If the fact that it’s still a top style seller some 80 years after making its debut doesn’t tell you, we will: Midcentury modern design is timeless. While the term midcentury references furniture designed in the 1940s-70s, it’s not also come to serve as an umbrella term for contemporary furniture designed in the style of the mid-20th century (think clean lines, low-slung profiles, and textural, natural materials). As with any style, the quickest way to incorporate the look into your home is by starting with big furniture pieces, like a sofa in your living room. Luckily, there are plenty of quality sofas that fit the aesthetic to choose from. Once you have one nailed down, you can refine the look with art and other decorative objects.
