Avant-garde, a classic design style

Throughout the last decade, the avant-garde style has become one of the most popular to design and decorate a house.

This trend, which has been gaining followers in recent years, breaks with tradition and bets on modern and current lines, according to the new lifestyles of society. The families change of habits, as well as the digital transformation are only some of the causes of the rupture with the previous styles.


Avant-garde icons

Since the 20´s the avant-garde architecture has taken center stage and, with the pass of time, has been consolidated by iconic figures such as Le Corbusier, who transformed his house in Poissy - known as Villa Savoye - into one of the most representative icons of the movement in France.

All the houses after that one followed the same style: simple and geometric shapes in large and bright spaces with the goal of creating comfortable and organized areas.


Materials and colors

Although the design world undergoes changes and innovations periodically, steel, aluminum, PVC and wood prevail over any other material.

In this way we have always wanted to promote a modern style and even, in some cases, futuristic.

These materials are combined with neutral colors, focusing on white walls that bring light to the space and enhance the sense of spaciousness.

In this context, the Schröder house, built in 1924 in Utrecht (Holland) is considered one of the most important architectural works of Gerrit Rietveld, who at the beginning of the 1920s, already showed some of the more symbolic features of the Vanguard movement.


Inspiring movement

Sticking to the premise "less is more" the avant-garde style has been gaining ground in the field of architecture and design, becoming a purely inspirational movement that goes beyond the functional and aesthetic.
