Mid-Century Modern design began in post-war America in the 1950s. The design industry began trying to break away from the stuffier traditional designs and move toward the modern era. It can be difficult to define, as it’s usually used in reference to architecture, furniture, and graphic design all in one. However, there are several hallmarks of Mid-Century Modern that can make it easier to define.

One such hallmark is a reemergence of wood, especially warm tones. Rich woods like teak and walnut are popular for this design, and used often in all sorts of furniture, from coffee tables and TV stands to bookshelves and dining room sets. Mid-century modern table legs might feature cylindrical tapers or hairpin legs.

Popular colors in the style include mustard yellow and avocado green, along with other kitchy colors like oranges and muted reds. Furniture includes various elements, such as peg legs (both vertical and slightly slanted), warm wood stains, and abstract prints and patterns. Additionally, Mid-Century Modern styles also take advantage of sliding glass doors and large windows.
