CONTEMPORARY HOME DECOR
Add finishing touches to every room with contemporary home decor. Decorative objects complete a space and can also visually express your design preferences and unique sense of style. At Danish design store HAY, choose from many different types of home accents and decorative objects to fill your space with beauty and function.
Many home decor accents – such as mirrors, tabletop trays, and candles – are at once visually pleasing and functional, making them useful additions to different spaces throughout your home. Artful home decor even encompasses organizational accessories and storage solutions. For example, elevate your living room, bedroom, or entryway with handmade felted wool baskets that offer stylish practicality. Spruce up an empty corner with a hanging planter or bring order to your desktop with an elegant steel tray. At HAY, shop contemporary home decor and accessories that can help you curate a unique sense of character throughout your home.
TYPES OF CONTEMPORARY HOME DECOR
Crates, Baskets & Trays: Organizational home decor accessories include baskets and trays. Decorative baskets are exceptionally versatile and can be used throughout the home. Place one in your living room or bedroom to store extra blankets and throws, or use one in a children's playroom as a catchall for toys. Similarly, trays are available in a variety of sizes and can be used across a wide range of contexts. Use a large tray to serve beverages to dinner guests or arrange a tray set on your desktop or bathroom counter to corral daily essentials.
Vases: To instantly breathe life into a space, explore decorative vases that showcase unique textures, shapes, and colors. At HAY, shop glass vases, metal vases, and 3D-printed ceramic vases that display flowers beautifully or stand alone as contemporary pieces of decor.
Candles & Candleholders: Create an inviting atmosphere in any room with candles and candleholders. HAY’s wide candle assortment – including sleek geometric pillar candles, colorful striped pillar candles, solid taper candles, and playful designs like HAY’s twisted spiral candles – make excellent finishing touches to a mantle or serve as centerpieces on coffee tables and dining tables. Pair them with candleholders in a variety of styles, from geometric to sculptural.
Pillows & Throws: The perfect accessories to any sofa or sectional, decorative throw pillows and throw blankets add color, texture, and pattern to your favorite lounge seating. Transform living room seating or bedrooms with colorful throw pillows or throw blankets, which can be easily swapped when seasons or styles change.
Decorative Objects: Bring your personal style to any room with decorative objects like an hourglass or small abstract sculpture. Here are a few of the best places to arrange small decorative items: a living room coffee table, a dining room credenza, or an office bookcase.
Mirrors: An essential in entryways, bedrooms, and walk-in closets, mirrors reflect light and can make a room feel bigger and brighter. Hang wall mirrors near windows in your living space or in an entryway for touch-ups on your way out the door.
Wall Art: Framed wall art and posters add visual energy to any room. Paired with framed family photos, wall clocks, and other pieces of wall decor, contemporary wall art can complete a gallery wall. In a contemporary space, geometric and abstract wall art can add vibrant color and pattern to unify your space. At HAY, shop contemporary wall art by designers Nathalie du Pasquier and Ronan Bouroullec.

With the changing of the seasons comes a chance to infuse your space with new character. Plus, if you plan on hosting guests this holiday season, new decor can be just what you need to keep your home looking fresh and ready to entertain. Though traditional fall decor and holiday decor may lean heavily into seasonal motifs, contemporary fall home decor can take many forms. Contemporary fall decor may not feature seasonal motifs at all, instead favoring bold seasonal color palettes and cozy materials. Similarly, contemporary winter home decor doesn’t have to stick to snowflakes. Icy blue candlesticks in glass candleholders, chunky-knit wool blankets, and thick, textured throw pillows can make just as big of an impact in a winter-ready space. This season, shop your holiday decorating ideas from HAY. Explore a vast assortment of bold yet playful contemporary home decor perfect for your seasonal refresh, including candles and candlesticks, decorative cases, throw pillows, planters, wall art, and more.
