* Style Guide – Mid Century Modern *
The Mid-Century Modern style gives us clean lines, gentle organic curves, a passion for different materials and shapes.
Mid-Century Modern style represents a combination of post World War II practicality, 50’s era optimism, 60’s era earthiness, and 70’s era tones and textures neatly wrapped up in a stylish ode to Scandinavian simplicity.
The vibe is fresh and poppy, retro-tinged, and completely alluring with its dedication to comfort and practicality wrapped up in beautiful design that never goes out of style. It consists of a classic, understated look, with clean lines and minimal fuss. It also has minimal ornamentation and an exploration of different, and sometimes contrasting materials.
Key elements are; functionality, organic and geometric forms, sleek lines, rich colours, and character via natural woods, greens, oranges, and earthy tones.
Mid-century design meets touches of rustic and industrial in the handsome Haymarket pendant from the ED Ellen DeGeneres collection by Generation Lighting. Layered concentric tiers constructed of cast metal add depth and dimension while a painted white interior catches the light. The artisanal hand-applied Weathered Galvanized finish recreates the authenticity of vintage industrial fixtures.
