In this article, the Best Design Books blog returns to talk about yet another exciting design movement, the Mid-century style. Under the tagline of forecasting the future of design and home interiors, Trendbook has created a series of inspirational moodboard with the purpose of providing inspiration for one to remodel their own home interiors, so let’s take a look at the characteristics of this design style as well as a series of furniture designs that best represent it.
Nowadays, Mid-century interiors are all about organic style and ease of living, and that’s reflected in their structure. The simple lines and pure forms of mid-century styles are what makes it so iconic. It is simple without being boring but eye-catching without being fussy. Furniture is kept simple and without unnecessary elements.

The mid-century days were so rich with innovative and talented artists. Their work reflected bold new territory in the art world, and it complements this groundbreaking style perfectly. Finish the room with classic mid-century art and accents.
The mid-century style is unique in that it’s largely driven by innovative mass-produced furniture and accents. Warm and earthy colors, largely through the natural woods that predominate, are central to the midcentury palette. Yet it wouldn’t do for this look to come across as too quiet, and a few strokes of rich, saturated color give it strength and presence.
The classic mid-century lighting pumps up a room’s drama. Although its forms are sculptural enough to double as art, the function remains paramount. Yet lighting fixtures from this era are so striking that they’ve become design motifs all their own.
