Ethan Allen Design Tip: Decorating in the Mid-Century Modern Style

CT Style

If you’re looking for a clean, open feel in your home but don’t want an ultra modern look, try mid-century modern.

“Mid-century modern is a lighter, airier product, which is more craftsman-like,” explained Ethan Allen Design Consultant Mark Audley.

The “no-nonsense approach to design” originated in the 20s, but Audley says it really became popular from 1933 to 1965.

“Mid-century modern is an easy look to achieve,” Audley said. “You’re talking about less product. You’re talking about more important pieces, but try to keep it very airy, very, open. Let your furniture almost float.”
