The Mid Century design, also known as Mid Century Modern or the MCM style, emerged in the early 1930s due to the growing American movement at that time. It was a style influenced by Modernism, Art Deco, and Minimalism, creating a new design that emphasises functionality, simplicity, and elegance.
However, this style only had its golden age during the late 1940s to early 1950s, when everyone felt the post-war crisis. The masses and designers supported the Mid Century style precisely because of its advocacy to use materials conservatively while still creating stunning practical pieces. Hence, by the end of the 1960s, massive amounts of architectural projects, interior space layouts, and everyday commodities that followed its primary design elements were seen in America, Europe, and other war-torn countries.
Up to this day, the MCM style has never been out-of-style in the eyes of the public. Innovative, intriguing, and forward-looking masterpieces made from wood, metal, glass, and vinyl are coated in eye-catching tones of pastel and bold shades as representations of hope and blessings for the future. Many of the MCM products in the current market, including table lamps, embrace the essence of completeness, modesty, and multi-functionality to their designs, becoming one of the most popular styles from the past era.
Places Where Mid Century Table Lamps Shine
Table lamps with sleek, clean forms and elegant appeals always captivate the eyes of their onlookers no matter where you place them. Therefore, there is no need to worry about looking for a perfect place to put that Mid Century table lamp you bought on impulse. Freely put it anywhere in your house or office, and it will still make a desirable impact on your space’s atmosphere. If you need specific suggestions, we recommend a Mid Century table lamp to decorate on any of these places:
Bedroom: The bedroom is a house or hotel room that would never be complete without a table lamp. Place your Mid Century table lamp on your bedside table as a night or reading lamp, or put it on top of the low cabinet or dresser as accent lighting. Mid Century table lamps such as the Giana Square Satin Chrome Linen Table Lamp and the Octavie White Alabaster with White Shade Table Lamp go well with the relaxing and homey vibes in any personal space. Pair it with simple, clean, and bright furniture and decors, and you’ll have a lovely Mid Century styled room. Better yet, why not purchase two lamps to put on each side of your bed space for a symmetrical look?
Study Room: Refreshing and relaxing one’s mind after a whole day’s work or study session is crucial in maintaining concentration for the next day. One suitable method to rejuvenate yourself is to look at interesting and casual settings. You can redecorate one part of your office just for this purpose. Add a Mid Century table lamp such as the Cleo Geometric Bronze and Antique Brass Table Lamp to a corner of your desk space or place an artistic and interesting lamp like the Floating Moon Tricolour Modern Lamp on that table in your study area. In this way, you won’t need to go out to freshen your mind; all you need is to look away from your work, glance at your newly decorated area, and smile.
Kitchen: The kitchen area is one of the rooms with constant high foot traffic. Cooking, washing dishes, prepping ingredients - the hustle-and-bustle in the kitchen only slackens a handful of times in a day. Since it’s a place where many people enter, why not add a striking Mid Century table lamp to enhance the beauty of the space? The Yasmine Table Lamp, the Galleria Brass Navy Table Lamp, and the Porticello Raw Ceramic Table Lamp are some of our few recommendations that you can add to your kitchen counters for a livelier appeal.
Hallway: As another area in a residential or commercial place with tons of foot traffic, the hallways can become popular zones where you can put a Mid Century table lamp. That simple case on the corner of your passageway can turn from sham to glam if you put a Retro Mid Century table lamp like the Mildura Opal Glass Abstract Table Lamp on top of it. Suppose you have shelves for displaying trophies and other decorations. Why not add a ceramic table lamp such as Marie Ceramic Table Lamp to contrast colour and style.
Entryway: You already know you can put a Mid Century table lamp on your corridor, so why not place another one in your foyer? Something like the Marie Ring Brass White Table Lamp or the Erin Gold Two-level Glass Spheres Modern Table Lamp can be the first one to greet you as you step inside your home after a trip to the company or the mall. Moreover, you can let your lamp’s artistic and pragmatic attractiveness welcome your friends and family members as they visit you on Thanksgiving and other holidays. Who knows, perhaps it will potentially become a conversation starter on your dinner gatherings and reunion?
Reception Area: First impressions last, and the reception area is the key to making a suitable pleasing perception to visitors. No matter if it’s your home’s receiving or living area, your company’s lobby, or your hotel’s first-floor hall, it is vital to decorate this location appropriately as your guests’ initial perception about you, your family, or your business highly depends on its arrangement and style. One way to promote an aesthetically engaging and vibrant atmosphere is to place Mid Century table lamps in the area. For example, putting the Carrolton 5 White and Gold Retro Table Lamp on one side of your well-organised console table can imply your passion for cleanliness (and for charming pure white table lamps).
