From its clean lines to its bright colors and cheeky charm, we never tire of the mid-century modern aesthetic. See a quick breakdown of our signature style and learn easy ways to work the look yourself!
We recently created a living space designed to the detail in classic mid-century modern style. Known for our mid-century designs, our furniture makes it easy to bring some of the most innovative interior designs from the space-age into current, modern homes. For this look, we stuck to tradition and assembled a truly timeless mid-century living room with the perfect balance of interesting shapes, colors, and accessories.
The Hughes Sofa, in our cool Impact Mist fabric, is the ideal focal point for this space. With its single-tufted back and beautifully flared legs, the Hughes Sofa is the epitome of mid-century sophistication. This retro-chic piece is perfectly complemented by our Cullen Coffee Table, true to the time period with its slatted base, sharp lines, and flared shape.
No mid-century living space is worth its salt without a decent console to stash LPs, DVDs and the like. Our Simic Media Console does just the trick – providing a safe place for storing all electronic and media needs while concealing eyesores like cords.
Seating arrangements wouldn’t be complete without a plush arm chair to balance out the sofa. For this space, we opted for the Winslow Chair in a savory lemon yellow that matches the opposite wall. Using bright colors on walls and furniture is a staple of the mid-century look, so don’t be afraid to use contrasting tones in playful ways.
The polka-dot patterned wallpaper set behind the sofa adds a kind of Roy Lichtenstein dimension to the room. Its stunning geometry also subtly mimics the atomic designs popular during this period. This Tempaper Wallpaper may add some retro panache, but unlike wallpapers of old, Tempaper designs are self-adhesive AND removable, making it extra easy to install and changeup as much as you like!
We balanced out the “busy-ness” of the wallpaper design by opting for a plain white shag rug, grounding the bright and colorful room in a neutral, but textural classic. The final finishing touches include our atomically-chic Tolson End Table, vintage-esque Bryce Table Lamp, and an iconic starburst clock.
