your style is mid-century modern

YOU'RE A MID-CENTURY MODERN STYLE LOVER!


You mad men lover, you! Your favorite style is all about the classic looks and clean lines of the middle of the 20th century.

SO, WHAT THE HECK IS MID-CENTURY MODERN STYLE?

Mid-Century Modern decor is classic Mad Men style at it’s finest. It’s a term that broadly describes decor from roughly the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s. Mid-century modern style consists of a classic understated look with clean, no fuss lines. The key is to not replicate the look of the era exactly, but rather to incorporate pieces from the period into today’s decor. Generally one large piece will set the tone nicely. Don’t get too matchy-matchy!
