It is quite possible that this is the first encounter with the term ' mid century modern' in a forest of interior design terms. A design movement that emerged between the 1930s and 1960s and revolves around authenticity and pure craftsmanship. But here it comes, because where the style may not immediately ring a bell, it is almost inevitable that you will regularly come across mid-century furniture. What it is about the mid century modern style is that it is timelessness itself. This is due to the use of geometric shapes, sleek silhouettes, light colors and natural materials. With the emphasis on the latter, because expect a lot of wood (read: wood color and deep brown). Bring the outside in. What doesn't come with this style? Lots of frills. Less is more.
Translate the previous to the mid century modern sofa and you will see a lot of wood, organic shapes and a light color palette. Original, rich in contrast and functional without being too outspoken. Very similar to the Scandinavian style with a splash of color here and there: from terracotta to moss green. The advantage of a mid century sofa is that it is always possible, because of its timeless modern-classic character. Give the vintage piece of furniture a place in a Scandinavian, retro or eclectic interior and make a statement. Years of fun guaranteed!
