In the mid-twentieth century, the design world changed forever.
Fueled by advancements in mass production and innovative new materials (think plastics and molded plywood), designers began to radically experiment with shape, color and function to create some of the most iconic designs we now know today. At Lumens, you will find a great selection of mid century modern and retro themed lighting, lamps, ceiling fans and furniture.
Why We Love Mid Century Modern Designs
Iconic mid-century designers like George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames and Arne Jacobsen incorporated intense colors, organic silhouettes, seductive curves and bold geometric shapes in their pieces, which continue to remain highly sought after by mid-century enthusiasts.
And even today, lighting designers continue to include many mid-century elements, both funky and highly ingenious. Jonathan Adler lighting consistently and playfully references the era in its design work for Robert Abbey, while Portugal-based DelightFULL has a fun and flashy line of mid-century modern lighting that looks like it was pulled directly out of a 1962 home.
Other Great Options
Try adding an iconic Eames lounge chair from Herman Miller to complete your mid-century modern designed home. Designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956, this lounge chair is one of the most significant and enduring designs of the 20th century. Gus furniture also has a great assortment of mid-century modern sofas, sectionals and chairs to choose from. And if it is a fan you need, The Modern Fan Company has you covered with multiple ceiling designs that fit the theme.
