How do you know what quality furniture is, and how do you know if it will look good in your room? Let’s talk about five of our most popular mid-century modern decor pieces that are versatile and look great in any room.

Understanding MCM Decor

As one of the most popular design styles in the past century, mid-century modern design evolved from a post-World War II environment. Designers were eager to develop new ideas that combined the latest technology and mass production from the first half of the century with improved technology and an optimistic look for the future. Mid-century modern decor is characterized by its minimalistic style and simple patterns and shapes. Furniture pieces are often made from beautiful wood and are organic. Bright, oversaturated colors are standard, but many pieces also contain muted patterns and colors.

It’s manufactured with a European upholstery method that provides clean, tailored lines that look stunning in any room. Are you looking for a specific type of leather or fabric?
