The Making of Mid-Century Modern

You don’t have to watch a lot of HGTV to realize how popular Mid-Century Modern design is. It’s everywhere! From homes to hotels to restaurants, it’s not hard to come across a hairpin leg table or a chair with a traditional material in an untraditional, geometric shape.

When decorating a home, however, it can be easy to go overboard. Mid-Century Modern style allows no room for clutter and very few knick-knacks, so this can be challenging.

Recently, Staging Dallas was offered the chance to stage a home that had been on the market for 70 days, unstaged.

Pattern + Texture

Chairs and couches are probably the most simple way to incorporate this Mid-Century Modern characteristic. As you can see above, the chair has this gorgeous shade of beige with a texture visible enough to see across the room. We highlighted both the chair and couch with this vintage-inspired, color coordinating throw pillow for that final touch.

Prior to the emergence of Mid-Century Modern in the 60s and 70s (pre-WWII), there was a huge emphasis on more ornate furniture, heavy with elaborate details. At the end of WWII when Mid-Century Modern surged through-out the United States, design became all about lines, angles, and shapes. Like the country, this was a more straight-forward and simple approach to life unlike previous war-ridden years.

Bold Accents

Last post we talked a lot about neutral colors. Neutral colors are still important in a modern home, but their equally as important as bold accents. Here we have more muted grays and beiges through out the space for a more natural, organic look, but the pop of color in the chairs gives it that Mid-Century look we were going for.
