Feeling a Little Modern

Posted by 1 on

What is Mid-Century Modern, anyways? Paraphrased from Wikipedia, Mid-Century Modern is an architectural, interior, product and graphic design that describes mid-20th century developments in modern design (and stuff) from the 1930's to the 1960's. Most notibly, we associate the smooth lines, clean edges and dropped shadow designs with mid-century modern. There were many interesting shapes and wood/leather/steel combinations that are often imitated in our present times. It's fascinating really. My love of clean lines and interesting materials was passed down from my Father. On the weekends, I would grab a bowl of cheerios and watch "Ye Old Yankee Workshop" together with my dad.

He insisted on making every piece of furniture by hand when there were perfectly acceptable power tools to help him do the job. I never understood the painstaking process of dove tailing by hand, until my dad made something to show how nice it looked. It's an art form really. Much like hand made wood working is an art, so too, is mid-century modern. Regardless of the process to make the products, the designs catch my eye. Enjoy this week's Wednesday Treasury; it is definitely mid-century modern inspired.

  • This hit home with me as my dad was a carpenter who built our home & much of the furniture in it, too (although he did use power tools!). Wonderful post, and love your finds, too! Thanks so much for including my phone in your collection.

  • Such a great post, and very fitting – my father is a carpenter who built our house & most of the furniture in it – albeit using power tools! Thanks so much for including my phone above, too!
