when chairish asked me long ago to do a mid-century room design, the timing was off and my schedule wouldn't allow for it. this time around, i obliged. the task at hand entailed mixing up mid-century modern with any style and i knew this would be a fun and creative endeavor. most of the furnishings i chose, and more great mid-century pieces can be found here. since this style of furniture features clean lines it is easy to incorporate any of these furnishings into your space.
the start of this office design began with the colorful, and very electric, mid-century modern splash oil painting; this anchored the entire room. from there, i searched through many pages of furniture on the chairish site and this almond lacquered paul frankl mid-century modern desk captured my attention. i really love the clean lines, brass hardware, and neutral color to help balance out the bold art, graphic vase, and printed pillows. this design i liken to a symphony of styles, color, textures and contrast. the two pillows, one in wool and the other in green silk, offer up great visual appeal while having very different lines in the pattern.
this italian mid-century modern floor lamp from 1955, made of bronze and iron, provides sleek lines much like the desk while also contrasting the rounded lines of the industrial chair. the pod chairs...well...those are just too cool! they add another texture and more neutrality in contrast to the explosive and bold art and pair so well with the brass c jere style octagonal table. so there you have it, my symphony in design. xx, dana
