Mid Century Wardrobes

Filter By

With the mid-century interior revival in full swing, it’s clear that no part of the home can escape the trend for the sophisticated style championed by mid-century furniture designers for the post-war household. Simple, sleek and functional with the perfect retro look, mid-century furniture makes a refreshing change to the lure of mass-produced furniture as a way to create an own individual look within your home.

Why choose mid century wardrobes

The wardrobe is one of the defining pieces of furniture in a bedroom. Large and recognisable, it stands shoulder to shoulder with bed frames as being the most practical piece in a bedroom space. Although primarily a functional piece of furniture, it is also one of the focal points of a bedroom due to its size. And so, it is important that you make the most of this unit to bring character and charm to a space that is ultimately created for comfort.

The clean designs of mid-century wardrobes offer sophisticated simplicity and can provide functional storage without necessarily overpowering the overall theme of a room. From retro vintage to cosy Nordic, hygge to art deco – there is a piece of mid-century furniture for every style of interior design.

Vinterior always champions the unique and the beautiful tones of vintage wood and this is one of the defining features of many mid-century wardrobes. Mid-century furniture is the antithesis of the darker pieces of the early 20th century and were designed for a more light-touch approach to interior design craved by modern households.

Light, bright and spacious, teak is the wood of choice for many of the Danish mid-century designers who rose to popularity during this era of pared-back simplicity. Given this simple approach, mid-century wardrobes are perfect in smaller spaces and can work particularly well with complementary Art Deco styles to create a period home rich in shapes and colour.

Storage or Style?

Tallboys are an excellent option for individuals short on space but big on the need for storage with a number of styles. Double or triple style wardrobes are perfect for the indvidual blessed with extra space. These larger units often feature retro-style inbuilt curved mirrors – a look that is easily identifiable as a 1950s trend. Key designers of the century feature prominently, with pieces by famed British furniture designer G Plan and their unique take on mid-century style featuring on the Vinterior site.

Wardrobes aren’t just for the bedroom, however, and hall wardrobes and coat hooks can also be used to bring mid-century style to the entrance of your home. When fighting the uphill battle to hide the unwanted clutter of boots, shoes and umbrellas it may as well match the overal interior design theme of your home.
