4 Inspiring Mid-Century Modern Homes

Creations | 1008 views

While Mid-Century modern originally targeted the years 1945-1965 since Greenberg’s book was published some 30 years ago, the design period has often stretched to include the late 1960s and early-to-mid- 1970s.

After World War II, residential architecture was designed to be simple and built quickly: usually one-story tract homes that emphasized horizontal lines; lots of windows; an easy, open flow from room to room; and a smooth transition from indoors to outdoors. Furniture design reflected the clean, unfettered look of houses, with curves, polymorphic and geometric shapes replacing any busy or highly ornamental details.

In each project, the designers honored the spirit of the original plans and details. And we have full home tours of each, which you may link over to and explore via the numbered titles.
