The Definition of Organic Modern Style

Organic Modern style starts with a canvas of modern architecture and layers on natural and organic materials to create a comfortable, effortless feel. In Organic Modern homes, sleek lines are punctuated with reclaimed or rustic materials and natural textures and accessories

History & Inspiration

Where to Shop This Look

The staple mass market stores for shopping Organic Modern are Restoration Hardware, West Elm, Design Within Reach, Crate and Barrel, World Market and Anthropologie. While these stores are easily accessible, the heart of your Organic Modern furnishings are best sourced locally from vintage stores and local artisans, designers, and makers using natural and reclaimed materials.

Stephanie suggests the following steps to create a Organic Modern living room.

  1. Donate the traditional camelback or tufted leather sofa to the local thrift store and replace it with a low profile, sleek, white linen sofa.
  2. Pair this with live edge wood tables and a jute woven rug or hand woven wool area rug.
  3. Select your favorite Eames chair as a homage to the founding fathers.
  4. Add a Danish teak or natural hide slingback chair with geometric woven throw from the local vintage shop.
  5. Add a collection of baskets, antique antlers, and succulents housed in recycled glass.
  6. Top it all off with a collection of textural woven natural pillows and loosely placed throws in neutral colors.
  7. Hit up Etsy and order a hand-made bohemian macrame.
  8. Finally, light up your room with a large bamboo pendant.
