What is midcentury modern:
We have enjoyed serving as a resource for collectors and decorators seeking art, modern design and vintage decor from the 50s-80s and look forward to getting to know our clients and building a relationship based on providing great service, open communication, trust, and shared sensibilities.
At its core, midcentury modern is all about strong shapes, clean lines, graphic arts and bright, and sometimes muted, pops of color. We specialize in curating treasures from the 1950s-1980s
It’s important to remember that less is more. Subtlety and thoughtful craftsmanship are much of what makes midcentury style timeless.
We want to help enthusiasts of midcentury modern design discover a few amazing pieces of art or objects that will be decorative focal points that will find a special place in their home.
If you’ve been hoping to bring some vintage vibes to your home, we offer everything from a mix of large midcentury modern canvases to lithographs from abstract expressionists
Before choosing contemporary artwork for your home, think about where you plan to place it. The layout and size of the room help you determine how big of a painting to display.
In a small room, a large painting can easily overwhelm other design elements. If the painting is too small, it loses its impact.
If you are looking for contemporary art to add to existing décor, choose paintings that work well with the color palette of the room.
When searching for art to redecorate a room, the colors in the painting can help provide inspiration for the rest of the décor.
If possible, keep your walls white – midcentury style is all about showcasing quality pieces, so try keeping your walls white allows artwork and accessories to stand out.
Keep in mind when you really love something, you shouldn’t wait too long to purchase it!
It’s fun to accessorize a midcentury modern room with an emphasis and pop of color from a glass vase or wooden sculpture
