Mid-century modern design became popular during the 1930s-1940s but (lucky for you, my friend) never quite went out of style. These days, mid-century modern (MCM) is everywhere and partners well with both vintage and modern homes interchangeably. At its core, functionality is the most important thing in MCM design. This style of interior design is timeless and relatively easy to incorporate into your home.

If the Mid-Century Modern design style is your jam, you're all about clean lines and a combination of natural and man-made materials. A mix of muted tones and vibrant colors seems to catch your eye.
The classic color palette staples of the MCM style are ochre, orange, brown, and mustard yellow. Mixed with blues, greens, and other colors, or used on their own for a monochromatic look - this color palette is the look you crave in your home.
Well-made, functional, and timeless. That's what MCM lovers look for and why you probably find yourself shopping at antique stores and flea markets more than the latest trends. But, just in case you need a little shopping inspiration, you can shop these furniture options below!
One of the tell-tale signs of an MCM design style is the lighting. Fixtures like this sputnik light are iconic and this simple clean-lined floor lamp is a timeless staple that can work within any home or style. Shop these iconic pieces below!
Organic, geometric, and bold. That's a few of the ways that lovers of the MCM design style describe what they like when it comes to decorating their homes. Pulling elements from the outside in, playing off of fun art and geometric wallpapers and area rugs, and adding a splash of color is all classic MCM. Shop a few of my favorite MCM decor items below!
