  3. Modern Fixtures and Finishes – While a modern design can really be communicated through the furniture stylings you choose, fixtures and finishes also have a vital role to play in achieving a contemporary log home. Metals and natural textiles are a stylish way to bring visual interest to a contemporary log home design.
