Mid Century Modern Design That Lasts a Lifetime
Mid Century Modern Design began in the early 1930’s, but really boomed in the 1950’s. Post-WWI architects influenced the transformation of home design, and furniture quickly followed! Sleek, clean roof lines with lots of glass, geometric shapes, and earth tones paved the way for unique furniture pieces with style that has spanned decades.
Identifying Mid Century Modern Furniture
Sleek, curvy, mod, clean, sophisticated, and functional. These terms all help describe Mid Century Style. Typically, there are two different color palettes that you will find in a midcentury design. The first color palette features deep earthy tones. Think olive green, natural wood, mustard yellow, or burnt umber. The other side of that palette invites vibrant pops of dramatic color like pink, gray, burgundy, and emerald green. Geometric frames, curved sculptural frames, and hairpin or flared furniture legs are the most common midcentury designs that are easier to pick out in a crowd. Keep your eyes open for these characteristics to guide you in the right direction!
How To Create a Mid-Century Modern Home
If you aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a fully midcentury home, start with some smaller furniture pieces that easily add that sleek, curved, classic style into your home. End Tables and coffee tables are simple changes that make a big impact in home design. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of bright, bold color in your living room! We suggest a colorful sofa or accent chair with sleek, curved edges paired with some fun patterned throw pillows.
