If you love to browse the vintage shops and thrift stores and are inspired by the retro looks from 50 to 60 years ago, then the Mid-Century Modern style may be perfect for you!
Inspired by 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s pop culture, retro-modern style offers sophisticated designs with a playful side. We’re not talking about shag carpeting or bell-bottom jeans, it’s a style that’s more “Mad Men” than your grandmother’s sofa. Look for pieces with splayed legs, metal or chrome detailing, and whimsical prints or pops of color to capture this throwback style.
Mid-Century Modern combines geometric shapes, clean lines, vivid colors and excellent craftsmanship. It keeps a simple approach in its design, referencing the chic styles of the 1960s and ’70s to create a sophisticated retro look for the modern age. Vibrant colors are used to complement these basic designs, and the use of geometric shapes and splayed legs add intriguing details to this throwback style.
Mid-Century Modern’s uncomplicated, fresh aesthetic arose from a desire to propel postwar America into the modern era and recast design through a bold new lens. It’s emphasis on pared-down forms, contemporary patterns, natural materials and a seamless flow between indoors and out creating a medley of functional comfort and chic style.
