Mid-Century Modern: A Vision of the Future
 

No other interior style has stood the test of time as mid-century modern has. It’s an evergreen style that’s beloved by all and frequently talked about, but why? Take a dive into what mid-century modern is and how the look is achieved.

 

With its roots in the USA and Europe, designs in this style were born in the 1940s and 50s. Inspired by the forward-thinking nature of the greatest generation, the look embodied an optimistic look to the future. 

 

As such, practicality and durability reigned supreme. With these key values, the furniture remained in homes for decades to come, making the look common and relatable to all. 

 

Intended for mass production, this furniture is minimalist in nature, with clean lines and purposeful details. Designs tend to feature flowing curves, rounded corners, and tapered legs, sometimes with brass caps. 

 

The most commonly used mid-century material is wood, usually in warm tones such as teal and walnut. Mid-century chairs and sofas are often upholstered in woven fabrics or leathers ranging from neutral tones to bold and bright colours. Accessory pieces such as cushions and wall art tend to feature bold graphic patterns, while ceramics are more modern and unassuming.

 

Mid-century modern style is the lifeblood of Cult Furniture, with countless chairs, sofas, and tables inspired by this look, you’ll find everything you need to perfect this iconic style in the home.
