  • Mid-century modern sofas often place emphasis on the frame. Cushions may be both high and deep, but they command attention because of how they're framed, usually by wood and tapered legs.
  • Tapering is a common design element in mid-century modern furniture. Legs that skew slightly outward allow substantial pieces like a sofa or larger table to remain stable while highlighting delicate woodturning details.
  • Mid-century rugs can bring the whole look together. Try an expansive area rug under a coffee table with signature mid-century details like built-in drawers with knobs or sliding credenza-inspired doors.

Mid-Century Modern Lighting

Test the waters of mid-century modern furniture, lighting & decor with a well-placed light fixture. Once you install a chandelier or warm up a corner with a floor lamp, you may realize you want the whole room to reflect the look.

  • Bubble shades are a hallmark of mid-century lighting. These round glass shades help diffuse light in all directions for a broad, comfortable glow. While LED lighting rarely needs care, these shades are still easy to maintain over time.
  • Rods create the elongated proportions that are a crucial part of this design look. The slim style is great for pendants, chandeliers and table lamps.
  • Throw a design curve into the mix with exposed Edison-inspired bulbs. This is an incredible way to make your mid-century space feel modern.
