie Briggs, CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. The public is clearly becoming more conscious of how a serene space can enhance their quality of life, and they are proactively seeking such refuge, regardless of the label.
