Detailed Guide & Inspiration For Designing A Mid-Century Modern Living Room

Design enthusiasts praise the mid-century modern style – but what is it, exactly? Coined by author Cara Greenberg in her 1984 collection, mid-century modern refers to pieces from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s which pushed the limits of engineering. Desperate for creativity after World War II, famed designers took war materials and molded them into iconic chairs, tables, and lights – goods still sought after and replicated – furniture whose design was never bettered. Follow our detailed guide and links on how to incorporate mid-century modern pieces – and the style’s philosophy of good living – into your own inspired living room full of 50’s wonder.

Make mid-century modern look effortless. Fit your lounge with the high, wooden windows typical of the style, using a tilter to afford fresh air. By using wooden-legged furniture, here a peach accent chair, nested coffee tables and long three-seater, your interior can offer difference without one piece dominating. Light a swing arm wall lamp like this, beside a Bell table lamp by Tom Dixon to pair matching metallics. Sprigs of poppies could add focus behind your couch, as ferns pop up in planters across your living room. By matching a leather floor pouf to your wooden joinery, you can provide a place to read books surrounding the TV.

Designer: Orlando Soria  

Imagine mid-century modern away on holiday. Use shades of white, turquoise and gold beside an artificial Areca palm to create an everyday getaway. Stretch a Jute rug beneath your couches to add a dash more colour, and tie metallic end tables, each featuring three rounds of glass, into hues for leaf-patterned pillows. Prism coffee tables can further catch the eye with triangular legging, as a large arc floor lamp bends over the scene. Light up a wall of windows with the day’s incoming sun, finishing with turquoise tunes in a tufted floor pillow, couch cushions and table ornaments.

As day sets, settle for something warmer. Heat up a more masculine scene with a ceiling-held fireplace beside a white Wegner-style shell chair. Sit a wood and metal coffee table on a Jute rug to centre the space. Two Wegner Papa Bear-style chairs can cuddle up beside a monochrome ottoman, while a couch in the same hue can offer more snuggling. Polish off your interior with grass views through glass panes.

Visualizer: Aleksandr Kalinov  

Grey and light wood are classic mid-century modern hues. Keep warmth in your living room with wooden walls on either side, while grey hues in your floor, seating and Jackson Pollock painting (here the number 14 in Gray) keep it spacious. Use the style’s ceiling-height windows to bring in light, and an Axis floor lamp to bring a focused glow to seating. With the Axis’ golden base harking to the seat and square coffee table’s legs, it’s easy to add glitz to this relaxed scene.

Designer: Jessica Helgerson  

Think outside the square when designing inside. House trees in hand-blown glass, a table in spotted driftwood and a Jute rug in natural weave. Insert wooden-frame lounge chairs and floors to make it more modern, and two spiralling wall ornaments to match their tone. Ceramics in jade and lots of white – here shown in the lounges, walls and chaise longue – create breathing space for your outdoorsy interior.

Create the look with different materials and textures. To design an eclectic, yet not overpowering, living room, coat your seating brown in leather Barcelona-style chairs, mid-century modern classic chairs, and a blue metal accent chair in the Platner style. Join together a marble coffee table, metallic standing lamp and tulip-style end tables to create a lounge that looks ever so put-together.

Mid-century modern was originally created for smaller spaces. Use a brown leather sofa like the room above, but create your own vibe with a lightbulb pendant and dreamscape surfing photography. Let geometrics linger in a pentagon-legged coffee table and grey patterned rug. A range of potted plants, most notably here the Boston fern, can sit with your objects and photos to tie the look in.

Designer: AB Curated  

Looking a little larger, this living room uses brown as an accent for notable pieces. To achieve this look, sit a demure mid-century sofa upon a varnished floor in the hue. Face two chairs in the style towards the couch for conversation, letting a sofa cushion, framed print and turntable box match them in colour. By using classic mid-century modern pieces, here a geometric-legged coffee table and standing swing lamp, you can add nature in potted ferns and an artificial ZZ plant. Lie a red Turkish rug upon your floor to suggest travel and avoiding jarring colours.

