MID CENTURY MODERN
Mid Century architecture began its popularity in the United States after WWII with a look towards the future and away from the past. It stretched thru the mid 1970s. After many years, Mid Century architecture has made a big resurgence, quickly becoming one of the most popular design styles in America.
Mid Century Modern gave us the open floor plan; large open living room/dining room spaces followed by the open concept kitchen.
Mid Century is also most recognizable for large windows, large sliding doors and floor to ceiling walls of glass that allow for the integration of nature with the interior.
Flat roof lines, linear cabinetry and flat planes throughout the space are a key design feature of Mid Century Modern. In the kitchen, this is most notable in the lack of added details such as crown molding, island turnings or decorative cabinet doors and hardware. Simple, clean lines are key.
Finally, Mid Century offers a great mix of industrial metals with natural wood. No white painted cabinetry in this kitchen.
