60s Modern Furniture

Age Of Antique / April 21, 2017

Subtlety and thoughtful craftsmanship are much of what makes midcentury style timeless. When Eero Saarinen designed his modern classic, marble-topped table in 1956, he wanted to eliminate any extra parts, including extraneous table legs. Paired with molded plastic Eames chairs, the simple lines of the table still look fresh and modern in this slate gray contemporary kitchen. Design by Joel Snayd

Let There Be Light

Midcentury table lamps lend themselves well to any space featuring low-slung furniture, and they're easy to find at vintage stores. Look for curvy bases in bold hues, paired with tall, slim lampshades, like this Murano glass lamp designer Kenneth Brown used atop a vintage Knoll nightstand. Photo by Mayer Bowden Photography

An Affordable Focal Point

Flea markets are another great source for retro lighting. A brass helix-style chandelier purchased for $200 is the focal point in this midcentury-menswear mashup. Black, silver and gold pinstripe wallpaper covers the walls and lets the entryway's bargain chandelier stand out. Design by Brian Patrick Flynn

Find Retro Art

Add an unexpected element to your home with a vintage art piece. Look for graphic wall hangings using squares or circles, like this red, orange and brown piece. Or, find a vintage-inspired print on sites like Etsy.com.

Decorate With Vintage Accessories

Outfit your coffee table with '60s inspired accessories, like this gold chain-link bowl, blown glass accents or sculptural vases. Design by Emily Henderson

Try a Bar Cart

If you've ever watched an episode of Mad Men, you know cocktail culture was almost as important to the show (and the era) as Don Draper's hair gel. Embrace it by picking up your own bar cart and stocking it with vintage glassware, cocktail shakers and ornate decanters. Design by Emily Henderson

Mix Traditional and Modern

Midcentury style isn't an all-or-nothing proposition. This bachelor pad combines the clean lines of the tufted midcentury sofa and table lamps with more traditional elements, like the bronze-and-glass coffee table. Photo by Brian Patrick Flynn