Designer: Desiron Lizon  

The mid-century look can look super-modern – although its pieces have never changed. Make like this sloped-roof living room and use a couple of masterpieces, such as the Verner Panton S-style chair and cheeky Ray Eames elephant. Other interesting finds, like the tortoise with the elephant, or red shell couch to the back, can add character. Build ceiling-height windows and rows of long wooden bookshelving to cement your interior’s mid-century modern influence.

Metallics are not just for the 21st Century. Employ them as feature pieces, by hanging a convex wall round and sitting a large copper floor lamp on your floor. Add hints of blue in a Myers sofa and rug to match patterned wallpaper, lending the blue to more knitted poufs. Finish with a few florals in a vase full of snapdragons, printed cushion and leaning stamen painting.

Photographer: Wells Campbell  

Create an entertaining area the 50’s greats would’ve been proud of. If decorating for a large, high-windowed space, scale up its walls with widely-spaced wooden panels, a series of white pendants and a large abstract artwork. Cover the floors and fireplace with red brick, keeping it warm with a large faux fur rug. Create a space for a chaise longue, Tom Dixon Wingback and school chairs, letting a rounded coffee table meet another in a triangle. Complete the look with a wistful baby grand and standing lamp for company.

Don’t be scared to have colour at your centre. Draw in the eye with a psychedelic piece beside a relaxed leather sofa set and geometric marble coffee table. Use light wood to softly cover your chair legs, shelving and wood stack, a potted tree to add nature.

Visualizer: Bruno Helbling  

Keep it classic in black, white and brown. Signal an eclectic style with dotted framed abstracts, abstracts like these or these. Employ a range of seating styles to populate your area, such as the Arne Jacobsen-style Egg chair, and a golden floor lamp to match your coffee table. Woollen textures can get cosy in fluffy ottomans, rugs, throws and cushions, whilst plants, such as the natural or artificial Fiddle Leaf Fig, can be presented for show.

Designer: Balodemas Architecture  

Baby boomers will remember this decor of their parent’s style. Get nostalgic with a white and wooden frame, centred by a blue wall featuring a bookcase. Place two white sofas beside many smaller windows, and two tripod plant stands to bring the outside in. Draw in guests with a mid-century modern coffee table holding a Russel Wright pitcher full of roses, adding a geometric console in the 50’s style. A bookcase can stand as your final relic, full of vases and picture frames below a George Nelson-style ball clock spreading out its rays.

Designer: Deering Design Studio  

Get cosy with 50’s-style colouring. Relax your orange and grey room in three types of seating amidst mid-century style table lamps, available here and here. Hang two rectangular framed prints mirroring the shape of the windows. Design your furniture in light wood to keep it cohesive.

Designer: Christian Dean  

Grey and orange couldn’t look more different in this open plan rendition. Break colour dominance in your living room with two berry chairs and the Noguchi table by Herman Miller, now available as an original or replica. Match its shine with a Flos Arco-style lamp gleaming silver in the corner, adding a hint of life with wooden plant stands. We recommend a simple grey rug and shelved ornaments to finish.

Designer: Cynthia Prizant  

Heavily influenced by 30’s painter Mondrian, this living room uses mostly geometric shapes, shapes that Mondrian believed were of a higher nature. Open your living room to a bold feature wall almost copied from his pieces, falling to a triangular-patterned rug and chairs in block colouring. Allow breathing space by decorating with simple windows, white walls and a wooden table, console and floor.

Lucky enough to be surrounded by windows? Clothe your interior in charcoal, like this unique space. Showcase a ceiling-high feature fireplace amongst wooden accent chairs, adding small pops of colour in couch cushions, magazines, and two pieces of abstract art.

Visualizer: Int2 Architecture  

After more muted hues? Colour your furniture in teal and taupe, bordered by white walls and patterned floors. Matching wooden legs and a stone bookcase provide a good background for an Orient pendant looping over your wall.

Make your living room warmer, with a floor and half-wall in the polished wood of the style. Wrap a stone-coloured L-sofa around your windows, complementing the look with a white lined rug. Play with iconic pieces such as a Platner-style coffee table, black Swan-style chair and Serge Mouille floor lamp peeping over your sofa. Offer a spot by the fire with an Eames-style walnut stool. Splash turquoise about in hued watercolours and cushions.

