Characterised by clean lines and functional form, mid-century furniture and 70s inspired interiors have made a strong comeback this season.
The mid-century movement spanned from 1945 to 1975 and included architecture, interior, and graphic design. Classic furniture designs in this style used simple geometric shapes which emphasised curves and introduced colour and warmth through upholstery and the application of timber veneer and brass hardware. It was also the era of designers Charles and Ray Eames, Arne Jacobsen and Eileen Gray whose iconic furniture and lighting is still highly coveted today.
Incorporating brights and earthy tones such as burnt orange and olive, the traditional mid-century palette is ideally suited to today’s modern schemes. From storage and seating to sleek scissor lamps these distinctive pieces are at once timeless and forward-looking; their bold, no-nonsense forms the perfect accompaniment to the raw elements of industrial spaces and warehouse homes.
