The end table in this Midcentury Modern Living Room is an accent piece that has a gold finish on it that gives the living room a touch of glam. Atop this end table, is a live plant and a white sculpted lamp with a tan satin lamp shade that adds an extra element to this accent piece.
A streamlined midcentury-modern dining table sits in front of a transitional eat-in kitchen. The kitchen features a wood-grain wall of cabinetry, complete with fridge-concealing panels, that both complements and contrasts the blue island and cabinets.
In this space, a large, glass-topped table with seating for six creates a functional dining space for the family and their guests. To keep the eclectic feel alive in the space, designers chose a table whose base is part of a tree trunk to give the design a bit of additional personality.
A couple of coats of a high-quality gold spray paint makes an affordable table ready for a party. “Our bar area is clean and simple with plenty of personality,” says Atlantan Amanda Macy Hall, who blogs about home decor and DIY projects. “We keep an edited mix of liquors and a fresh selection of add-ins, such as herbs grown in our garden, lemons and limes.” She tucked chic faux fur stools--an IKEA hack--underneath for additional seating.
This Midcentury Modern dining room features a custom, 130-inch glass top dining table that is supported by three acrylic and brass bases and seats twelve in black, mohair dining chairs. On the ceiling, designers installed a set of suspended chrome and glass balls that are used as a modern light fixture and complement the silver metallic cork wallpaper that offers rich texture to the open dining room.
A tone-on-tone neutral color palette sets the stage in this midcentury modern living room featured on HGTV Design Star. A tan sectional and pale wood tables are accented by a navy area rug. The low-slung furniture with clean lines and tapered legs are quintessential midcentury modern pieces.
Sometimes, the architecture of your home is the best guide for the style of the furnishings you fill it with; other times, its surroundings will direct you. When choosing furniture for this living room, designer Kristen Rivoli took the latter tack. “This space is in a building right next to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), in New York City, so our inspiration was the classic midcentury modern furniture you might find at the museum,” she says. “We found the side table at a vintage furniture store, but the sofa is new—it’s available through KRID but it has the lines of a classic tuxedo-style sofa. The Brittania light fixture is also new but adds to the midcentury style, and the toss pillows are custom-made in a mellow color palette typical of the ‘50s and ‘60s.”
