Incorporating mid-century art in the home

The mid-century modern style is a timeless one. This classic look doesn’t date because it is based on fundamental design principles that have endured and will continue to do so. Functionality was a key focus in the mid-century modern design movement and this can be seen in art from the era as well as in iconic furniture designs from renowned manufacturers such as Charles and Ray Eames.

Other key distinguishing features within art from this period include architectural style, which typically used curved lines and modern materials in the construction process. Mid-century modern art complements furniture from the same era so well because the clean lines and compact size of these chairs, tables, sofas and more encourage space efficiency and allow room for well-chosen pieces of art, be they wall canvases, pottery or even vintage floor lamps.

Take a look at the range of mid-century art listed here at Vinterior to discover distinctive sculptural pieces that will add a pop of colour and a touch of distinctive retro style to your interiors.

Why choose mid century art?

Mid-century art is all about strong shapes and simplicity and will add a unique sense of style to any room. While a modernist retro style interior provides a great backdrop for carefully selected pieces from the same era, these vintage pieces of art can also be incorporated within more traditional homes to provide a contrasting element of modern design. Draw the attention of guests with the eccentric faces of Fornasetti style art, investing in a statement print for the walls of your bedroom, living room, home office or hallway. If wall art isn’t what you’re looking for, try a vintage piece of glass art to liven up a dresser, or a unique piece of retro style pottery for your shelves.

If you’re after something that is functional as well as decorative, we also offer an eclectic array of items such as mirrors, vases and lighting to make use of every day within your home. Each piece of mid century art listed on Vinterior is crafted from different materials, showcasing various design influences from the era.

Glass is often used within sculptural pieces as well as to create vases and containers, while ceramics have been used to craft items such as dishes, jugs and other multi-purpose decorative pieces. Mid-century art can be used to add a unique finish to any room, giving interiors a touch of personality and unique style.
