By the early 1950s, many European countries were looking to shrug off the austerity of wartime and begin looking towards a brighter future. In Britain and in many other countries such as Denmark and Sweden this manifested itself in an interesting approach to furniture design. The mid-century period is a fascinating time for interiors and it is at the centre of what we might now call “vintage”. A-mid century dining table perfectly showcases the simple but sophisticated look of this period. Browse our range today and you will find many pieces that are both elegant and versatile.
Why choose mid century dining tables?Mid century design is known for being both attractive and practical – a balance which is often difficult to achieve in interior design. Features such as gentle organic curves, clean lines and a wide range of different sleek materials make mid century one of the most desirable and instantly recognisable schools of design. Uncluttered lines, geometric forms, minimal ornamentation, contrasting materials and strong functionality are all key to mid-century design, and this is why mid-century dining tables make such fantastic additions to any home.
The dining table is in itself a statement piece. This is where everyone gathers for special occasions, dinner parties and family celebrations. It’s the hub of your dining area, and a strong, eye-catching design is necessary in order to do the space justice. That being said, a great design shouldn’t just look great but should also be durable enough to stand the test of time. With solid wood materials and minimal fuss, this is exactly what mid century design offers.
From large rectangular dining tables for special occasions to more intimate round designs with rustic flair, there are plenty of options to choose from. Brands such as G Plan and Ercol are particularly prominent within our listings, crafting dining tables in teak, rosewood and oak. Many of these tables also feature drop leaf elements and extending sections to make them all the more functional.
Introducing mid century dining tables into your homeMid-century dining tables offer you all the age and vintage patina of an older piece with the fabulously fashionable clean lines that are so on trend. Combine the minimalist look with sumptuous, aged wood, something modern yet retro all at the same time. There are so many woods to choose from, beech, elm, teak, rosewood and oak, the paler stripped woods looking so at home in a contemporary urban chic setting and the darker pieces suiting more traditional homes.
The classic round and rectangular tables in darker wood sit very well in a period setting, while lighter, rounder mid century designs fit seamlessly in a modern setting. Cleverly mixing the vintages to create a subtle, slightly mismatched yet coherent theme is one of interior design’s greatest joys, and mid century designs is the perfect place to start.
