Mid-Century Style Furniture

American Furniture, Handmade Furniture, Mid-Century

The mid-century modern style movement is one of the most recognizable in American history.  Characterized by its simplicity and unique use of materials from wood to plastic.  Sometimes referred to as "retro" or "mod", we prefer the term "classic" -- mid-century furniture pieces are every bit as relevant today as they were when the movement originated in the late 40s.  While some say the roots of mid-century design sprung from Frank Lloyd Wright or the Arts & Crafts movement, many believe that the movement was actually an American reinvention of Bauhaus and International design that was happening around the same time.  There are many famous names to whom credit for the basics of mid-century style can be attributed, names that are recognized even outside of architecture and design circles, like Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson.

Today at Homespun Design we are proud to offer new mid-century style designs from several of our makers, including ARTLESS, Eastvold Furniture, Goebel & Company and Jeremiah Collection.  These pieces are all unique, contemporary designs that pay homage to mid-century style and minimalism.  Here are a few of our favorites, but there are many more to browse in our Mid-Century Furniture Collection, so please take a look there too!
