Mid-century modern broadly describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (roughly 1933 to 1965). First attributed to Author Cara Greenberg as the title for her book, Mid-century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s, Greenberg claims she “just made that up as the book’s title”, yet she surely coined a phrase that’s stood the test of time.
Take the Chair
A timeless mid-century inspired piece can have a huge design impact on your living room or home office. At Sklar Furnishings, mid-century modern furniture is alive and shining, with its enduring quality and timeless appeal. Like the Roger Accent Chair with its clever angled frame that looks different from every angle you view it. Besides having a great design, the Roger chair is uber comfortable, and available in a juicy range of colors and finishes.
Mid-Century Adds Glamour. Here’s the Proof:
The Corridor Bar Cabinet by BDI has a classic mid-century modern look that’s sure to top up your style. The double louvered doors provide easy access to everything a well-stocked bar requires. The Corridor Bar Cabinet even comes with its own wooden stemware rack for storing wine glasses, bottles and accessories.
For a mid-century media cabinet that’s big on style and economical on space, the BDI Corridor Quad-Wide Media Cabinet is a great solution. With its clean, louvered wooden doors and vertical wooden slats, it blends well with modern furniture and antique pieces alike.
The two center doors open up for ample storage, and an adjustable shelf to hide speakers and other media equipment. Its black, micro-etched glass top and black steel legs with optional wheels make it a sleek, functional console that can be moved anywhere to suit your entertainment configuration.
