The 1950s and 60s are back in a big way; mid-century modern furniture is undeniably en vogue at the moment, and has been for several years now. It’s interesting to note the abundance of robin’s egg blue throughout today’s curation, which is illustrative of the color’s popularity in the genre. Perhaps the mid-60s release of the Audrey Hepburn classic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” had an influence over the style of the day, just as the introduction of electric modernity informed the clean, simplistic, almost under-stuffed lines and upholstery that stands the test of time more than five decades later. While many designers are paying homage to the period with updated interpretations of the style, for some enthusiasts, finding a true original is adventure enough.
