What is meant by ‘Mid-century Modern’ in decorating?
Mid Century Modern (MCM) is a descriptor of just a section of the much larger movement, American Modernism.
However MCM style and sensibility will affect architecture, textiles, furniture, art and home décor. MCM decorating may consist of:
Geometric Shapes (Circles, rectangles, squares, triangles, etc.– they have a clear edge, and are often symmetrical) or
Organic Shapes (Organic shapes have a natural look and flowing curving appearance. They are typically irregular and asymmetrical) or Abstract Shapes.
Pops of citrus or bright colors offset organic and wood tones brought into a Mid Century Décor. Starburst clocks and Space Age lamps occur in an MCM decorating plan.
