Elements of Mid-Century Modern

If there is a style dominating the home and interior design world, it is Mid-Century Modern. You can spot its influences everywhere from furniture to home décor.
Mid-Century Modern’s minimalist and contemporary qualities are exceptionally inspiring for kitchen design.

Wood Accents

Walnut, Teak and Rosewood are species commonly used and are often finished in a natural, clear coat. Fitting to the style, our new brown stains gives wood a rich, premium tone, and are a refreshing change from painted white cabinetry.

Mixed Materials & Colors

The ability to mix interesting elements also gives Mid-Century Modern its charm and popularity. Some style combinations typically feature:

  • Metals– such as polished brass or chrome.
  • Malleable decor– like plastics, fiberglass or plywood.
  • Colors– earthy and subdued, but can incorporate vibrant hues as well.

Sherwin William’s “Colors Through the Decades” highlights a few paint colors influenced from Mid-Century Modern. Any of these can be sampled through Crystal’s Color Per Sample Process.
