Sleek lines and geometric shapes are hallmarks of the mid-century movement. Furniture from this era is characterized by clean, straight lines which play up the natural beauty of the design. Pieces that are stripped down to a simple form often speak louder than those with excess detailing. Simplistic kitchen chairs or cabinets with wood detailing in the living room are perfect ways to play up this modern design theme in your home.

Mid-century modern design showcases quality pieces of furniture or accessories rather than decor on the walls. White or neutral color palettes are typical on the walls, but your space comes to life with accessories, bright colors, various patterns and textures.
Opt for lamps with curved bases paired with narrow lampshades, accent pillows that tout bright orange and geometric shapes, or retro art to add mid-century modern personality throughout the home.
Mid-century modern forms the foundation for the newest Brizo bath collection which leverages a number of influences including a 1950s airliner and automobile tail fins, making it a perfect staple for starting an interior design bathroom transformation.
"It's obvious the inspiration for the Sotria collection stems from the sleek, streamlined aesthetic of an airplane, but it's about something bigger than that, too," says Celine Garland, industrial designer for Brizo products. "The collection was inspired by the optimism of mid-century America. We took the spirit of the 1950s and reimagined it in a way that's both a nod to the past and a celebration of the present."
