Inspiring Ways to Add a Mid-Century Modern Design to Your House

The mid-century modern design looks like it’s here to stay, and we love that!
The term was coined during the mid-1950’s and, in the 80’s, author Cara Greenberg made sure to reaffirm it, making it an officially recognized design movement. Luckily, this movement survived until now, and everyone is going crazy about it. And with good reason, because with its simple lines and retro style, mid-century design is always a guarantee that your house will look extremely fancy.
So today we made a selection of a few inspiring and fundamental mid-century modern items that for sure will make your home design pop out.
Lighting
Lighting design is a big deal on what concerns mid-century design. And these retro light fixtures are more than just that: they are eye-catching pieces that bring out the best in a room. In this case, they are the Etta Round and the Turner Floor by DelightFULL’s Heritage Collection, and they look absolutely stunning.

Vibrant Colors
Bold colors are very characteristic of the mid-century style because they’re a recollection of the classic color schemes used during the 1950’s and 1960’s that featured mustard and bright yellow, avocado green, tangerine and various shades of blue. They always make sure to look super cool in whichever room you prefer to use them.
