In the world of contemporary furniture, there are a lot of wannabees. The most common issue are those vendors that design something contemporary and think that gives them a right to charge through the roof. There are also a number of lower end brands that source their modern furniture from abroad and end up delivering quality that is shocking to the trained eye and built to make it through your front door and the first 6 months....just after the warranty ends.
There are however a few brands that offer modern cutting edge design at a price that will not leave you speechless. Keep in mind though that they are not cheap but they are not over-priced for what you get. They present exceptional value and are what I would consider as a great discovery. Jaymar Furniture is such a brand and is based in Canada and produces furniture that will last forever and never age from a style perspective.
Here is a picture of one of their pieces that is simple and elegant and can live in my media room any time it wants.
