Why Mid-Century Furniture Works With Any Wedding

Haven’t decided on the final touches for your wedding furniture yet? It’s okay we got you covered!  Up the fun factor by incorporating some mid-century elements into your big she-bang.  Architectural Digest characterizes mid-century designs based on its organic influences, simple forms, and democratic detailing. Although it originates from early 1940's and remained popular throughout the late 60's, the timeless look is back and here to stay. Here’s why it works:

1. Clean Lines

Mid-century designs are often defined by its use of simple forms and emphasis on function. The “less is more” approach encourages its designer to gravitate towards items that are eye catching, yet practical and avoids the chances of having a cluttered space.  It’s use of minimalism blends well with other types of décor and is designed for everyone.  Overall, its timeless appeal will ensure that your wedding is always in style.

During this era, many of the pieces had strong organic influences.  But this didn’t stop designers from experimenting with materials such as plastic. We love a good eames chair!

2. Bold Color/Accent Pop

Often times in mid-century designs you will see various uses of geometric shapes and an expansive color palette. If you’d like to play it safe, olive green, mustard yellow, and flamingo pink are a good start.  Textile rugs and pillows are also exciting ways to add some color. Or expand your horizons with a vibrant 1960's side table.

3. Adds Personality

The beauty of choosing a mid-century design is the flexibility of it all.  You can use both traditional or non-traditional pieces and they can be incorporated with pieces from other eras as well. Be daring and experiment with statement pieces  ranging from lighting, candles, or plant holders. A lounge is a fun way to get personal and add personal touches by incorporating themes from both the bride and groom.  Are you a die hard Urban Outfitters fan? Use the things that inspire you at home and incorporate them into your event too.
