Mid-Century Modern | Interiors – Furniture – Design Details

“The architects and designers of the mid-twentieth century pioneered a fresh vision for domestic life, reviving the modernist concepts of space planning and stylistic harmony to create flexible, well-balanced interiors. Many decades later, the passion for mid-century modernism is here to stay, with a grand resurgence of the coiours, patterns and motifs that graced the interiors of the 1950s, evident in designs for contemporary wallpapers, fabrics and ceramics.“

Matching piping along the seams reinforces the clean lines of Bantam’s frame. Tapered solid wood legs lend visual lightness. Made in U.S.A.”

Scandinavia Dreaming – Gestalten

“Finland is not usually considered part of Scandinavia, although it is the birthplace of a long list of designers and brands – Iittala, Artek or Nokia – that most would associate with Scandinavian style.
