Edmonton Interior Decorator | Design Style | Mid-Century Modern

Mid-Century Modern is a period in design history that describes the post-World War II period of sleek,functional furniture and architecture. Henry Miller, Ray and Charles Eames, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe were all extremely influential on mid-century modern design.

Hallmarks of a Mid Century Modern design would include: Neutral colours in white and off white, geometric shapes, sunburst mirror, plastic, glass and plexiglass furniture, sparse window treatment, shell curtains to divide rooms, and industrial looking light fixtures.

Other prominent designers of this time included: Harry Bertoia, Arne Jacobsen, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, Vernor Panton, Eero Saarine and Hans Wegner.

Here are a few, wonderful examples of classic Mid-Century Modern design:
