Mid Century Kitchen Table

Mid Century Kitchen Table

Delightfully playful, stylistically sculptural, and a touch otherworldly, Mid-Century Modern furniture is our not-so-secret obsession. A catchall term used to classify designs produced during the Mid 20th Century, Mid-Century Modern furniture is easily identifiable by its swooped forms, teak frames, and bold-colored upholstery. Iconic makers include Adrian Pearsall, Milo Baughman, and, of course, Charles and Ray Eames.

For those who dream in shades of cool California fruit trees (think sunburst orange and creamy avocado), like their teak-oiled arms accented with a bit of bright brass, and crush on anything Eames: meet Mid-Century Modern. A term used to classify furniture constructed between 1945 to 1970, Mid-Century Modern style encompasses everything from sparse Scandinavian pieces to exotic Brazilian masterpieces decked out in pillow-padded frames and butter-like hides. It’s a care-free, effortless style that brinks on boho, but thanks to integrated elements of Danish Modernism, never veers into overly layered or how-exactly-do-I-clean-that? territory.

In its hey-day Mid-Century Modern furniture was not one to play it demure color-wise. Upholstery in shades of saffron, cobalt, and poppy was commonplace. Updated for a new millennium, however; we’re inclined to favor shade-dwelling colors a bit more than the full-sun showstoppers. Mid-Century shapes look divine when cloaked in emerald, navy, and oxblood velvets. With tables and case goods, opt for pieces with slightly darker finishes and brass or turquoise hardware or inlays. Unexpected metallic or stone will make for a room that reads more ambiguous (and glam) than the usual, brisk Scandinavian look.

Because the dining room is the hub of home entertaining, finding the right dining table to accommodate family and friends is a worthy investment. A good table can last decades — it can even be passed down from generation to generation. Besides being above all practical, a dining table also sets the overall midcentury mood of the space: a lightly stained wooden set for four exudes an informal, casual feel, while a formal table for 10 evokes sophistication and formality. As you get ready to purchase a new one, consider what works for you and your family. More

New materials like bent plywood, fiberglass, and acrylic made it easy for designers to forge into previously uncharted territory. For the first time, they were able to produce furniture that wasn’t hammered and nailed together so much as it was sculpted. Additionally, manufactures like Knoll and Herman Miller provided designers with large-scale platforms on which to promote and distribute their designs. These manufacturers helped Mid-Century Modernism permeate the cultural consciousness, which in large part, has led to its enduring appeal.

Don’t get us wrong, we love a strong, silent type with masculine right angles—Jens Risom and Finn Juhl furniture add presence to a room like no other. But with that said, there is something oh-so refreshing about the unrehearsed contours of an amoeba-like coffee table. Their off-balance proportions keep a room from feeling overly predictable, and encourages the kind of casual, dine-on-the-floor atmosphere that purportedly advances any swinging soiree. They also beckon to eclecticism, welcoming tasteful layers and bold accents like oversized op art.
