Friday Inspiration - Mid-Century Modern Style

Today's Friday Inspiration is all about Mid-Century Modern Design and how to get the look with furniture and accessories from Argos:-

Mid-Century Modern describes a design period from roughly 1933 - 1965 where designers like Charles Eames and British Furniture Manufacturer Ecrol were designing modern pieces of furniture with clean lines, excellent quality and using colours like grey, olive green and sludgy yellow and mixing wood, metal and plastic. I try and hunt out original Mid-Century Modern pieces at flea markets and junk shops and I have successfully bought a few original items for my home. I love how the classic designs are still very on trend 40 years on. I actually like to mix old and new to create an eclectic look. There are lots of great new Mid-Century Modern inspired furniture and accessories out there at the moment, like this oak sideboard featured below which can be found here at Argos. I think this style works really well in our Living and Dining spaces because here the furniture is key to the rooms overall design. A classic retro style sofa will give your room a trendy look and a sideboard is a great addition, proving storage and somewhere to display artwork, vases and lamps. How about adding a slightly tropical statement wallpaper too, think giant palm leaves, flamingos and banana leaf prints. I'm also loving the Emmett oak dining table and chairs with black faux leather seat pads from Argos, the set reminds me of Danish Mid-Century Modern chairs. To find more dining room furniture take a look here at the rest of Argos furniture collection.