Designer: Risa Boyer  

Keep it warm yet light with wood and orange tones. Carve a wooden roof with rafters over a stark white floor, diffusing your bright orange wall with a rug in brown checkers. Opt for an Eames lounge chair, available as an original or replica, to tie your TV and orange hues together. A suite in taupe could look out to a Noguchi table, whose Herman Miller original and now-available replica are iconic of this style. Complete the look with a fireplace, cushions and vases.

Photographer: Federico Cedrone  

Make the most of a beautiful outdoor view, with a few mid-century modern pieces. Wind a cream L-sofa beside a unique end table, here the iconic Platner side table, whose oscillating bands reflect the midday sun. Adding a lower side table, ball lamp and classic fluffy rug can make this look last a lifetime.

Decorate your living room a la Mad Men. Make the most of your high windows with a marble centre, brown leather seating and unique ceiling fans shown here. Pepper your lounge with standing lamps and an olive green armchair, for a perfect place to relax and watch the show.

Source: LA Times  

Design like the Eames’ – using their own Pacific Palisades living room as inspiration. Take cues from their contemporary Mondrian, and build double-height windows and high wooden bookcases with his rectangular forms. Nest amidst a bevy of indoor plants, using the Eames’ chair designs and iconic bird, available as an Eames Bird replica. Fill vases with flowers, lean a ladder to the ceiling and add hanging paper lanterns to complete your homage.

Photographer: Ezra Stoller  

Designed by architect Eero Saarinen for the industrialist J. Irwin Miller, this also-famous home was the beginning of a once-burgeoning trend – the conversation pit. Get inspired by Spanish and Middle Eastern influences, and construct a pink-couched depression in the middle of your floor, offering a space for focused chat. Scatter differently-coloured cushions to complement an iron table, figure and pot. A few roses in and out of the pit can also pretty up the scene.

Visualizer: Tero  

Centre your mid-century modern living room around a rug. Take a bright-coloured Cubic rug and set it upon a wooden floor, inviting companionship with black chairs in the style. Accent the look with a marble standing fireplace and retro-style floor lamp.

Designer: Disc Interiors  

White and wood mixes with grey and blue in this mid-century modern interior. Light its décor with a fireplace illuminating pockets of wood holding ornaments and frames. Starburst wall décor can act as your headline piece, while a shaggy rug, gold-rimmed table and geometric cushions create your home’s rested guests.

Visualizer: Valkyrie Studio  

Looking for more modern adaptations of the mid-century modern style? These last three interiors should yield inspiration. This particular look, blessed with the décor’s high windows, can be achieved using more muted shades of wood to cover your floors and walls. Replace the style’s characteristic floor lamps with LEDs lighting each wall. Place a rug in the centre, and stand a plethora of chair styles in more recent materials. A low marble table can act as your room’s pivot point.

Visualizer: Hodidu  

Use the classic mid-woods of the mid-century modern style, but throw distressed floorboards and charcoal into the mix. Go for the classic look with wooden window joinery, a Wegner-style Shell, mid-century style console and voluptuous bookshelf. Make it more modern with framed prints, not paintings; a rug that’s neat, not shaggy; and a central couch and ottoman that match a modern pendant.

Designer: YamaMar  

Make mid-century modern work with a sunny veranda. Employ the starburst wall décor and laden bookshelves of old, adding a lime couch and black-painted floorboards. Add a central fireplace and rug to show evolution of the style. A Noguchi-style coffee table and faux sheepskin pillows can further twist the classics.

Functional Minimalist Home With Brave Colours And Bespoke Installations

The design for this 107 sq m home in Moscow, Russia, was visualised by Design Rocks with functional minimalism in mind. Keeping only what was deemed to be useful, or brought joy to the homeowners. The minimalist home is not devoid of design though, neither does it reside under a blanket of plain white on every wall, floor, ceiling or furniture upholstery. This place has a selection of simplistic room designs with a punch. Star features are the strong and gutsy colour choices, cherished plants, large artwork and interesting bespoke installations such as a clear fronted closet and the unusual layout of a welcoming square entryway with a central focal point.

