Fashion is changing, and with it the preferences of people in architecture and design are changing. Contemporary is one of the most popular styles. It is a striking symbiosis of beloved elegant classics and restrained minimalism. The images are a prime example. On one of them we see an elegant spiral staircase, made in the classical style, and on the other - modern furniture and decorative lamps framed by classic wall panels. It is amazing how competently modern fashion manages to combine, seemingly, such diﬀerent concepts.
