I was reading the other day and once again came across the term Mid-Century Modern. I kind of clench my jaw whenever I see or hear this term. So to clarify things in my mind I looked up its definition.
Mid-Century Modern broadly describes architecture, furniture and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century. This is roughly the period from 1922-1965. Although there is some argument that it is specifically limited to 1947-1957.
Which ever time frame you use, my date of birth falls within that range. So, you see, I am Mid-Century Modern. That makes me feel rather old. And so I clench my jaw just a little whenever I hear it.
I grew up with Mid-Century Modern, so no, I have no desire to use it in my home. What about you? Is this a style you would like to use in your home?
