Creating a Mid-Century Look on a Budget

If you love the look of mid-century modern design, it might be easier than you think to achieve it in your own home. It doesn’t have to be difficult—or expensive—to give any room of your home the mid-century modern vibe you adore. With these ideas for affordable mid-century-style furniture and décor, you can transform your space into something stylish and inspired.

When choosing the perfect furniture for this look, keep in mind the tenants of mid-century modern design. Select pieces that are functional and sleek, aim for an uncluttered look with minimal ornamentation, and add visual interest by pairing different materials and textures. Mid-century style is often characterized by the use of organic and geometric forms, a range of colors and a high-contrast aesthetic.

Now, let’s get to it!

Living Room

If it’s the living area you want to update, there are plenty of ways to add mid-century modern style to your family room. To start, make your sofa a statement piece with options like the Roxbury Black Sofa or the dual-purpose Skyler Sofa Bed. With mid-century qualities and chic upholstery, these sofas are the perfect balance of retro, contemporary and affordable.

Add a pop of color to your mid-century living room with an accent chair in a hue like bright turquoise—we like the Trelis Blue Accent Chair and the Tyler Accent Chair, both of which offer impeccable retro style at a great value.

Finally, finish your space with a coffee table and end table(s). When shopping for a living room table to complete your space, look for mid-century-inspired elements such as slim, angled legs; sleek, geometric forms; and retro, 1950s trends. The sleek simplicity of our Parker Cocktail Table would pair beautifully with your other retro-modern furniture and décor.

This Metal End Table combines galvanized metal with wood, and features hairpin-style legs for a mid-century look, while the Large Tray End Table adds a unique and geometric finish.

Dining Room

If you like the convenience of a complete dining set, get the mid-century vibe with our affordable Fullerton 5 Pc. Dinette or the Marissa 5 Pc. Red Dinette. For a customized yet affordable dining area, pair a sleek table like the Anastasia Dining Table or Sutherson Dining Table by Scott Living with two types of mismatched chairs.

Consider choosing neutral chairs and adding two more colorful chairs on either end of the table for a look that’s undeniably mid-century modern. For example, the Chelsea Side Chair pairs well with the vivid, retro tone of this Dash Persimmon Dining Chair. The beige tones of our Emerson 2 Pc. Dining Chair provides a warm contrast to the mid-century-inspired Cora Teal Chair in striking blue-green faux leather—plus, they offer unbeatable value.

Bedroom

Finally, let’s check out some stylish bedroom furniture that will help you achieve a mid-century modern aesthetic without breaking the bank. Give your room a retro yet contemporary update with a striking bed set like the Reegan 7 Pc. Queen Bedroom—it features a contrasting two-tone design, elongated hardware, built-in drawers in the bed frame and the classic retro tapered leg design. You can’t get more mid-century than that! Likewise, the Torrey 7 Pc. Queen Bedroom Set offers mid-century modern elements with a touch of sophistication, mixing multiple materials and textures to give your space plenty of style.

To add a pop of color to your mid-century-inspired bedroom design, a geometric area rug is the perfect solution. Inexpensive options like the Linon Trio Ceramic Gray Area Rug, the Orange Dash Rug by Scott Living or our Linon Roma Herringbone Gray Rug are all excellent ways to bring unique patterns and retro colors to your new mid-century bedroom décor.
