During the baby boom era in the late 40s and 50s, architects and designers experimented with new forms that focused on the flow of moving inside and outside. These structures also aimed to create more privacy for homeowners. One of the most prominent features of mid-century modern design furniture is that it is also designed to be multi-purpose and furniture pieces were not restricted to having a single function. Household accessories also consisted of simple designs and reflected the new era. Some examples of well-known designers during the period of mid-century modern design include Arne Jacobsen, Ray Eames, and Harry Bertoia.
The end of the 1960s resembled the end of the mid-century modern design style and the occurrence of new housing began to slow down, and new design tastes developed with the advances in new technology. More on Mid Century Retro..
