Why Choose a Contemporary Wall Clock?

Mar 18, 2008
For hundreds of years man has been trying to tell the perfect time. Today we have all sorts of ways of telling the time and hundreds of different styles of time keeping pieces.

From the very early ages man has pondered how to master the telling of perfect time. Early the sun was used as a time piece, then sand and candles were used to tell time. Now we have atomic clocks. How times have changed. But what should we expect or desire from our household clocks? Funky as fashionable clocks are all the rage at the moment but you have to have a certain house style to be able to carry off displaying a piece of modern art on your walls.

If you want to be bold and make a statement but be a little under stated then a contemporary clock could be the design for you. The contemporary design wall clocks are, in many cases, masterpieces of time keeping, incorporating start designs and clean cut features such as a crisp white dial with black bar hour markers and black hour and narrow hands. These designs have stood the test of time and are still admired for the contemporary classics that they are.

On contemporary clocks the design features are bold yet subtle, unlike modern funky clocks which jump off the wall at you. Features on the contemporary metal wall art is the use of added depth and dimension often resulting in a metal wall sculpture instead of a flat one dimensional piece, with the added feature of an open dial, highlighted by a raised nickel bezel these contemporary clocks will continue to stand the test of time.

A bold funky clock will shout at you as you enter the room, which if that is what you are trying to achieve then perfect, however, you can opt for a conventional style to lend a sense of stylishness and elegance to your family unit room or billet by placing a contemporary wall clock in a position of prominence in a room and still achieve the same wow factor but without all of the fuss and brashness.

A contemporary design wall clock that continues to be as popular today as ever before features a dark wooden case of mahogany or ebony housing a white dial with embossed markers and straight hands, all with a brushed nickel fetch up. This beautiful piece would proudly stand on any wall in many of the houses across the land.

The use of nickel in contemporary wall clocks is very popular, along with a contemporary rectangular wooden case these sometimes feature a curving front with recessed napped nickel bands, with complementing napped nickel finished hands. Just a perfectly beautiful piece of contemporary design that will adorn a wall for year after year and still gain the same respect as the day it was first placed there.

So if you are looking to add that touch of style and finesse to your home and don't want to go down the route of the modernist design that seems so very popular at present why not look at adding a contemporary wall clock to your house. It will add that special touch to any room.
