Mid-Century Modern Dream

Ten Mid-Century Furniture Favorites

Mid-Century Modern, a revolutionary movement that began in the late 1930s that has never left our homes or our hearts. Reflecting the international and business movements with global influences from the likes of Scandinavian and Brazilian architects, with a style characterized by clean simplicity and integration with nature.

With advancements in technology and resources, and a global shift in philosophy, our idea of furnitures functionality being mostly ornamental has declined. We have been emerging with modern ideals of sustainability, accessibility, and practicality, and straying farther from a strictly decorative intention. Though Mid-Century designs are sleek and functional, there has been no lack of sophistication and beauty in the aesthetic.

Here are some of our top picks for Mid-Century Modern pieces for your modern home!
