The classification of furniture & fixture designs are mainly by way of the period in which the design was first adopted, baptized, or made widely available. Of course, there are umpteen examples of furniture designs classified by their materials and their country of origin, but in no other industry is the trend of naming a particular product style by “the period of origin” as prevalent as it is in the case of the furniture industry.     

Mid-century furniture is a style that was first coined in the United States but like everything else American during that era, the cues were heavily influenced by Scandinavian, German & generally, by European design. Typically, mid-century furniture design refers to the peculiar styling elements right after World War 2. However, you can also get away with bucketing furniture styles from a couple of decades ago. We’ll get to that later. 

Anyway, mid-century furniture is characterized by sleek, geometrical design, thin frames, lack of clutter/carvings & a number of other characteristics that we list below. Mid-century furniture has its roots in the industrial revolution, which paved the way for use of modern materials in everyday furniture, see our industrial furniture collection here

    As we mentioned earlier, mid-century furniture takes its cues heavily from the industrial furniture revolution & traces of the victorian and provincial periods. While mid-century furniture predominantly refers to the middle of the 20th-century styles, the 1930s & 1940s was the transition from the Industrial era & vintage style furniture amalgamating into modern design philosophies. 

    As a result, furniture designs that are still sleek, thin, geometric, and subtly curvy with ornate carvings with a slightly rougher finish and ornate carvings to a certain extent, are interchangeably called vintage mid-century furniture.

    Heavily influenced by the Scandinavian school of thought, modern mid-century furniture is minimalist, made of both traditional & modern materials combined, straight lines, heavy curves, and a lot of randomized designs.

    Mild colors are predominant in these furniture styles, and most materials are suspended on an extremely thin frame. A popular theory that goes about indicates that the reason for this was due to the fact that the modern mid-century furniture movement took off right after world war 2 and the great depression.

    During these times, thick furniture meant a whole lot more raw materials. Extravagant vintage-style furniture that preceded this style meant whole more man-hours, expensive metals to incorporate & a lot of wages to pay. These factors made the olden styles obsolete and too expensive a trend to continue.

    Today’s modern & contemporary furniture styles that feature brushed stainless steel, marble claddings, and so on take a lot of cues from mid-century furniture. Ironically, the design philosophy that dominated most of the 20th century, one that has proven to be one of the most successful centuries in all of mankind’s history, was started as a cost-cutting measure.

    The love story with mid-centry styles continued and today; contemporary, sleek yet strong furniture has a wide acceptance among several most folks

    If compared thoroughly, the difference between mid-century architecture and furniture designs vis-a-vis 21st century’s modern designs are negligible. The only discernable aspects that contemporary furniture makes use of a lot brighter elements & hues.

    Additionally, contemporary furniture of today also means heavy use of materials that only the 21st century is privy of including plywood/plywood, engineered wood, stainless steel, aluminum and a whole host of different materials that are shine through & compliment deep colors rather well.
