Mid-Century Modern Dining Room

Creating Your Mid-Century Modern Dining Room

Mid-Century Modern design is all about fusing the nostalgic look of the 1950s with exceptional craftsmanship and style. If you’ve ever watched an episode of Mad Men, then you’ve seen Mid-Century Modern design at work. It’s elegant and classy with a twist of vintage to make it a fun and functional look for any room in your home. We love the look when it is done carefully and tastefully, especially in the dining room. So if you are hoping to achieve a mid-century modern dining room, take these steps to design your space in a way that is purposeful and not too kitschy:

1) Choose Timeless Furniture & Decor:  According to Design*Sponge, “Midcentury” oftentimes connotes thoughtfully designed Modernist homes and furniture, but the fact of the matter is that there was a ton of really ugly stuff in the mid-twentieth century.”  So the first step in creating your Mid-Century Modern Dining Room is to pick out high quality items that are built to withstand the test of time, both in craftsmanship and style.  If you do a Google search or Pinterest search on Mid-Century Modern Dining Room style, a lot of what you will find is low quality, plastic furniture that will eventually go out of style (and is bad for the environment anyways).  Wood furniture with clean and crisp features makes the perfect base for your Mid-Century Modern dining room. Buffets and Sideboards are a staple of the Mid-Century Modern Dining Room, especially when crafted with clean lines and angles. Choose sleek, simplistic dining tables and geometric dining chairs for a subtly beautiful midcentury look.

2) Embrace Subtlety. You don’t need to transform your entire space into an exact replica of a Mid-Century Dining Room from the past. Just add touches of Mid-Century to your current design and slowly integrate them until you have the perfectly designed blend! A great way to do this is to pay attention to the Mid-Century Modern color palette and add splashes of these colors throughout the decor.  Here’s our interpretation of the typical color palette used for a Mid-Century Modern Dining Room:

3. Choose your wood Wisely. The wood you choose can effect the entire mood of your Mid-Century Modern Dining Room. Cherry wood furniture is a bit casual and can bring a sense of brightness to the room, while Walnut creates a refined, sleek space. Reflect on how you’d like your space to feel, and shop accordingly!

4. Take inspiration from around the web. We’ve created two Pinterest boards especially for Mid-Century Modern Furniture & Decor, we recommend browsing them and others to create a look that is perfect for you and your home!

Vermont has not failed to impress with it’s selection of craft beers, handcrafted furniture, or delicious local food and I expect Vermont’s cider to live up to that reputation of being the best!
