mid century modern 1950's & 1960's interiors

Well, as wikipedia says: Mid-century modern is a design term applied most frequently to residential (and some commercial) architecture, interior design and furniture. Related to the Space Age, the International style and Googie, mid-century modern translated the ideology of Modernism into a sleek, cool, yet accessible lifestyle. Mid-century modernism was more organic in form and less serious than the International Style. Scandinavian and Finnish designers and architects were very prolific at this time, with a style characterized by simplicity, democratic design and organic shapes. They had an influence on Mid-century modernism in the rest of the world, including the US. Mid-century modernism has become popular in recent times, and has influenced contemporary modern design profoundly.

or in more simpler terms: Mid Century Modern furniture and accessories that range in age from the 1940's through the 1970's and were designed with smooth lines and elegant curves

Some of the most well known designers of the mid-century modern era include: Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Arne Jacobsen, George Nelson, Paul McCobb, Hans Wegner, Isamu Noguchi, Finn Juhl, and Vladimir Kagan
