In Shop the Look

It was popular back in the ‘50s, and it’s popular now. Featuring organic forms, minimal ornamentation and juxtaposing colours, the Mid-century modern look brings a certain sense of California in the 1950’s to modern day Singapore.

With that, here are 5 pieces for the ultimate mid-century paradise:

Geormani 3-Seater Leather Sofa ($2,599)

1. Geormani Sofa

It’s always the easiest to start off with the centrepiece of every living room: the sofa. Close your eyes while sitting on our Geormani Sofa – you might even hear the sea breeze if you listen hard enough. With classic and simple lines that the mid-century style has come to be known for and kiln-dried tropical wood pyramid legs, you can bet that this sofa will hold up for as long as the trend of mid-century furnishing will.

Of course, with every sofa comes a TV Unit and in our case, the Bowen TV Unit. Notice the beautiful curves and fluid forms and the sophisticated craftsmanship that requires skill in working with solid timber, because edges have to be perfectly shaped, sanded and curved to echo the softness of vintage mid-century designs. A TV Unit like this is sure to create a convivial ambience for the mid-century modern home.

3. Weiland Dining Table

Feast your eyes on no – not what’s on the dinner plates – but what’s under it. The Weiland Dining Table with its boat-shaped design and modern-looking looping legs, creates a medley of functional comfort and chic style. The look bridges the organic and the man-made, with one foot in the natural world and the other in brave new territory that still has the power to surprise us today – without excess detailing or unnecessary flourishes.

Complementing the Weiland Dining Table is the Weiland Sideboard. Supported by the same looping legs, its organic form is just as timeless as the mid-century style. Also, its contemporary patterns and natural materials allows the fluid form to blend in seamlessly to the rest of the dining room.

5.  Asolo bookcase

Another statement piece that’ll mix things up would be the Asolo bookcase. Available in 2-tier or 3-tier units, this piece is sure to draw the attention of anyone who steps into your home office. Put up that framed butterfly art you always had in that attic, stick in some Monstera leaves and there – mid-century perfection.
