The best part about the resurgence of midcentury design is there are plenty of shoppable pieces available at most price points. Look for pieces that boast classic silhouettes, like tapered furniture legs and organic shapes (like in this mirror).
Symmetry is a key element in recreating the original spirit of midcentury modern décor. If you place one chair on the side of your foyer console table, be sure to place one on the other side as well. When it comes to the items on top of the console, try to create a balance with taller items on the outside and shorter items in the middle.
03. Create a Style Fusion
The beauty of any style resurgence is it presents the opportunity to personalize it, including fusing it with other design styles. We love how the clean lines and geometric shapes in this midcentury modern entrywaywork while combining elements of bohemian décor.
04. Light It Up
Since a dark entryway is anything but inviting, it would be a bright idea to add a fixture in your foyer that not only adds light, but goes with the midcentury theme you’re creating. A fixture that boasts geometric shapes, simple lines and a space-age feel, like this Sputnik-inspired one, feels unapologetically midcentury modern.
05. Elongate Your Entryway
Who doesn’t want an entryway that feels tall and airy? But if your foyer remains vertically challenged, a few design decisions can make all the difference in the look and and feel of your current space. Choose items that are taller and draw the eye up, like this oversized oval-shaped mirror and set of tall lamps.
06. Get Artsy With It
