I grew up in a Mid Century Modern home and I continue to be inspired by the iconic design of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
The post war years introduced us to many design elements we still love in our contemporary homes, such as large windows, open plan and indoor outdoor living.
It was a time of experimentation in furniture design with new materials and techniques. Mass produced furniture and homewares in chrome, fibreglass, plastic and moulded plywood made good design accessible for everyone.
Mid Century pieces work well in today’s homes with both antique and contemporary items. Must be something about their clean lines and inherent optimism!
On Thursday 30 August, I’ll be giving a Mid Century Modern Style presentation at Kimberly James Furniture.
Whether you’re a keen bargain hunter, want to refresh family treasures or select contemporary pieces with a Mid Century influence, my presentation will be packed with plenty of take-away styling ideas and information. Come and explore Mid Century styles that have stood the test of time (plus a few that should be left in the past).
