3 Ways to Style Our New Mid-Century Lilikoi Sofa & Chair

Throughout the year we are constantly on the hunt for new pieces of furniture to add to our collection.  Recently, we picked-up two new lilikoi yellow mid-century modern pieces and we’re so in love.  Yellow just so happens to be one of our favorite colors and the great thing about this particular shade is that it works with just about any design.  Since we’ve gotten it, we’ve been dreaming up so many new ways of how it could be used.  And if you’re a Pinterest enthusiast like we are, then you’ll understand the fun of daydreaming through all the inspiration that you come across.  We’re so excited and didn’t want to keep these great designs all to ourselves—keep reading to learn more about how to add some color to your style with our newest pieces!

 
 

1. Mid-Century Everything
Architectural Digest characterizes mid-century designs based on it’s organic influences, simple forms, and democratic detailing. The style often works because of its clean lines and it’s bold use of colors and accents. If you want to learn more about the style, feel free to check out our previous blog post here.

2. Jungalow Style
Like mid-century designs, jungalow style also features a various uses of bright colors.  In addition to this, the Decorist also refers to its incorporation of patterns, plants, and global accents. Though the concept may seem a bit intimidating with the boldness of every color and pattern, it’s all about taking the time to find just the right pieces!

3. Fresh & Modern
Not to be confused with mid-century modern designs, modern styles perfectly achieve a minimalist design with more neutral colors.  Though its lines are clean and crisp, its use of asymmetrical pieces add some personality to the entire look. In its visual graphic laying out the characteristics of a modern look, the Fresh Home suggests that modern designs are great for smaller spaces as it amplifies the illusion of having more space.
