Each year, we see more and more in different areas of our lives the term “Mid Century Modern” but what does it actually mean? The term “mid century modern” is quite difficult to define but if we would try to put it in simpler words and give a short answer, it describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century.
Some of the original mid century modern furniture pieces can reach quite a high price. For example, in December 1999, a George Nelson Marshmallow sofa sold for an unprecedented $66,000. A year later, two George Nelson “pretzel” armchairs sold for just over $2,500 a piece, while a 1965 George Nakashima cabinet sold for $20,700.
But no worries, if you would like to have a mid century modern furniture piece in your home, you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars. Many manufacturers created a mid modern collection or special edition inspired by mid modern century style.
