Another beautiful day, another inspiring idea: mid-century modern living rooms!
Mid-century modern style is based on the idea that good design constitutes an essential part of good living. Therefore it’s no surprise that the clean-lined, optimistic designs of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s still hold sway over interior decorators working today. These 8 eye-catching mid-century modern living rooms incorporate mid-century pieces to create a breathtaking, modern effect.
