Interior Inspiration - MCM Lounge
Mid-century modern decor is synonymous with elegant chairs, statement lamps, and smooth tapered legs. The name, shortened to MCM, refers to the period from the 1930s to the 1960s, when minimalist functionality started to overtake ornate decorative interiors, using materials such as smooth polished wood and sleek metals.
The appreciation of good quality materials is evident in MCM settings whether you choose to accessorise with neutrals or with bolder colours such as olive green, mustards and burnt oranges and reds. The era was stripped back in style but enjoyed layering of natural materials (woods and leathers) and the man made ones (metal and glass). Scale up rather than down, for a clutter free look.
Used as an eclectic collection, your MCM home can pull antiques and new together; gather your vintage find chairs around a new table or display your heirloom glassware on a retro feel cabinet. Or stay true to the style, keeping all your woods dark, and fuss free.
