Key features of Mid-Century Modern

Solid wood in warm tones

The rich tones of walnut, oak, or mahogany are a cornerstone of this elegant design choice and will make any room in your house warm and inviting.

Clean lines

The clean lines of Mid-Century Modern furniture include tapered legs, geometric forms, and uncluttered surfaces with minimal decorations or trinkets.

Geometric designs

The abstract, asymmetrical, or geometrical shapes found in this type of decor provide a dramatic contrast to the neutral look of the furniture. Choosing pieces like a rug or painting is where you can really have some fun with colour and shape.

Large windows and glass walls

Experience the outdoors while you are inside with large windows and glass walls that bring nature into your home while entertaining guests or relaxing with the family.

Top-notch dining table

Every Mid-Century Modern home has a few key pieces of furniture that stand out in every room. If you entertain often and spend a significant amount of time in the dining room with guests, then you need to have a high-quality dining table to serve food and drinks.

A Mid-Century Modern dining room consists of large windows, glass walls, and an elegant and inviting atmosphere to welcome guests. The showcase of this room should be the dining table in warm wood tones with tapered legs in true design style. When the table is not being set for a meal, then the surface should remain uncluttered except for one or two accent pieces of asymmetrical design that match any other decorations like a painting or vase. Mahogany is a very popular wood for dining room tables with its rich, luxurious dark tones and shiny surface and because it is solid wood, it will last for years to come.

A truly unique living room

The living room in any home should be a place where you can kick off your shoes and enjoy the latest episode of your favourite podcast or a good book on Kindle. The room should feel cosy and warm, especially when you use solid wood furniture with organic curves and clean lines. A living room should speak to your personality and style with accents to the simple furniture like colourful throw pillows and sumptuous rugs with deep reds, bright yellows and eye-catching orange.

Masterpiece coffee table

An important piece of furniture in any living room is the coffee table. A Mid-Century Modern coffee table should be a work of art as well as a surface for magazines and coffee cups. The wood grain should match the rest of the furniture in the room, while adding an interesting shape to the base of the table can make this piece stand out. Surfaces like glass or wood should be clear with the exception of an artfully placed accessory.

Personal boutique hotel bedroom

You’ll no longer need to close the door to the bedroom when guests come over as you’ll be dying to show off your beautiful Mid-Century Modern bedroom suite. The bedroom should have large windows that bring natural light and foliage into the room with functional sliding glass doors for easy access to the outdoors.

A Mid-Century Modern bedroom should be comfortable and inviting, an oasis to rest your weary head at the end of the day or settle in for an afternoon nap. With luxurious wood tones in the bed frame, the blankets and pillows can provide a flash of colour with geometric shapes that match artwork, accessories and a sumptuous rug.

Final thoughts

Designing your home in the Mid-Century Modern style ensures you will have a rich, inviting space to welcome your guests with high-quality beautiful furniture that will last for years to come. With clean lines, interesting shapes and splashes of colour, you will have created not just a home, but an interior design masterpiece.
