Classic Mid-Century Modern Living

This Mid-Century style great room is both alluring to guests and comfortable for anyone to spend time and lounge in. Classic elements like Herman Miller’s Eames Lounge chair and mixed of woods like teak, rosewood, and American walnut add interest with lots of warm tones to offset cool green/gray walls and navy blue accents. The modern blue sectional sofa is the perfect element to anchor this casual living room and contrast original vintage Danish modern pieces. The white shag rug adds interest and a pop of white to keep things in this earthy den bright. We matched classic modern Mid-Century style sconces with the dramatic brushed silver chandelier in the adjacent dining room to add interest and character for an approachable and alluring quality.

A contrasting gray wall color on accent walls with dark trim paint ties in multiple patterns and textures created by art and decorative rugs in these spaces. We created a seating area near the back window off the home office to lounge and have a snifter of Bourbon after a hard day’s work. This space us for unwinding and gives a strong feeling, a sort of Mad Men style that captures a nostalgia for a masculine and Mid-Century space that might have come straight out of the late 1950’s with an understated glamour. The dining room has several serene art pieces and flanking mirrors that add interest and reflect light from windows across the room. Large indoor green plants give the space life and add an additional supporting shade of green to the townhouse’s color palette. The focus of this design’s function was to create a space for its owners to sit back, get comfy and take in a bit of color and to feel at home.
