The latest trend is not always the most popular or more attractive one. Sometimes nostalgic designs are more dramatic, more attractive and more interesting and that can be for several different reasons. One of them is the fact mid-century modern designs break the monotony of mass-produced items and offer something different, something custom that allows us to stand out and with which we can identify.
One way of introducing this style into a space is through furniture. Try to find unique pieces or furniture that stands out in some way. The whole point is to be different so forget about the usual furniture stores and start visiting antique shops and flea markets.
The little details are often the ones that have the biggest impact on a décor. So pay special attention to your artwork, lighting, accessories and other similar things. A large graphic painting can make a bold statement.
Use pendant lights instead of other more minimalist options. They have a double role in mid-century modern interiors. In addition to being functional, the pendants also serve as delicate sculptures and decorations so look for custom designs that can help you achieve such a look.
White paint is your best option. Most mid-century homes have white walls and there’s a very good reason for that. The white walls allow the high-quality and good-looking furnishings to stand out and to become focal points.
Modern furniture is almost always made of engineered pressed wood and that wasn’t the case when all the beautiful antiques were made. So if you want to add mid-century flair to your home one of the best ways to do it is with furniture made of real wood.