A large chaise sofa has a gently mauve tint that adds a little warmth to the minimalistic scheme, as does a careful selection of soft pink accents seen here as pink pots for healthy indoor plants and on a useful coffee table tray. The coffee table itself is a low profile design with a base shelf beneath the top, which allows for a small selection of current reading material to be stored temporarily.

The marble base and black cutaway of the fireplace runs the entire length of the living room, from an exposed flame at one end to a comfortable modern accent chair at the other.

Above the fireplace, a flatscreen TV has been recessed into the wall to keep things smooth and uncluttered.

The chimney breast above the open flames is tiled in pale marble.

Although the room dimensions are quite narrow and encompasses large items of furniture, the minimal aesthetic presents the room as spacious, open and airy.

Sliding glass doors open onto another uplifting plant display back in the home entryway.

A large but simplistic example of contemporary art is propped against the wall by the sofa. This is lit by two neat matching floor lamps that have a small footprint, and are adjustable in height. The lamps double up in use whilst located in this position; they are able to be utilised as either picture lights or as reading lamps when someone is relaxing on the chaise of the sofa.

The light kitchen cabinets are arranged in a wrap around L-shape, with the upper cabinets selected in a subtly contrasting wood tone. A small selection of canisters storing dried foods and frequently used cooking oils make a useful display.

Situated in the kitchen, a round dining table is encircled by four modern dining chairs. Above the table is an interesting trio of black dining pendants. These shades would throw linear patterns over the plain surrounding walls when lit.

The backsplash and kitchen countertop are black, matching the dining chairs and pendant light shades.

Waist height wooden panelling has been mounted along the hallway and into the kitchen diner to break up the blank white wall. This adds a little visual warmth as well as avoiding the usual bumps and scuffs that accumulate on the lower half of painted walls in high traffic rooms and walk-throughs.

In the home office we are met by an intensely green scheme. If you pay heed to colour study, the colour green is said to evoke feelings of being energised, so this could prove useful in a work or study situation.

Double workspaces are becoming more and more common in the home due to an increasing amount of people working remotely, or just having to bring excess workload home with them. The two desk chairs and monitors in this home tell us this is the situation here. Luckily the built-in desk is long enough to comfortably sit two at a pleasant window location. A file shelf is wall mounted at the side of one of the workstations, while a table lamp sits at the other.

There is also a sofa in the home office that could double as an extra bed if needed.

In the master bedroom the bed is snuggled into a recess beneath a selection of wall cupboards. Two bedside table lamps light the wood covered recess, creating a cosy glow around the sleep space.

The bedside cabinets are low to dip beneath the base of the leather platform bed, these stand in place of legs at the head of the bed.

Beneath the bed a large area rug warms the space underfoot.

A low level console holds nothing on its surface but a large dressing mirror and two succulent planters.

The minimal capsule wardrobe can be viewed through glass doors, which keep the garments free from dust. LED strip lighting illuminate the collection in a boutique fashion.

Simple window treatments give the bedroom privacy whilst keeping the room scheme looking like a place of simple relaxation.

One of the homes bathrooms has an extremely dark scheme, a cocoon of deep mocha.

A light wall mounted vanity unit and white ceramic sanitaryware are the only bright elements in the room.

A second bathroom is the polar opposite. The colour scheme in here is heavenly bright and glowing. Beige wall tiles are bathed in light from LED strip lights around the perimeter of the ceiling. The centre of the mirror is lit by more LEDs, in an elliptical design.

The home entryway is a welcoming square shaped layout where a unique planter has been installed as a type of room divider, causing footfall to flow around it when accessing the various rooms of the home.

The floor to ceiling planter design is lit from within and flanked by two handy bench seats.

Dark Grey Home Decor With Warm LED Lighting

After a hectic day of being out and about in the big bad world, it’s nice to have a cosy nest in which to hide away and snuggle up. Cosiness can be achieved through home decor in many different ways. Warming decor colours, sumptuous textures and luxurious furniture are just a few of them. Here, we have two shining examples of how warm LED lighting can make a dark grey home decor scheme appear welcoming and warm. The mood lighting gives each of the interiors a feeling of safe seclusion and warm hazy harmony. Crisp modern features and furniture give a simple minimalist vibe, adding to the feeling of uninterrupted relaxation.

