Mid-Century Modern Furniture

What is mid-century modern furniture?

Mid-century modern refers to a particular style of architecture and furniture design that appeared in the middle of the 20th century. The movement is generally considered to have started after the Second World War, though some designers were already experimenting with modernist contours in the 1930s.

Characterised by clean lines and simple, elegant shapes, mid-century modern furnishings often mix wood and upholstery and are designed to be comfortable and attractive as well as practical. Intended to be mass-produced, they were designed to make high quality, stylish furniture available to everyone.

Although mid-century modern dining tables, sofas, coffee tables and chairs were intended to be manufactured on a large scale, they still retain excellent attention to detail. Mid-century modern pieces are generally made using high quality materials and are designed to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life.

What defines mid-century modern furniture?

Mid-century modern furniture is generally more elegant and more refined than other design styles. If you look at mid-century modern sectional sofas for example, or a mid-century couch, you’ll probably see slimline, wooden feet and plump but well-defined cushions.

A lot of mid-century modern furniture has curved elements, so you’re unlikely to see any sharp corners or harsh right angles. Instead, mid-century modern living room, dining room and bedroom furnishings have rounded corners, acute or obtuse angles and interesting outlines.
