Mid-Century Modern Design

Mid-century modern design focuses on layout, location, and function. It focuses heavily on the trends of the 1920s through the 1950s. Clean lines in architecture, stark white interior walls, and open floor plans are all common in modern design. A well-planned modern layout can promote calmness and simplicity within a home.

  • Fabric. Elements of nature, including stone, wood, leather, and linen are utilized to give modern spaces texture without being overbearing.
  • Shape. The geometry that polished metals create are common in modern furniture and accessories. Popular choices include molded plastic chairs with polished furniture legs and wood-stained credenzas.
  • Furniture. Clean, straight lines are prevalent in modern decor. Whether it’s the furniture or the shape of the room, form and function are completely balanced  to create a simple space.
  • Color. Pure colors like black, white, and beige are used throughout modern design. Bold colors come through in accent walls or furniture pieces, but are used sparingly to take avoid ruining the balance.
