mid century modern

Currently we are seeing a rival of what is called mid century modern, furniture from the 50s 60s and 70s, and if you are in your 30s-40s, its probably a look you remember your parents having. Items such as the teak sideboard adorned with a teak deer, took pride of place in the living room, and the dinning table and chairs all matched, heck you may even of had some flying ducks on the wall!

Its a style that many a high street store is re-creating with a bang up to date feel, pop into habitat or Ikea and you are bound to come across a sideboard or two, check out the Orla Kiely sideboard too.
But you can get this look much more cheaply by searching through the thrift/Charity stores, there are some real gems to be found out there as people are finding out. (see below living etc forum)

  1. Thanks for the links to our sites. We are certainly seeing a high level of interest in our Originals collection, which really captures this mid-century modern feel and we have a couple of additions to this happening this year....
