We're always keeping our eye out for what's new, fresh, and popular in the world of design so we can bring the styles right to you. Lately, we're seeing a re-surgence of mid-century modern inspired designs.
Mid-Century Modern designs were a reaction to the more traditional, overdone period furniture that was popular in the early 1900's in the U.S. Post WWII, people wanted to start entertaining more and the open floor plans in the living areas with separate bedroom wings made this possible. Since the homes tended to be more sleek and unadorned, the furniture needed to follow the same trend.
What features distinguish Mid-Century Modern design apart from the rest?
- Classic, understated looks with clean lines and minimal adornment
- Functionality over fussiness
- Sleek lines in both organic and geometric forms
- Juxtaposition of different materials
- Liberal use of wood, plastic, glass, metal, Lucite
- Nubby, textural fabrics
