After the austerity of World War II, optimism, creativity and influences from Scandinavian modernism and American affluence collided to produce a new aesthetic in furniture and interior design. Bold but simpler lines, organic and molecular shapes, primary colours and new materials such as vinyl, aluminium, plywood, formica and gloss veneers transformed interiors.
Forty to fifty years later and the furniture of the 50ís and 60ís, often made from solid teak or rosewood, and with dovetailed drawers, has survived intact.
Itís clean sculptured shapes and lines are timeless, working well with both antique and contemporary pieces to create an eclectic mix for stimulating interiors. Mid-century is back... and looking better than ever.
