Mid century modern style (MCM) originated from the mid-20th century furnishings marked by simple, functional wooden pieces from teak and curved designs. The mid century evolved as a response to the World War II era. The interior designers and architects developed interior design ideas that bridged mass production and technology with the future outlook. The style is rooted in simple lines, functionality, and clean lines. Teak is preferred as it’s a reflection of rich color and durability. Rosewood and oak are also commonly used for furniture like storage cabinets, tables, and chairs. Metal, glass, and vinyl are used along wood to complement the look (furnishings in curved shapes).

The color hues are marked by bold accents complementing the geometric-shaped furniture. For better results, you cannot combine your mid century modern furniture pieces from contrasting wood types. Ebony and Zebra lined wood will be disastrous for an MCM style. When selecting your antique MCM accent chair, ensure it’s steady to handle the pressure. Identifying an MCM piece of furniture isn’t easy but you can tell with a few apparent clues like pegged legs, emphasis on function, simplicity, organic forms, and manufacturing country like Denmark, Yugoslavia, Japan, Italy, and the USA. At DC Interiors & Renovations, our expert team of interior designers, architects, subcontractors, and craftsmanship will help curate your desired house, fitting the mid-century style suiting your preferences and tastes.

To attain an MCM look, you need to combine heights and textures. We all love a low-height MCM chair and MCM coffee table, bottom pillows, and jewels and try to maintain a clutter-free atmosphere. Still, you can play with the meter by adding a jacked bottom beacon or a candlestick holder or varying your Mid century modern cabinetwork heights to avoid the space looking so uniform. It’s established that clean lines and minimalism are a dateless look that blends well with other types of scenery. Therefore, incorporate your bespoke abstract oils and curated puppets for a magnifique look. It also adds personality to your MCM spaces.
