Mid Century Modern Style Coffee Tables You’ll Love

Posted by Watson's on Sep 29, 2022 11:03:26 AM

Coffee tables are an essential piece of furniture that can tie together your whole room aesthetic. A multifunctional piece, the coffee table can be used for decor, storage, a footrest, a table, and an artistic addition to your room.

Mid-century and mid-century modern coffee tables have become a popular choice for consumers for their simple and sleek yet bold styles, the types of wood and materials used, and unique functionality. While some designs use a singular material, like wood, many styles of mid-century modern use a mix of materials including wood, metal, and glass. 

How to Style Your Coffee Table Decor

 

What’s The Difference Between Mid-Century And Mid-Century Modern?

While they may seem like similar technologies in furniture design, there is actually a difference. Both styles were designed with function and form as leading priorities, but mid-century modern took the basics of the more practical-minded mid-century movement from the 1930’s and enhanced with more materials and an easier price point after WWII.

One distinct similarity for both is that mid-century and mid-century modern furniture is built to last. Not only are these coffee tables timeless in their design, often made with solid wood, tapering legs, and recognizable flair, but they are also well-built to provide excellent support for years and years, making them a great choice when selecting a coffee table.
