Living in Southern California, it's hard to miss the influence of Mid Century Modern design. But if you're like me and don't have the budget - or desire - to go all-in on mid century home decor, it can be intimidating to approach such iconic furniture design.
To help you out, I've pulled together some of my favorite, versatile mid century style furnishings. You'll notice a few common characteristics that classify mid century decor:
- Straight, clean lines accented with smooth, curved angles
- Solid wood construction shines in natural finishes
- Bold lighting as a form of sculptural art
My recommendation for making the most of these simple, yet beautiful design elements? Pair mid century furniture with unexpected accents! A clean-lined sofa gets new life from a cluster of bohemian pillows. Modern acrylic chairs make a mid century dining table stand out. And a custom printed fabric lampshade brings surprising pop to a mod desk lamp.
Enjoy experimenting with these Mid Century style decor finds to create a space all your own!
