Synopsis: Matching furniture to your home decor can be a tall order. Classic furniture styles with intricate details can overpower a room or clash with other styles in the typical home. That's one of the reasons why contemporary furniture is so popular â€" and why woodworkers love to build it.

Contemporary furniture has an understated elegance that is suited to just about any room, regardless of decorating style. This book presents 17 contemporary furniture projects hand-picked from the pages of Popular Woodworking Magazine and American Woodworker magazine. Each one comes with step-by-step instructions, high-quality diagrams, cutting lists, color photos and detailed, easy-to-follow assembly techniques. Inside you'll find:

   • Elegant side tables
   • An open-construction bookcase
   • Sleek modern cabinets
   • A mid-century inspired coffee table
   • A city sideboard
   • And other stylish projects
From simple drawer pulls to gracefully beveled edges, contemporary furniture offers a subtle elegance that can really bring the room together. Let this book be your guide, and create your own contemporary pieces today.
