Modern is a broad design term that typically refers to a home with clean, crisp lines, a simple color palette, and the use of materials that can include metal, glass, and steel.
Modern design employs a sense of simplicity in every element, including furniture. A word regularly used to describe modern style is sleek, and there is not a lot of clutter or accessories involved with a modern style.
Modern and contemporary are two styles frequently used interchangeably. Contemporary is different from modern design because it describes based on the here and now.
The primary difference separating modern and contemporary design styles is that; Modern design is a strict interpretation of design that started in the 20th century. Contemporary on the other hand is more fluid and can represent a sense of currency with less adherence to one particular style. For example, contemporary style may include curving lines, whereas modern design does not.
The minimalist concept is popular here in Ethiopia. It takes notions of modern design and simplifies them further.
Color palettes are neutral and airy; furnishings are simple and streamlined, and nothing is excessive or flamboyant in accessories or décor.
Minimalism is ultimately defined by a sense of functionality and ultra-clean lines.
Mid-century modern is a throwback to the design style of the mid-1900s primarily, the 1950s and 60s. There is a retro nostalgia present in Mid-Century Modern Design and also some elements of minimalism.

It emphasizes pared-down forms as natural or organic shapes such as “egg-shaped” chairs, easy-to-use contemporary designs, and simple fabrications. It easily complements any interior and also helps with seamless transition from interior to exterior.
