Antiques — Mid-Century Could Be Your New Style
Anyone looking to change up their interior décor these days would do well to look back before going forward. Paging through a recent issue of Interior Design magazine, other than the high-tech stuff and brushed chrome kitchens, there are some photos and ads that look like those from an issue of fifty or sixty years ago.
In fashion and design, the period from the 1930s through the 1960s is known as Mid-Century style. From Art Deco to Do-wop, it’s been having a comeback lately, especially the post-war, celebratory “high-style” from 1945 to 1965.
Not since the Victorian Age had there been a time of such creative output and high consumption of goods. Now that we have had time to sift through it all, we are realizing just how perfectly it speaks to what we need in our lives today.
