Mid-Century Madness

by Jon Peters

I’m pretty sure our whole office loves and is obsessed with mid-century modern. Not only are modern interiors in high demand by our clients these days, but the look is timelessly classic no matter which decade you’re in. The style is minimal and clean-lined, with low laying straight-lined or streamlined furniture. I think what I like most about mid-century modern homes is that they typically have large picture windows, letting natural surroundings do most of the talking. There is literally no other design style that I could see myself not getting tired of day-in and day-out. Not only is the architecture perfectly my style, with modern clean lines and huge windows, but some of the best furniture comes from this design era, and lighting fixtures are funky and fashionable. What’s your favorite design style?

    You’ve got us swooning! We’re huge fans of the tufted sofas, warm walnut credenzas, and the pops of saturated color. Mid Century Modern looks smart but totally livable. We could cozy up in any of these rooms. http://www.facebook.com/joshursodesign
