Mid-Century Modern Home Style


Based around simplicity and smooth cohesion between nature and its surroundings, Mid-Century Modern architecture was one of the most popular styles for post-war homes in the United States. Characterized by flat planes, large glass windows and open floor plans, these homes featured simplicity and an integration with nature, encouraging residents to explore the world in new ways. Made famous by architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Mid-Century Modern design continues to have a cult-like following by those who are drawn to the minimalist aesthetic, sustainable building materials, and the extensive use of glass and natural lighting.
