Mid-Century Furniture


Mid Century furniture (also called mid-century modern, retro or vintage) has been used to classify a wide range of furniture and with blurred age lines it can be difficult to identify. There are some tell tail signs on Mid century furniture such as its use of clean, curvy lines, the use of different materials, it’s a sway towards being cool and multifunctional that makes a true designer piece whether it be a Retro bedroom furniture or a Mid-century modern dining room furniture item, you do not need to stick to the bedroom and dining room for this look work. Try mid-century living room furniture or a Retro Style office.


There are plenty of retro pieces of furniture out there on the market, but the trick is being able to distinguish between a good quality piece that will stand the test of time and one that is not, hiding a multitude of sins or just being dam right ugly.
There are certain things that you can look out for when buying, such as minimal wear and tear to the items especially Danish Furniture and mid-century desks and sideboards, or one that has had a good restoration process that has used traditional techniques.  Look out for a named designer as this will add to its value. Make sure it has no splits or water damage and the joints are well constructed on the wood of mid-century chests and wardrobes.

Don’t be put off by a cheaper material being used on a hidden part of the item as this has been a practised method by many of the most desired designers over the decades. Surface scratches and chips are what to watch on plastic and vinyl pieces.
Keep to these main points and your new purchase can be a mid-century modern piece that can grow in value that could rival any antique family heirloom.

All of our items have been thouroly checked over restored and polished to showroom condition ready for your home.
Your Vintage look can be cool, stylish, sleek, and varied. Don’t be scared to mix your look up a little as there are lots of different pieces that can complement but not match, making your house a home not a museum. It can help to start with one larger item that you have fallen in love with and then work around it keeping vaguely to a theme but not rigidly. You want your home to show the cool, retro feel of the mid twentieth century not to reconstruct the 1950’s. We are part of The Modern Marketplace on Modern Shows
