FAQ

What makes a Mid-Century Modern rug?

A Mid-Century Modern rug embodies the principles of the iconic design era: simplicity, clean lines, geometric patterns, and a fusion of organic and linear forms. Often featuring a balanced mix of bold and muted colours, these rugs capture the essence of the timeless 1950s and 60s aesthetic, complementing furniture with tapered legs and minimalist silhouettes.

What colours are associated with Mid-Century Modern?

Mid-Century Modern design is associated with a distinctive colour palette that includes both muted tones and vibrant hues. Key colours often include soft yellow, olive green, orange, burgundy and various shades of blue. Additionally, neutrals like brown, beige and off-white often serve as foundational colours. Brighter, saturated colours are used as accent tones, reminiscent of the era's optimism and design-forward perspective. 

What style pairs well with Mid-Century Modern?

Mid-Century Modern design is highly versatile. Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavian and Contemporary styles all prioritise functionality, clean lines and organic forms. The simplicity and warmth of Scandinavian design — often characterised by minimalism and the use of natural materials — complements the sleek, geometric elements of Mid-Century Modern.
