Falling for Mid Century Design

There’s no doubt that the TV show Mad Men has influenced and shaped trends in home décor over the past few years like no other TV show has done before (at least in my lifetime!)

Mid Century Modern (or MCM for short) design has taken the design world by storm. MCM design is top of mind for many of us who are trying to design our dream spaces. From trendy retro inspired appliances for the kitchen to bold patterned textiles, the look is hot, hot, hot!

MCM design is showcased in high style on the TV show Mad Men and there’s something so appealing about the look. Why I think the style has such appeal in 2015 is because the clean lines of the designs work so well paired with modern and rustic styles alike… making it easy to add to the pieces we’ve collected over the past decade as they’ve come into vogue.

As a buyer, it’s a lot of fun shopping this style and once the styles finally hit store floors, seeing it mixed and matched with other furniture styles. This fall season, stop by your favorite Urban Barn store and see if you can spot these MCM styles, both classic and new.
