Mid Century Modern

Love it or loathe it, mid-century-modern is the buzz word of the moment! It's distinctive style has become an art movement while most of us weren't looking. From the highly popular 'Mid Century Modern' exhibition currently on at NGV Fed Square, to your local neighbourhood hard rubbish collection, MCM is everywhere.

Whilst owning a Featherstone original may be beyond many of us, we can all marvel at the exuberance of this period, it's optimism and spirit. Such is the popularity of this period of design, that people from all walks of life are clamouring to have their own piece of this very special movement.

Serious aficionados choose to live in MCM houses, drive MCM cars, and relax in MCM furniture, such is the magnetic appeal of this movement. Whilst that is perhaps beyond the reach of many of us, excellent examples of mid century design can still be found for a minimum of cost, if you know what to look for. Do some homework, research the designers, hone your style. These items are the antiques of the future. Happy collecting!
