Mid-Century Modern

Within Modernism, the Mid-Century Modern period highlighted the usability of design in the Post-War period. The growth of suburbia spurred a need for accessible and comfortable furniture that blended seamlessly into the consumer's home. American designers referenced Scandinavian design’s adoption of clean lines, quality materials and functionality. Matching good design with American commercialism and industry, design firms Herman Miller and Knoll defined the generation's interest in interior living spaces.
