Mid-Century modern is an architectural, interior, product and graphic design that generally describes mid-20th century developments in modern design, architecture and urban development from roughly 1933 to 1965.
As Bradley Quinn in his monograph of Mid-century design illustrates, “Mid-century homes were inhabited by a new generation of Americans, who altered their expectations of the home as they grew to appreciate novel types of living spaces and the landscapes surrounding them.” The new homes based on early-twentieth Century modernist principles celebrated the advent of high-tech, labor-saving appliances and an appreciation of space and materials for their true beauty over visual noise. The result was a uniquely American style: Mid-Century Modern.
