Not to miss house tour for mid-century modern fans

I am a big fan of mid-century modern furnishings and interiors, except when it's done in a cutesy, trendy way. I think this home is a beautiful example of mid-century modern as the furniture is restored or reupholstered with contemporary fabrics, and integrated into the home amongst contemporary accessories - lamps, artwork, textiles, etc.

Fabulous table and chairs - and what do you think of the lamp being on the table?

The chair is mid-century modern but the upholstery is now, keeping it from being cutesy.



Another great set of table and chairs. I love this room, it looks like such a peaceful place to have breakfast.

In the top left corner of this picture you'll notice a photo overlay and in the scene you can see this console. It still looks great arranged with salon-style artwork and a modern rug.




What do you think?

Gorgeous home! I too have a long standing love for Mid-Century Modern. Love how they placed the lamp on the stack of books. Unfortunately that would go sprawling everywhere at my house, with three kids.

Great space! I am such a fan of mid-century but like to not only mix trends of the era, but also mix in retro pieces with newer furnishing and textiles. Great photos - very inspiring!
