Why is Mid-Century Modern Furniture So Popular?

Posted on

Without any extraneous business or glitz, mid century modern furniture gets the job done with it’s style and function. Thus the overwhelming popularity sweeping the nation. Everywhere you look online or in magazines, mid mod inspired designs are filling up the rooms. Due to the variety and availability of the mid mod styles that are reproduced today, it is much more obtainable and affordable than original pieces, and I think the new generations are just fine with it.


I reflect back to my childhood, and remember my parents going “garage selling” and bringing home antiques they called “gems”. It wasn’t until later in my life I understood the fascination. But even then, myself (and my peers) weren’t filling our houses with old antiques, rather realistic reproductions to give it a vintage look, however with a new shine. Because of this trend we have seen the success of many brands such as Pottery Barn, Home Goods, Dot & Bo, etc. This same trend has passed into the furniture space. As most young working professionals enter home ownership, they are faced with the challenge of outfitting the space both desirable, yet without spending a fortune. Economically and aesthetically speaking, Mid Century Modern Inspired furniture gives you the most bang for your buck.


One thing is for sure. We have a great advantage of obtaining such timeless designs, but now we can apply our favorite colors and materials to make it truely unique.  Featured below we have classic mid mod inspired design in the Charli Velvet Sofa which showcase the tufts combined with the wood legs. However, this piece was elevated by pairing the material velvet with the color navy blue.



What Makes Mid Mod Great?  

  • Clean Lines and Organic Form
  • Not too ornate or heavy looking,
  • Wooden legs that allow the furniture to “breath” and give the illusion the room is bigger.
  • Simplicity
  • Easily mix match with other styles
  • Nostalgia (For many the pieces remind them of visits to their grandparents growing up)
  • Occupies little “visual space”



So why isn’t MCM going anywhere soon? It is simple, Good design is timeless and with MCM's simplicity of design, this just helps its resilience.
