Mid Century Modern

Mid-Century modern is an architectural, interior, product and graphic design that generally describes mid-20th century developments in modern design, architecture and urban development from roughly 1933 to 1965. Many consider Frank Lloyd Wright’s principle movement of organic architecture combined with Arts and Crafts as an American jumping point for the aesthetic of Mid-Century Modern. It’s a thriving current design style that can be mixed and matched with most every look. Don’t let the word modern scare you… the style itself is more about straight, clean lines and crisp architecture.

Here are some of my favorite mid century modern inspired interiors:

It’s easy to mix and match certain furniture pieces into a design. These pieces have versatility and classic style that can serve as statement pieces in a room. Here are some examples:

And no post on Mid Century Modern style would be complete without a reference to Frank Lloyd Wright. Here’s his famous work of art,  Falling Water.
