What Is Mid-Century Modern Style?
Mid-century modern is an American design movement in interior, product, graphic design, architecture, and urban development that was popular from roughly 1945 to 1969, during the United States’s post–World War II period.

What Are Features Of Mid-Century Modern Style?
Mid-century modern furniture is often very simple with sleek lines and a focus on functionality and uncluttered spaces. Chairs and tables will often consist of simple pieces of material held up by wooden or metal pin-style legs.
Manmade materials (like vinyl, plastic, lucite, and fiberglass) and natural materials (like wood, glass, metal, and marble) are often used together in mid-century furniture design. You also see modern pieces staged with vintage statement pieces in mid-century modern design.
Mid-century modern architecture emphasized the fusion of manmade structure and nature, and mid-century design does the same. Plants are often incorporated into this kind of decor, as are window treatments that encourage a sense of continuity between indoor and outdoor.
Mid-century modern decor uses bright accent colors against primary neutral tones of white, black, and wood tones. In keeping with the idea of combining indoor and outdoor, the mid-century color palette is rooted in nature, with earthy greens, bright fall oranges and yellows, muddy browns, sea blue-greens such as aquamarine and teal, and deep clay red.

How To Decorate A Mid-Century Modern Dining Room?
Build your room around statement pieces. Choose one or two signature mid-century modern pieces of furniture to build your design around. This can be a kidney bean-shaped dining table, an Eames lounge chair, or a metal sunburst wall hanging. Use the rest of your design elements—from the color palette, to artwork, to window treatments—to complement and highlight those statement pieces.
Play with color. One of the things that distinguishes mid-century modernism from minimalism is the playful use of color. Experiment with where you might want to highlight color in your furniture, whether in a bright rug, accented dining room chairs, or graphic artworks. Prioritize retro colors, like sage green, robin’s egg blue, and butter yellow.
Keep it natural. Find a way to ground your design in nature. If you have large windows that look out on a natural landscape, choose interior colors that complement your view. Potted plants are also a great way to introduce nature into your interiors.
