I blame it on Mad Men for the huge explosion of love for Mid Century Modern decor and furniture. The sleek and clean lines with a tinge of cool, retro accents make this style a really sought for look. I myself love certain aspects of it and I can understand the fad. I really have no idea how to define ‘Mid Century Modern’ but when searching for the definition, this was what I was able to find:
It broadly describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century(roughly 1933 to 1965, though some would argue the period is specifically limited to 1947 to 1957). The timeframe is a modifier for the larger modernist movement, which has roots in the Industrial Revolution at the end of the 19th century and also in the post-World War I period.
Either way, here are a few inspirational pictures below and some of my picks for pieces to add this style to your home!
