  • Boundless Creativity in Pure Form and Natural Color

    Designers from the mid-century period achieved a synthesis of pure form in design drawn from a close study of geometry and engineering to create innovative furnishings. Similarly, they drew from a love of nature to develop colors that would strike the eye as well as the heart. Neutral tones were paired with brights, primary colors. Many of the tones are drawn from lush environments that have an immediate emotional resonance.

  • Among the many innovations introduced by mid-century modern designers, the concept of indoor-outdoor living continues to be felt across the spectrum of furniture manufacturing. Combining an emphasis on natural forms with a sustained examination of modern living, these designs seek to collapse the boundary between inside and outside. These essential designs pair well with plants and other organic forms.
