The mid-century modern style works exceptionally well for all sorts of families, those with children, couples, and singles. This iconic style, often with no Mid-Century house required, is popular from decade to decade.

From an open loft in a renovated historic factory to a high-rise condominium with an ocean view to a small, but cozy big city apartment, Mid-Century Modern can be infused into any sophisticated gentleman’s choice of abode.

Following you will find seven of our favorite tips, today’s bachelor can use to add Mid-Century Modern flair.

First Impressions

Consider the entryway as your chance to create a welcoming environment for guests and family alike. Today, you’ll find a large selection of reproduction or gently used furniture and accessories to love. Mid-Century Modern sideboards and console tables are uniquely suited to the foyer or entry hall.


Selecting Mid-Century lighting can be an incredible adventure because of the seemingly endless choices you will find. Switching out light fixtures can change the entire look of a room. Lamps, both table and floor can be added to complement your furnishings. You’ll find stunning lamps in metal, white, black and a myriad of colors. 


Seating is where Mid-Century shines. Designers of that period excelled. Comfortable lounge chairs and sofas come in many fabrics and colors. Don’t forget to add easily movable and versatile plump ottomans for extra seating as seen in the room at the top of this post.

Accessories for the Mid-Century Modern Home

Accessories add visual interest to tabletops and shelves. You’ll be able to choose from glass, ceramic, stoneware and much more. Our favorites include those iconic Mid-Century vases and figurines in muted colors. A fortunate few of us are privileged to enjoy grandmother’s cherished collection. Those who don’t have access to such treasures might consider starting a collection of their own.

Wall Art for All

Add more of your personality with paintings, prints, posters, and wall hangings (does anything say Mid-Century fun style more than those handwoven wall hangings?) Living room, dining room hallway and bedroom, any space can benefit from wall art.

Softly Does It

Soft furnishings can add those essential finishing touches. Rugs, pillows, and throws fit right into modern style. Handcrafted rugs, geometrics and faux fur all have a place in Mid-Century interiors. Throws of all sorts, especially crocheted or knitted ones, have a comfortable, cozy look. Pillows can add color to the bed or sofa.