Visualizer: Z.Design architecture  

The first warm ambient apartment tour begins in an open plan living room, where a lounge and kitchen-diner space is combined. A selection of recessed spotlights are situated around the perimeter of the open room but its the under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen that really sets the lighting scene. Sandwiched beneath a row of wall cabinets and above the kitchen countertop, the glow from the concealed strip of LEDs creates a large letterbox of light.

A contemporary dining table light beams puddles of illumination over the eating surface, from an arrangement of long thin aluminium tubes.

The minimalist kitchen has a cool dish-draining feature that is set back from the kitchen counter, existing as a separate entity that runs the entire length of the work area. Numerous dish and food draining options are situated along a frame, allowing the countertop to stay dry and free from water stains.

LED lighting makes solid grey walls and kitchen units appear warm and glowing.

Beyond the dining room and into the lounge, a little natural daylight diffuses through window blinds onto a tall indoor plant.

Glazed walls surround a walk-in closet that doubles as a laundry room, thanks to a conveniently situated clothes washer and separate dryer.

Each hanging rail is lit from above by an LED strip.

The golden illumination makes the clothing garments look as though they are hanging inside an exclusive boutique. The stripes of bright light are practical as well as attractive too, as they allow clothing to be seen clearly for quick and easy selection.

The transparent lightbox closet flanks a hallway, where a long uplighter subtly blends in with the length of the wall.

In the bathroom we find the mirror above a vanity unit is backlit, emitting warm illumination from above and below the glass.

Recessed spotlights light the rest of the grey and white space.

Behind a screen lies a wet room area complete with a Japanese style soaking bath and a separate shower zone.

Soft pools of light make this a relaxing space.

A kids room adds a little fun Lego texture over grey decor.

Orange has been added into the mix to make the palette more kid friendly. Two chunky knit bean bags in orange and white make a great place to read, hang out or game beneath a small
floor reading lamp.

Shared kids’ rooms often present a problem when it comes to deciding a layout for beds that doesn’t entirely eat up precious play and study space. In this layout, a cool bespoke bunk bed design has been built right into the end of the room. It incorporates a seat, kids’ night lights and more zesty orange.

Bedroom pendant lights don’t have to be large flashy designs. This subtle design quietly does its job over the bedside whilst incorporating an interesting wire feature up one wall.

Visualizer: Igor Sirotov  

Our second dark grey home interior is warmly lit in the lounge area by a minimalist floor lamp.

White flatware sings out on a dark table arrangement.

Above the television the ceiling border drops golden light over the feature wall.

The generous dining area is illuminated by a chic black dining pendant light with a shallow profile.

A small amount of natural light weaves through voiles at a heavily curtained window.

The grey kitchen has a textured effect.

At the end of the dining room a glass fronted storage cupboard has been lit invitingly from within.

The home entryway holds a huge backlit mirror and a side lit staircase, giving the hallway a nightclub vibe.

The hard marble stair treads reflect the light, giving them a wet look.

The golden perimeter of the bedroom shines like the first beam of sunshine on a horizon…

…or the last stripe of sunlight at night.

A unique floor lamp lights the bedside.

In the bathroom a circular mirror is lit like an eclipse.

The whole of the small bathroom is decorated in dark grey, including the floor, the vanity unit and an anthracite vertical radiator.

The children’s room clears the grey air with a much lighter and brighter look. The walls are still grey, but this time in a softer pale putty hue. Many elements of furniture and accessories have been selected in a solid white colourway to lift the scheme, including a novelty rack, desk chair and a swing arm wall lamp.

The stylish ergonomic chair is pushed up to a desk that fits perfectly into a window recess.

A small sofa provides a comfortable place to sit with friends.

We find another stylish ergonomic chair at a study area in a second kid’s room, along with two bean bags creating a chill out space.

This time we find purple and blue-green accent colours in a woven circular rug.

The kids bed is tucked away from the play area.

Like cracking open a treasure chest, shimmering golden light spills out over this bathroom.

Bold monochrome tiling dominates the scheme.

