Mid-Century Modern Design Style

Mid-Century Modern design style has been surging in popularity for a few years now…and for good reason!  Interior designers, millennials, baby boomers all love this look. Because it’s a clean and modern style, with really great lines and a fond call out to our past.  It’s a style that feels current — but not trendy — because it’s based in the past.

Four ways to make your room fabulous with Mid-Century Modern style!

Teak Wood Furniture

One of the defining aspects of Mid-Century Modern design is teak wood accents.  From dining chairs to desks and tables, to console pieces…exposed teak wood in clean, simple lines without adornment is a great way to add this style to your home.

Dynamic Lighting

Great dynamic chandeliers are such a fun part of the Mid-Century movement.  Many times you’ll see the classic Sputnik chandelier in Mid-Century design, which reflects the 1960’s obsession with space. The latest evolution of the Sputnik chandelier has larger bulbs and more geometric lines.

Statement Chair

A unique statement chair is an integral part of a Mid-Century Modern room.  With teak wood arms or upholstered in a fun fabric, the chair should be a beautiful statement piece in your room.

Bar Cart

Cocktail hour was an important part of the culture in the 60’s – and so were their bar carts.  This is a great accent piece to add to your Mid-Century look and a great tradition to add to your nightly routine!
