Why the Mid-Century Modern Style Remains Popular
The mid-century modern design of furniture has been popular since its inception and continues to remain so year after year. When trends are released, this style is often on the list due to its simplicity in design and excellent ability to make a statement while blending with the rest of the pieces in your home. Here are some of the other reasons the mid-century modern furniture style continues to last.
Simple Lines and Forms
Interiors in the mid-century were primarily focused on easy living and organic styles. This reflected in the structure and design of the furniture, and this is what makes it iconic. The appearance and simplicity manage to remain eye-catching and interesting, yet not fussy or full of unnecessary additions.
Mid-century kitchens were styled to be a representation of the designs of the future. With shiny appliances, bright, fun colours, and unique surfaces, they were designed to look futuristic and streamlined. The kitchens were simplistic with slab cabinet doors, plain counter edges, and easy to obtain materials.
The mid-century modern design appeals to almost everyone. Individuals who were designing homes at the time hired top architects to build custom homes. Developers who were creating suburbs picked up on the style and incorporated it into their home designs, bringing it to the masses.
Neutral and Bright Colour Palette
Natural wood is a predominant feature in mid-century modern design. These warm and earthy tones are paired with deep, saturated colours to bring attention to each piece.
Chic Designs and Blends
Creating a mid-century design in your home is a great way to blend interesting shapes, patterns, and unique accents. Each piece is distinct in design and colour, yet the overall style keeps the design fresh and appealing no matter what era it is.
