MIDCENTURY MATCH

Midcentury Modern broadly describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century— roughly 1933 to 1965, but some would say the period is specifically limited to 1947 to 1957. A great number of homes built in this period are now and have been remodeled all across the U.S.

Generally, Midcentury Modern design is characterized by clean, unadorned interiors. Many designers deploy the use of natural materials, and there’s an emphasis on the horizontal line, with clean, unfussy furniture and cabinets.

According to an article from curbed.com, “Most of the designs of the Midcentury had gone out of fashion by the late 60s, but in the early- to mid-eighties, interest in the period began to return. Within a decade, vintage Midcentury designs were increasingly popular, and several events helped to boost Midcentury Modern’s appeal from a niche group of design enthusiasts into the mainstream.”

We think Midcentury Modern design is marvelous, and a number of our Greenfield dealers do too! Take a look at some of these Midcentury design-influenced rooms.
