SOHO sofa in Mid-century style by Arredo.
The characteristic features of Mid-century furniture are simplicity of form and functionality. The benefits of this design have been proven over decades of use in interiors. What is the reason for the relevance of this style today?
Mid-century Modern (MCM) style is a modern interpretation of the design of the middle of the last century, which, in turn, was formed under the influence of modernism of the 20-30s (Bauhaus, International Style, etc.). Today, when people talk about the Mid-century, they mean the continuity of the principles of interior design, architecture and urban planning in the United States of the post-war period (1945-1975). The famous American designer Christopher Kennedy summarizes the main principles of modern MCM in his book Making Midcentury Modern:
“The design of Midcentury Modern has an honesty and simplicity that makes it very attractive, especially now that our lives are scheduled by the minute and our world has become more complex. Midcentury Modern is all about simplicity in materials, avoiding unnecessary decorations, connection with the environment and a minimum of things around, except for those that matter. These qualities will always be in vogue. “
As for the furniture in the Mid-century style, then and now it is considered one of the most iconic in the world. It is characterized by natural materials and simplicity of forms.

If you are looking for a trendy interior, then one of the best ways to create one is to turn to the Mid-century style. The aesthetics have stood the test of time and will most likely still.
Sofa SHAKE PRISM
Mid-century furniture reflects the absolute minimalism of contemporary art. This design creates a stylish, functional space with no frills. Sofas of this style become elements of the contemporary art style of luxury apartments.

But not only the Mid-century makes the interiors of luxury apartments exquisite. Classics, fusion, loft and other styles work great to create contemporary spaces. In particular, the following composition from the Italian brand ANGELO CAPPELLINI, made in the spirit of the times of Philippe Orleans, proves this. Thanks to exquisite design skills, allusions to rococo in the execution of furniture and the balance of modern interior elements, we see a harmonious and very stylish space.
