Mid Century Modern Furniture - Today's Options

Posted on

Over the last 15 years, furniture has been changing back to 60’s styles. New collections are built and inspired by old lines and designers. The reproduced pieces are made available in a huge range of both quality and price.

Mid In Mod was born out of our desire to provide furniture lovers the best value where style meets affordability. We loved the old styles, so we set out to keep them alive by producing them at a price with reach.

With the rise of popularity in apartment and downtown living, a great need for sleek mid century designs was in great demand.

Unfortunately, original versions of Mid Century Sofas are harder to find and this is reflected in the cost. Classic Mid Mod sofas will fetch in the price range of $3,000- $10,000, even though they are second hand and used. See below example:

(Original Mid Mod Sofas similar to the one pictured above often sell from $3k-$10K)

Now the good news is we are making mid century inspired designs at a price much more obtainable. Take for example the Kano 3 seater tufted sofa. This mid century modern reproduced sofa can be purchase for $749.

MCM enthusiast seem to frown upon the use of the term by big brands. In the modern furniture industry, today's retailers Crate & Barrel, West Elm, Article, Joybird, Apt2B, Apartment Therapy, Wayfair are using Mid Century Modern Furniture as their product descriptions. But is it right to use?  This descriptions create confusion on the buyer’s perception, which leads unwanted discussions.
