For many renters and homeowners, living in a mass-produced world makes us feel drawn to custom-made, vintage-inspired designs. Enter: Midcentury modern, a style made popular in the '50s and a trend that is clearly sticking around. Defined by clean lines, organic influences, and functional design, midcentury modern tends to mix contrasting materials — like wood, glass, and metal — which makes it super easy to add into your home.

And, no matter your budget, there's a MCM resource for you: For authentic high-design pieces, look for manufacturers that still create based on the original design, like Knoll and Herman Miller. If you're looking for MCM-inspired pieces that won't break the bank, there are endless retailers to check out. Either way, it's never been easier to score the ​Mad Men​-esque look thanks to so many sites dedicated to crafting original and contemporary renditions of midcentury furniture and decor. Here are 16 online destinations to help you infuse your space with midcentury vibes.

1. Knoll

One of the most influential manufacturers of midcentury modern design, Knoll is about as authentic as it gets. And since you're getting the original design and make, this means you'll also be paying a pretty penny (as opposed to those brands who create MCM-inspired pieces). However, the price tag is worth it once you see the quality and unique design of each and every piece, from lounge chairs to dining tables to living room accessories. If you're looking for authentic and eye-catching pieces, look no further.

Another authentic design firm, Herman Miller was founded in Michigan in 1940 and helped create what we now know as American Modernism. Items aren't exactly cheap, however, the quality is on par with Knoll and a ton of items in its arsenal have become cult favorites among the MCM elite, specifically its line of office chairs and cubicle desks (which will look very familiar to you if you've ever worked in an office). But the brand is also filled with midcentury modern furniture and home decor, including Eames wall hooks, Nelson clocks, Noguchi tables, and more.
