The exquisite mid-century modern interior design still endures in this contemporary era.

This effortless style is loved by various generations of homeowners and interior designers because of its clean, organic, and functional look. This iconic style is an inspiration for many contemporary trends and is still a part of today's design conversation.

When designing your home in Singapore, you can fully adapt a mid-century modern approach or select and infuse some mid-century modern elements, like the furniture.

 

What is Mid-Century Modern Design?

The mid-century modern style is known for its simplicity and functionality. The use of clean lines, muted tones, minimal decorations, and a fusion of natural and manmade furniture make up this style.

To achieve mid-century modern aesthetics, make sure that form follows function. 

 

Distinguishing Elements of Mid-Century Modern Design

Distinguishing Elements of Mid-Century Modern Design

  • Form follows function. The mid-century modern design uses a minimalist approach, keeping your area uncluttered and notably functional. The emphasis is on larger, more functional furniture rather than small accent pieces or decorations. When turning your flat into a mid-century modern home, think about quality over quantity.
  • Fusion of organic, manmade, and geometric elements. A mid-century modern home is filled with natural furniture and ornaments with carefully thought-out configurations and touches of man-made materials for additional allure and comfort. Think about a cosy cushioned sofa with tapered wooden legs or a geometric marble coffee table with metal framing. Mid-century modern kitchen backsplashes and countertops feature a lot of marble and natural materials. The famous plastic designer chairs are also part of this style. Some mid-century modern homes combine vintage elements to create a warmer look.
  • Lots of muted and natural tones. White, beige, black, grey, and other neutral colours make up the base of a mid-century modern design. Brighter accents and wood tones are welcome to accentuate the style. These colours are often infused into modern furniture. We love greens, teals, and afternoon yellows in a mid-century modern home. 
  • Outdoor meets indoor design. Mid-century modern design embraces the beauty of nature, thus, incorporating natural elements into your interior style. Wood furniture and ornaments conquer this design, while plants liven up some spots and sometimes serve as the anchor point of the theme. 

With the above elements in mind, creating a mid-century modern home is not as complicated as it seems. Bring the mid-century modern beauty into your flat with these furniture ideas, whether you are working on a larger space or a compact flat.
