The Mid-Century Modern design style, which spans from the mid-1940s until the late 1960s, with its characteristic simplicity, clean lines, muted tones and functionality, has been the style du jour of the past decade.

However, we are now seeing influences of Postmodernism with its rounded, curved, graphic and tubular shapes coming into play which takes the minimalism of Mid-Century Modern and classes it up a bit.

Postmodernism hit the interior design scene in the 1970s and lasted till the 1990s. The core idea behind it was to break free from the mid-century modern design aesthetic. Postmodernism celebrated everything unconventional, flashy, complex and weird, and often prioritised form over function, which is pretty much the exact opposite of mid-century modern!

It’s a pretty well-known fact that style revivals are cyclical. Just as people grew tired of modernism in the late 70s, over the past couple of years people have been getting tired of mid-century modern and all-white Scandinavian. It still favors bold, sculptural shapes, but the colours are more muted, and the shapes are softer.

There is no need for you to rush out and buy the latest trend because beauty is always in, no matter what is trending but, if you can afford it, spoil yourself with a comfy-cozy luxurious chair for some design fun.

For this interior, we chose a beautiful, timeless art piece that so elegantly compliments the design aesthetic with its gentle curves and warm colours reflected from the setting sun.
