Mid-Century Modern Style

Anna Lewis Wednesday, August, 27 2014

This month we are feeling inspired and perhaps even more in love (if that’s possible) with Midcentury Modern style and it’s versatility and ability to  blend with other looks. We love the thinking behind Midcentury Modern designs, particularly architecture with the emphasis on integrating clean simple lines with nature, creating spaces with ample windows and open floor plans, bringing the outdoors in.

Mid-Century modern is an architectural, interior, product and graphic design, generally describing mid-20th century developments in modern design, architecture and urban development from roughly 1933 to 1965.

It’s emphasis on clean organic lines , bold splashes of colour and integration with nature have lead to stylish, inspiring pieces of




and interiors…. 

Many Mid-century houses utilized then-groundbreaking post and beam architectural design that eliminated bulky support walls in favor of walls seemingly made of glass. Emphasising the importance of a close relationship  between the indoors and outdoors.

Function was as important as form in Mid-Century designs, apparent in these shelving and storage units that have become symbolic of this retro look..

As I mentioned earlier I love this looks’ ability to seamlessly integrate with contrasting styles. 

Two of our new locations successfully demonstrate this...

Location 3599 has the Mid-Century trademark open plan living with glass walls and floor to ceiling windows bringing the outside in. They successfully blend together a mix of Mid-Century classics with contemporary twists. It is a treasure trove of retro textiles, ceramics and stylish pieces of Mid-Century furniture. We love this new location 3599...

Location 3711 have managed to carefully blend together some Mid-Century pieces with more traditional twists, in a stylish open plan living space...

We love this look!
