Brooklyn-based furniture retailer says that mid-century styles are making a comeback.
Online PR News – 29-May-2012 – New York, NY – According to Alex Yankovskiy, owner of United Furniture Group (http://unitedfurnituregroup.com), a Brooklyn-based furniture retailer that sells brand name furniture at rock-bottom prices, both at its New York store and online, the home furnishing designs, colors and styles of the mid-20th century are not only alive and well, but have become a major home fashion trend.
“A current key trend in home decor is the style of the 1960s and 1970s, a period often referred to as mid-century,” Yankovskiy said. “Influences from that period include stylized floral and geometric patterns, cheerful and bright colors, clean and uncluttered Scandinavian designs, and lighter woods, as well as lighting, accessories and wall art from those decades.”
According to Yankovskiy, these elements work together to create a very relaxed style, which is evocative of that time period. He says that consumers will be noticing more tapered, thin furniture legs, ceramic-vase-shaped lamps with drum shades, geometric motifs; boomerang shapes and more “space age” designs.
“To start redecorating in a mid-century style, we recommend that consumers add new accessories, pillows, wall art, bed linens and one or two large pieces of furniture that incorporate retro styles,” Yankovskiy says. “They can augment these additions with additional vintage items from local thrift stores or flea markets.”
