It seems that today, more than ever, the mid century modern look is everywhere.
From famous television shows like Mad Men to modern shows like Billions, you see mid century design featured almost everywhere.
Turn on The Daily Show and you’ll see the guests sitting in classic Knoll office chairs.
Checkout the new hip contemporary restaurant in town, and there’s a good chance you’ll be seated in a chair that was designed in the 1950s—whether it is an Eames, Bertoia, Cherner, or Saarinen.
“Mid-century modern” itself is a difficult term to define.
It broadly describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (roughly 1933 to 1965, though some would argue the period is specifically limited to 1947 to 1957).
But what we do know is that everyone is loving mid century design!
With original mid century pieces being harder to get a hold of because of the saturated market of consumers, more and more brands caught on to the hype and began producing replicas to make them available to the mass market.
Today, you can get mid century replicas and styles almost anywhere and for any budget.
Authentic, original Mid-Century Art is perhaps the hardest to get your hands on for a few different reasons:
- They were not mass produced
- They are bought up by collectors and museums
- They are extremely expensive
But worry not because there are thousands of places you can purchase mid-century inspired art and at any price point!
In this article, we will go through some of the best mid-century inspired pieces that are mass produced and attainable for anyone!
If you want to spruce up your living space, office, store, or restaurant, any of these pieces will bring the mid-century flare you are looking for.
Best of all, no one will have to know you got a bargain deal!
