A Look at Mid-Century Modern

When hearing the term Mid-Century Modern, what does it mean for you? Could it be grandma’s furniture or items from the 1950s or cool looking stuff that’s old, but looks new? Any of these could be the right answer. Who’s to say grandma didn’t have a keen sense of vintage style? According to Wikipedia, Mid-Century Modern is "An architectural, interior, product and graphic design that describes mid-20th century developments in modern design, architecture and urban development from roughly 1933 to 1965.” Although, those dates are not set in stone. It has also been argued that it was a shorter period of time from 1947 to 1957. No matter which years the style may be determined by, one thing is for sure. If you’re into clean-lined simplicity, adding some Mid-Century Modern flair to your décor could make a world of difference.
