The holiday season may be over, but that does not mean winter is gone. When it’s still cold and snowy outside, all we want to do is stay inside where it’s cozy and warm. One of the best design styles to decorate a house in during this time of year is modern lodge. Think putting a clean, modern twist on a timeless yet distinctive style. When you think lodge do you picture dark tones, solid wood and cabin-inspired pieces? This season we’re lightening things up a bit while staying true to lodge style with light tones, distressed finishes, neutral accents and more contemporary lodge décor. No deer antlers mounted on the wall here! We’ll leave that to you.

Along with new furniture, we’re introducing you to a brand that is new to the Homemakers family: Global Home Group. You’ll see them mentioned often here as several of their collections perfectly fits the modern lodge design style.
Nothing says casual cool like a bar dining set. The Rockhampton collection includes a bar table and matching counter stools that easily accommodate a family of four. Gather around for a casual breakfast or use it as a workspace and let the kids spread out books and homework. The built-in cabinet and drawer storage makes it easy to stash dishes, flatware and anything else you might need. The contrasting materials and tones are what elevate this collection past classic lodge style. The bar table features a sturdy concrete top while the base is acacia with a natural rubbed finish. Light wood tones and rustic details keep this solidly in lodge territory while making it a more versatile option for your kitchen.
For those who still think warm wood tones characterize modern lodge- we got you! The Clifton collection is the way to go. The gorgeous side chairs are sure to catch your eye with elegant slat-backs and curved legs- reminiscent of Mission styling but with a farmhouse influence. This continues into the solid dining table which also has a rich tone that shows off the natural wood grain.
When it comes to the living room of a modern lodge, comfort is still key. Nothing says luxurious comfort to us more than a plush leather sofa, but it doesn’t have to be the casual leather sofa from your basement. Sleek lines, track arms, wide cushions- we love the mid-century modern shape of this sofa. Rich brown leather upholstery is a mainstay of lodge style that we just had to keep, but the modern form and design updates will quickly add a chic focal point to a casual lodge living room.
No living room is complete without a console to serve as entertainment storage. We have two consoles that still features the rich wood tones you expect from lodge style but with updated style details. The Clifton console is the synthesis of contemporary form and warm rustic influences. The polished metal bar hardware stands out against the multi-tone wood construction. Two cabinets, an open media compartment and drawer will accommodate your television, media equipment, books and everything else that makes your living room a gathering place for family.
If mid-century modern is more your style, the Berkeley console is essential for your lodge living room. The perfect blend of rustic and modern, the splayed legs and squared-off form are accentuated by the multi-tone wood and rich finish. Function follows form with an open compartment, shelf space, drawer and a roomy cabinet.
Accessories and accents are the best tools for adding contrasts and pops of unexpected style to a space. To bring your lodge living room into a modern place, light up the space with this glass table lamp. The simple but striking design is a study in contrasts with a shiny metal and light-toned wood base.
Have you seen the theme in our new pieces yet? Elevate rustic lodge style either with sleek contemporary form or by blending it with chic mid-century modern details. This stays true in our new bedroom furniture. The Clifton collection is crafted of gorgeous Tasmanian Blackwood, a bright wood species that stays true to your basic lodge style. The contemporary form however takes it to a fresh level: block feet, shiny metal bar hardware and a chic upholstered headboard on the queen storage bed.
The Berkeley collection stays true to mid-century modern form with splayed legs on the bed, dresser and nightstand. The queen bed also features a unique headboard that adds a simple but eye-catching pop of style. Modern lodge style is still apparent in the acacia wood and simple designs.
