BUILD shares their 20 picks for residential furnishings.

With the bulk of BUILD’s projects in the residential camp, we’ve gathered a healthy list of furniture over the years. Some are classic favorites, some were brought to the table by design savvy clients, others were the product of thorough research, and every now and again we stumble upon something exceptional unintentionally. Whatever the case, in the sea of furniture out there, these pieces work well with the design-forward mindset and do an exceptional job of complementing our brand of modern architecture. While our list is neither comprehensive nor complete, today’s post covers 20 pieces of well-appointed furniture for the contemporary home. Enjoy and add your favorites in the comments section.
