What is the difference between mid-century modern and modern design?
Often used interchangeably, mid-century modern and modern design have a few key differences. Most notably, mid-century modern design is more organic with a retro feel that utilizes saturated colors in addition to dynamic decorative accents that won’t compromise function over form.
Alternatively, modern design can be many things all at once and draws from multiple influences. Modern design is most likely to blend Scandinavian, minimalistic, farmhouse, glam, bohemian, industrial, contemporary and/or mid-century modern design elements.
So, are you a mid-century modern purist or do you lean toward modern fusion? Let us know!
As always enjoy our picks and have a wonderful weekend.
