The terms modern and contemporary when used to describe furniture is often interchangeable so much so that the common man gets confused when people refer to one or the other. While modern could refer to a school of design contemporary could refer to a time period - e.g. furniture pieces from the 1980s could be referred to as "contemporary" 1980s furniture. However for practical purposes a modern frame of bed and contemporary bed-frame could both have the similar clean simple style and uncluttered design.
Modern frame of beds have a classical design that is comfortable to sleep in also. Modern platform frame of beds are designed such that they offer ample space under the bed for storage space.
