Mid-Century Modern

Design

Mid-century modern is a classic and has really made a comeback in the last few years. It has seemed to stay relevant no matter the decade. Mid-century interiors originated in the '50s and ’60s in post-war America. During this time, the design industry was trying to break out of its traditional barriers and dive into a new, modern era. There are so many popular mid-century modern furniture pieces that are still used in our homes today. It has even influenced other design styles. Keep an eye out for versions of iconic furniture such as the Eames lounger, the egg chair, or the wishbone chair. Think of the way that bohemian and mediterranean decor have integrated woven hanging egg chairs into their design styles too. Mid-century modern homes have a breezy and seamless flow. They’ve always encouraged indoor to outdoor living. For this reason, sliding doors and picture windows are left bare to emphasize that connection to nature. There is a lot of curves and rounded edges to keep that natural style flowing. Rich and luxurious woods such as teak, rosewood, and walnut are regularly used. In addition, accents of mustard yellow, chartreuse, or avocado are used for a pop of color.
