The modern take on 20th-century design has a fresh Scandi feel and a cool colour palette. When choosing paint shades, fabrics and furnishings, go for an understated palette of greys and blues for a mid-century style living room.
If you really want to complete the mid-century look, seek out design classics. Whether it’s a beautiful leather Eames chair, an original Ercol sofa or a sleek sideboard – make this statement piece your focal point. You’ll find original furniture in antiques and second-hand shops, at vintage fairs and online auctions.
But if your budget won’t stretch to these investment pieces, you’ll be pleased to hear that the high street offers plenty of mid-century inspired pieces. Look for white and wood furniture, such as warm wood sideboards with white doors, or cute little nests of tables similar to the classic Ercol pebble designs.
