When done right, the saying, less is always more, does hold true. Well, it is this saying that is at the heart of minimalism. Minimal designs never go out of style because they are basic, functional, and aesthetic, all at once. Needless to say, clean, calm, and clutter-free. In fact, minimalism is having a big moment not only in the design world but also in the way we lead our lives. 

Here is a curated list of 20 minimal furniture design ideas that we love that you can get inspired by and recreate at home. 

For big white spaces

One kind of furniture you can go for in big, clear, and white minimal spaces is something that blends in with the rest of the room. Think clean lines and frames, and neutral to white shades.

Minimal but contrasting

Clean and strong structures but a contrast from the rest of the space. This is another way you can design your minimal furtniture—something that stands out from the rest of the space.

Minimal and fun

Now, this combination of furniture that is minimal and fun at the same time is not something everyone can think of. Have a look at the simple frame of the central table with a wooden top. It's very minimal and the hint of yellow makes the entire space come alive.

Minimal but lush

Comfortable seating in big open spaces creates an atmosphere of lush minimalism. The low centre table provides a visual break to seating. Huge, glass windows allow natural light indoors and make the space shine.

Minimal built-in storage

The floor to ceiling storage with negative space and contrasting colours is a kind of minimal storage space goals. All your clutter can go inside leaving with only the essentials and what is pleasing to the eyes.

Minimal but cosy

A very doable room and furniture design to recreate. Simple, clean, and comfortable sofa in neutral colours. Look at the way the shelves, flooring, and legs of the sofas are have been coordinated as a happy contrast to the walls and ceiling. Efficient use of two colours to create more depth in minimal space.

Dining space goals

Metal legs and white, thin tabletop and chairs with a little character. Smart use of light accents and colours gives this dining space a little warm and cosy feel.

Minimal doesn't mean boring

You can design a minimal space with more than one colour and more than one style of furniture. Here is an example. Wooden table and chairs in natural textures along with light and fan fixtures in black give character to the room yet keeping the space clean and clutter-free.

Minimal and Warm

Who said minimal living spaces have to be monochromatic and boring? Light furniture, low table, and unconventional high stools have been used in this room. Colours have been added to give a warm and personal vibe to the space.

Bedroom minimalism

Looking for minimal design inspiration for your bedroom. Here is one. The simple yet traditional door partition and the basic chairs draw all the attention here.

Minimalist kitchen goals

We love everything about this kitchen and dining space. The kitchen furniture in white, all-glass doors, the table, and chair set are the heroes of this space.

Minimal seating inspiration

We love the minimal look of this corner with all the attention being grabbed by this metal-framed high chair with a basic but stylish seat. The white of the space adds to the character of the chair.

Whites and lights

This is what lush minimalism looks like, wouldn't you agree? Great use of light amidst all white furniture. LED lighting used here brings the space alive.

Minimal with your statement style

We love the centre table and the cushion covers that steal the show in this otherwise basic balcony room.

Clean lines

We love the symmetry of the clean lines of the room and the table, stool, and lamp—minimal, stylish, and calming.

Clutter free design

A clutter-free space has been created with a bold table and chairs and smart use of lighting.

Office cum dining

Furniture design that seamlessly connects a dining table to a work desk. The only two materials used are wood and metal.

Whites with a touch of green

A perfect example of minimal space with an interesting piece of sofa that lends an eclectic vibe to the space. The glass door further brings the green inside.

Elegant Minimalism

The centre table, seating, and wall decor are what elegant minimalism is all about.

Metal and wood

The combination of wood and metal can hardly ever go wrong in creating a piece of furniture that is minimal and classy.
