1. Start With Sleek & Clean Lines

Our 2018 take on Mod Visionary is all about keeping to clean lines. You want to start with simple base of furniture and then layer a few sculptural accents on top.

We anchored this living room with a mid-century inspired sofa and armchair. Then we added the geometric rug, slim bookcase, and pile of pillows too give the space a mid-century pop!

2. Bring in Mid-Century Forms

Once you establish a clean foundation, your next step is to mix in some mid-century modern forms. Think tapered legs, geometric prints, and organic shapes.

Combine a modern sectional with pieces that sport some serious mid-century lines. This combo creates a room that’s balanced and modern, but doesn’t sacrifice comfort.

Modern spaces often get a bad rap as cold and uncomfortable. But mid-century modern designers were actually obsessed with making furniture that was affordable and functional.

Too keep our Modsy style true to these values, the Mod Visionary look is all about comfort. Swap a side chair for comfy upholstered armchair. Add function and style with a mid-century credenza. And add a woven pouf and a soft graphic rug to make the space warm and homey.

4. Make It Family Friendly

Our Modsy designs are more than pretty, they’re meant for real life. That’s why we curate special collections for our kid and pet friendly households.

An alternative to poufs, try a wouf for a stylish alternative that pets can enjoy. Replace the coffee table with a large round surface. And add a leather sofa that can stand up to some wear in high-traffic rooms.

5. Mix in Mod Accents

Small graphic elements are essential for rounding out modern spaces. The more visually impactful the better!

Layer in high-contrast art and an organic shaped lamp on top of a mid-century credenza. These pieces play up the modern look while keeping a minimalist edge.

You can’t go wrong with organic designs that add visual interest to your modern space.

Consider hanging a sculptural pendant or pulling in an organic shaped chair. Throw in some abstract pillows or a chunky jute rug to give your modern space a touch of texture and pattern.

Mid-century modern design favored organic and earth-toned colors. If you’re looking to stay true to the style’s origins, opt for a neutral palette of greens, browns, yellows, and neutrals. These colors pair well with warm and natural woods. Another favorite material among mid-century modern design.
