The Art of the Mid-Century Modern Home

The years just before and after WWII brought home buyers looking for new and creative ways to design their living spaces. This created a movement of homes designed specifically for the timeless tastes and functionality for families of the 1940s through the 1970s, namely mid-century modern. This architecture used modern materials such as reinforced concrete, glass and steel and the mid-century modern designs themselves were a direct result of post-war optimism and showcased the nation's eye toward building a new future.
