9 Midcentury-Style Pieces for Your Home

The distinct aesthetic of Midcentury Modern design calls to mind a specific era in history — a time when the U.S. enjoyed a post-war Baby Boom, the Rat Pack ruled Vegas and Mad Men chased the American dream. In the decades since, the sleek look has become a classic, just as relevant in the 21st century as it was in the 1950s and ’60s. Have a look at these hip home furnishings that can add Midcentury style to your home.
