With its clean lines and eminently cool vibe, the mid-century modern decor has been popular for about the last decade. The comfortable and stylish designs fit with today’s more casual lifestyle and open floor plans. In fact, mid-century modern pieces have made their way into the offerings of many mass-market furniture retailers.
This means it is easier than ever to find items for your own home. But, what mid-century modern mean when we talk about this type of décor?
Mid-century modern is an overused buzzword that has come to mean a lot of different things, and not all of them accurate. It’s really a reference to developments from the middle of the 20th century – mainly after World War II – in architecture, furniture, materials and technologies that become popular after the end of the war. Currently, it is mostly used in reference to furnishings and décor.
