What is Mid-Century Modern Style?
Mid-century modern is a term that describes the aesthetic of design from the mid-1940s to the mid-1960s. This period was characterized by a departure from traditional design and new creative approaches to architecture, furniture, and other decorative arts. It is known for its clean lines, organic curves, and timeless quality that blends easily with many different styles. Its emphasis on the natural wood grain reminds us of nature — which is never out of style. Moreover, it appreciates unconventional materials such as plastic, glass, plywood, aluminum, fiberglass, and lucite.
This design borrows elements from several styles, including Art Deco, Minimalism, Scandinavian Modern, and Bauhaus. The result is a sleek, streamlined look that’s functional and comfortable. Nowadays, the mid-century trend is making waves among decorators. The look is not only functional but also visually pleasing–the perfect combination for any home!
The Best Way to Decorate Your Home in Mid-Century Modern Style
Before decorating your home in mid-century modern furniture, the first thing you need to do is clear away the clutter. This style works best when there are fewer objects in each room. Instead of trying to fill up your space by adding more things, work on keeping what’s there streamlined and simple. That means putting away as much as possible, so you have plenty of open space.
After you’ve cleared away the clutter and freed up some space, it’s time to add some furniture pieces. This is where mid-century modern shines because it focuses on simple shapes and comfortable elements that are the room’s focal points.
Once you have your main furniture pieces selected (you’ll need a sofa or sectional, a coffee table or ottoman, a side table or two), you can add in some decorative pieces to give your room personality. To help you decorate your space, we’ve rounded up seven must-have items with mid-century modern details that will instantly bring this timeless yet trendy style into your home.
