Mid-Century Modern Furniture Obsession | Mother Maker Mess Blog

Admittedly, I didn’t realize the technical term for the aesthetic I love so much is called “mid-century modern” until only recently. I just always figured it could simply be labeled “awesome taste in furniture and home decor.” But there you have it, I am obsessed with mid-century modern design – I can’t get enough of it. Personally, I think the reason it’s such a big thing nowadays is because the children who grew up in living rooms decorated with these same sorts of furnishings are now old enough to decorate their own abodes in a manner that makes them happy. So of course they’re going to decorate in a manner that emulates a happy home in their minds. There’s some psychology for ya!

I am particularly obsessed with credenzas and side tables. Don’t ask me why – I couldn’t tell you. But obsessed I am! I stalk the free section of Craig’s List and the free listings on Facebook Marketplace to see if people are unloading their “ugly” old furniture. Whenever I see a credenza that also has a built in record player and stereo, I get stupid giddy. The only saving grace right now is there is zero room where I live currently for me to snag and store any of these amazing finds. So I pine away over other people’s trash, until one day I have a larger space and can hoard more stuff I don’t need. But I digress…

For your viewing enjoyment, here are some awesome mid-century modern-inspired (not legit vintage) finds I’ve run across on Amazon. Enjoy!