Open Plan Home Decor With Interesting Layers

Open plan home layouts can appear boxy and lacking in structural design features, so how can visual interest be added? In this home tour, created by designer Guan Pin from Asia, we take a walk through an apartment decked out in a palette of white, grey and woodtone decor. Different areas of the home have been defined with the dependable tricks of using furniture at right angles and laying down area rugs; it’s around the perimeter of these pieces where we find added features that work to break up what would otherwise be an expansive flat wall or a run of repetitive windows, features which keep the eye moving.

Beginning in the lounge area, we can instantly see that although the amount of furniture in the contemporary room is quite minimal, there is still plenty going on. The sofa design itself has its very own layering, with an integrated side table. A tall floor lamp with a large drum shade overhangs the modular sofa, bringing elegant height and structure. A richly stained wooden coffee table takes centre stage against a pale grey area rug.

An entire wall of regimented windows have been given a very unique treatment. Panels of grey window blinds float at random heights and depths, where each one is set in a different position to its neighbour. The effect is an architectural look that provides a level of privacy and light control.

Opposite the run of windows, a wide-spaced slatted wall has been constructed to partially screen the kitchen from the living room. The slatted design is echoed by a wooden end table over by the sofa, and more subtly by the ridged surface of a large charcoal coloured planter.

Varying materials have been selected for the furniture in the lounge. The pale grey softly upholstered sofa has been teamed with a pair of simple wooden Scandinavian style chairs, which are of a different hue to the wooden coffee table. The varying tones help prevent the scheme from falling flat.

To the side of the living room, a home study area has been created with a wooden desk that has a single chair at either side. A matching wooden tray acts as a spot for keeping refreshments within arms reach. Above the desk, a trio of white pendant shades elevate the area.

A selection of house plants have been dotted around the place to add a flash of colour and life.

Beyond the partial slatted wall, the kitchen also holds a dining area, defined by copper dining room pendant lights arranged on one fixture.

The dining set has levels, with a low profile bench placed at one side of the table and four chairs arranged at the other.

The slatted wall plays with light and shadow over the kitchen-dining room. Gloss fronted grey cabinets and glossy white fridge-freezer reflect the vertical linear pattern.

Wooden and copper interior elements add a large amount of visual warmth to a cool neutral decor scheme.

Behind the eating area, the kitchen is a collection of grey and white volumes arranged at differing heights.

The view from the dining chairs is another selection of contrasting storage units. Cutting through the centre of the end units is a large built-in fishtank. The illuminated aquarium landscaping matches with the greenery of the house plants.

The dining table is flanked with a white kitchen island.

The boundaries of where the kitchen begins and ends are blurred due to multitude of storage units that cover every solid wall of this home, in an array of finishes. Only the central island is clearly defined, with a generously sized modern fruit bowl.

Concrete slabs cover the walls of the entryway, giving it a weighty industrial ambiance in contrast to the airy white walls within.

Behind the home office, a large metal framed shelving unit holds a multitude of wooden shelves and cupboards.

The shelves are peppered with a collection of decorative vases, ornaments, pictures and house plants.

The lower cabinets hide away all of the paperwork so that the home interior is comprised of carefully considered layering rather than being carelessly cluttered.

Placing low hanging desk lighting in front of the tall chunky shelving unit creates great depth at this end of the open plan room.

The large display unit overhangs the window but the open ended design allows daylight to filter through unobstructed.

Built-in storage space is backed with charcoal grey paint, which makes it appear deeper than its actual proportions, and helps the lighter coloured cabinet construction materials to crisply stand out.

Textured wooden flooring runs throughout the entire space.

In the master bedroom, a deep divan bed has a floor lamp at its side, situated as a reading light. Wooden panels run the full width of the headboard wall, creating a feature on the plain wall.

Display cubbies are integrated into the bedroom closets.

A second bedroom holds an unusual platform bed design that extends beyond the end of the mattress, almost like a stage. Beneath the platform there is a selection of hidden storage. A bedside unit is also integrated onto the ‘stage’, as a buffer between the bed and the window. A separate bedside stool holds the bedside table lamp.

In this room there is also a layering of monochrome pattern, in the artwork, the decorative scatter cushions and the bed runner.
