One of my favorite parts about redecorating a space is when it’s time to choose a rug. In my opinion, nothing has the ability to pull a room together in the way that a good rug can.

They can make the space feel larger, warmer, friendlier, and many other different ways all depending on the style and goal you have in mind.

At this point, you may be wondering, what exactly is the mid-century modern style and where did it come from? Let’s discuss this!

What is the Mid Century Modern Style?

The name is pretty straightforward. This is the style that was booming during the 20th century. Many of the themes that go into it are simplicity, functionality, smooth linework, and abstract art. It does not have to have all of these qualities, but many are present in the pieces that fall under this genre.

It is said that this style was started during the post world war II environment. Many new ways of thinking were born during this time, and people wanted fresh starts and to grow away from the past. It also helped that during this period of time, mass production of products came into play as well as many technological advances.

So with these helpful tools, people want to create a more positive environment for the future.

Though today we are going to be focussing on rugs, this style had many more things under its category. Such as chairs, couches, tables, and other furniture. All of which have a modern spin that really can create such a magical living space.
