Modsy Style Glossary – What Your Modsy Style Says About You

Modsy Style Mod Collector

When it comes to designing your home, there are so many factors to think about. There’s your budget, layout, and functional needs for the space to consider, as well as the overall style you want to bring to life in your home.

But it isn’t always easy putting pencil to paper and articulate your style. Do you like modern or contemporary? Mid-century or industrial? It’s easy to collect a Pinterest board of interiors you love, but it’s another task entirely to describe exactly what you like about them.

To help take some of the work out of designing your home, our Modsy Style Quiz helps you hone in on a specific look that works for you and your space. From Mod Collector to Rustic Warmth, each Modsy Style is comprised of a curated mix of furniture and accents that is unique to the look – and designed to give your home a look and feel you’ll love.

Strong lines, raw and unfinished materials, and streamlined designs, all underscore the Atomic Industrial look. Inside these rooms you’ll find modern, edgy pieces combined with a moody palette. All in all, it’s a style with some serious urban appeal.

The Key Elements

Sturdy foundational pieces (neutral-hued sofa, iron open bookcases, hefty cement table), industrial materials (unfinished woods, exposed metal, leather with a rich patina), and a high contrasty color palette (charcoal upholstery and pillows, black-and-white rug).

It’s Perfect If You…

Respond to spaces that convey a sense of gravitas and feel most at home amid moody shades and raw materials. If you like minimalist or loft-like spaces that are furnished with just a few substantial (and functional) pieces, the Atomic Industrial look is right up your alley.

And just because this style tends toward the sleek and serious, doesn’t mean the furniture lacks in comfort. In fact, if you’re all about tried-and-true pieces that are cozy and easy to mix and match together, you’ll want to experiment with this style.
