  Mid Century Modern is defined by the creative, original style of furniture and architecture so popular in the 50's 60's and 70's. Much of the furniture was designed in the 1920's by greats like Marcel Breuer and  Mies van der Rohe. Designers like Charles and Ray Eames and Aero Saarinen designed in the 50's. What follows are some examples of this ever popular interior design style.

Another iconic symbol of the 50's is this the Womb chair designed  by Aero Saarinen. This one in gray is very restful. By  Knoll
