Interested in mid-century modern design and minimalist style? Get the look with these tips from us. The mid-century style draws on mid-20th-century design and architecture. It’s all about eliminating excess to achieve the look. Keep these tips in mind. One, form follows function, less is more in mid-century lighting and design. Two, look for pieces that are practical and uncluttered with clean simple lines to let there be light. Three, thoughtful craftsmanship is a hallmark of the style. Lamps are often ceramic and feature a handcrafted look with interesting forms or patterns. Four, make a statement with sculptural eye-catching fixtures such as a Sputnik style chandelier. Five, keep it simple. Simple material takes center stage. Think natural wood metal and glass elements clear or textured. Glass pendants offer a clean simple profile. Six, keep metals and woods unadorned like displayed wood legs on this design. Seven, for color, use natural muted color tones. Eight, for sofas and chairs, if you want more color, pops with wall art pillows rugs or other accessories. These pieces are also great for adding pattern and texture. Nine, consider keeping walls white to let your mid-century designs stand out. Ten, have a centerpiece. Build your room around a single iconic piece. We love rooms with a stunning chandelier or comfortable stylish sofa. It’s easy to achieve mid-century modern in your home.
