Elements of Mid-Century Design

Sputnik Chandeliers

One of the best accessories in nearly every mid-century modern room is the sputnik chandelier. Inspired by the shape of the Russian Sputnik space shuttle, these chandeliers look so modern and elegant, but also interesting and quirky! These chandeliers will work in practically any mid-century space; seriously, they're practically a requirement!

Teak

Another tell-tale sign that a room is retro is the use of teak wood in furniture. Teak is a reddish-brown wood that has been called "the strongest wood in the world," meaning that vintage pieces are still around for a reason. Teak is both elegant and durable, beautiful and strong. Teak is so strong because there are natural oils and rubber embedded in its grains, making it practically water resistant, which is why a lot of high-quality outdoor furniture is made with teak. Teak pieces are protected from dry rot, meaning that pieces from the 50s are still just as beautiful today!

Retro Patterns and Colors

One way to add colors is to add area rugs and another way to add a mid-century modern flair to any space is by using bold retro patterns and colors. Interesting color combos make retro patterns some of the most dynamic to decorate with! And mixing those patterns is a ball! Use retro patterns in your space with pillows, furniture, and artwork. In an instant, your room will gain so much color and freshness!

Skinny Leg Furniture

There are many different elements to mid-century modern furniture design, and as I was trying to come up with an all-encompassing term to summarize a diverse thing, I noticed that most mid-century furniture has one thing in common: skinny legs. Now, there are certain pieces with thicker legs, loop-de-loops, and other unique elements. This skinny leggedness gives the furniture a simple, streamlined quality. Something about these pieces just screams "retro" in such a good way.

Starbursts

Starbursts, starbursts everywhere! One of my favorite aspects of this style is the starburst wall decor! Like the Sputnik chandelier, this shape is iconic and instantly brings a classy retro feel to your wall. Starburst wall decor includes mirrors, clocks, and just straight starburst figures. Starbursts are dynamic and bold, just like retro patterns and colors. There is a feather-like softness to the sharp edges of starbursts, giving them so much wonderful texture!.

Gold Accessories

In case you didn't notice, the starbursts and the Sputnik chandeliers are mostly gold! Gold accessories lend a classy retro vibe to a room. I love this fancy gold bar cart, it's so cute and perfectly retro! Or, you can find a gold rack to double as a hold for your reading content.
