Does Renaissance art make you yawn? Are you one of those who watch Pulp Fiction just to hear Dick Dale’s iconic heavy metal soundtrack-Misirlou? Is Mad Men your favourite American period drama? Then, you have to admit, your style is all-time Mid-century Modern!

As the name suggests, Mid-century is the era from mid-1940s to 1970s, often known as the era of style! And why not? From Hollywood regency to Danish modern, this era indeed gave us countless classic styles that still continue to reign the décor journals of renowned designers across the globe.

Midcentury décor exemplifies organic style and comfort living. It is all about simplicity, minimalism and natural elements.

This type of décor often features a single design, encompassing different shapes, graphic patterns and eccentric accents. It provides a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors. You will also witness a lot of pared-down forms and contemporary motifs that give this décor its unique identity.

So let’s travel back in time and bring alive those designs which still continue to be at the apex of the decor world!
