Throw some shapes
You’ve decided on a mid-century modernism style for your home. You’ve completed your décor with some earthy tones, added some punchy patterns and have surreptitiously brought the outdoors, indoors. But maybe it’s still missing that wow factor.
To complete your look, consider some atomic shapes for extra retro-futurism. Adding some bold geometric accessories, like a retro wall clock gives an art deco vibe that is prominent in most mid-century décor.
If a starburst clock isn’t your thing, and you need to add some light – consider an atomic floor-standing, rocket lamp like the one seen here with The Fifty Three. Depending on your taste and how much space you have to play with, both can be considered a piece of art and focal point of the room.
The Fifty Three Leather sofa in Capri Olive from our Vintage range interprets that earthy accent look, and is complimented by our atomically patterned range of scatter cushions. Perfectly suited for any mid-century modernist’s home.
To make your decorative shapes really pop, incorporate a single-coloured shag rug. Your furniture and accessories will be bright, so sticking to beige or grey tones really helps to bring out the atomic accessories. This will help to make your futuristic shapes really stand out, because you don’t want to detract from their spotlight. The rug sits nicely under a nostalgia of mid-century modernism. And let’s be honest, there’s nothing like a good shag rug to bury your toes into.
