Mid-Century Milieu

Emerging after World War II, Mid-Century Modern design could be found in architecture and interiors, each milieu reflecting the vintage flair for which this style is known. Bringing modernism into America’s post-war suburbs was the hallmark of this time period. After the economic effects of the 1930’s depression and then the war, designers focused on creating affordable, well-designed home furnishings and sought to reconcile craftsmanship with mass production. Clean, sleek lines with an emphasis on form and function were the innovations spurred on by new, modern materials and new technologies developed during the war. The set design on AMC’s Mad Men is the perfect example of the Mid-Century Modern trend. At the April Market, Currey & Company will introduce new lighting and furniture with a mid-20th century style.
