The world has fallen in love with what we call “Mid-Century” decor and by the looks of it, this trend will last longer than we may expect. In this post, we take a deep dive into the trend and talk about the top mid-century floor lamps that you should have in your home.

Let’s Take it Back in Time

Before we delve deeper, let’s understand what “mid-century modern” actually means.

The Mid-Century Modern concept started after World War II and the Industrial Revolution era. Ever since then, this style has continued to play a significant role in design across products, furniture, graphic design, interiors, and architecture. Originally this design movement started in America, influenced by the International and Bauhaus styles that had emerged in Germany. As many influential Bauhaus architects and designers moved to settle in America during this period, they also carried their modernistic approach to design with them.

With the post-war scenario demanding expansion of cities and quickly built homes, modern furnishings grew in abundance. Bulky designs were being swapped for simpler alternatives and open floor plans. With a wide combination of materials, textures, and colors, this style turned out to be the optimal blend of the past and the future.

However, it was not until 1984 that the term “Mid-Century Modern” gained popularity after author Cara Greenberg titled it for her book, Midcentury Modern: Furniture of the 1950s.

The Mid-Century Modern Style

The Mid-Century decor style is being hugely welcomed by many homeowners today. This style is based on many distinctive characteristics. It’s modern, simple, functional, non-messy, and has nature-inspired elements. With an exciting scope for exploration of materials and colors, this style has made a huge comeback and promises to stick around in eras to come.
