In the 1940s and '50s. midcentury-modern design. with its clean lines. warm woods. and bold upholstery hues (often in woolly. menswear-inspired textures). changed the way homes looked. Suddenly. less was more. and decorating a home was about finding a design where form served function—a philosophy that continues to inspire designers to this day.
In a Beverly Hills house devised by architecture firm Marmol Radziner with interior design by Boehm Design Assoc.. the great room is furnished with midcentury-modern staples like Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chairs and ottoman by Knoll.The living room in a glass-walled penthouse of a New York City duplex renovated by Steven Harris Architects and decorated by Rees Roberts + Partners features a vintage Milo Baughman chair in the foreground.
If a mid century living room what you are after. green can play a key factor.The lime green accent wall in this design is beautifully offset with dark leather accent chairs. a large ottoman. and brown beamed ceilings. One of the pieces we absolutely love in this room is the mid century modern coffee table called the Noguchi table. designed by sculptor Isamu Noguchi.
Combining green and white is a great way to obtain a fresh and energizing design aesthetic. The unusual combo of the dark moss green walls and coral accent couch make this room a contemporary haven. The pink modern sofa not only adds visual interest to this room. but it also ensures that the red accent pillows and rug don't give a dreaded Christmas feel.
