I've been re-watching Mad Men recently, which is likely why I'm drawn to all-things midcentury these days. It also helps that there seems to be an interest yet again in the trend. If you think the space-age motif isn't for you (those Sputnik chandeliers can get a little too out of this world at times), you can always embrace the free-spirited side of midcentury, where you'll discover teak, rattan, and hippie-inspired patterns.
It's a big deal if you move into a home that has an original midcentury fireplace. They always tend to look a bit like something out of Star Trek, but there's also something about them that screams Scandinavian hygge. This complete fireplace set from the '60s is destined for a modern cabin nestled in the mountains.
Yeah, you could go to IKEA and buy another light fixture (and you really can't go wrong when it's less than $50), or you can buy the vintage version, like this Danish ball-shaped pendant light.
A desk really can be a conversation piece, and this midcentury wonder is guaranteed to spark a lot of conversations.
You can buy one or two of these charming midcentury chairs from France — they're fully restored, and that baby-blue hue is amazing.
Midcentury pieces can be a tad on the expensive side (the majority of midcentury finds are highly collectible), but every once in a while, you can snag an object that won't break the bank, such as this adorable bud vase for under $15.
Lovingly restored, this upholstered stool has pointed legs that instantly say "midcentury," and the fabric is delightfully contemporary.
Go beyond basic light fixtures and push things in a groovier direction with a midcentury tripod floor lamp.
