I love a gorgeous pale turquoise; it's so quintessentially retro yet always feels fresh.
These ridged serving plates would look fantastic on a teak or glossy white sideboard. For a bolder look, I'd love to see the turquoise of these unusual plates pop against the glossy red of a sideboard or 1950s diner-style kitchen table, like the one I have.
What's not to love about a Norwegian-designed, orange patterned cooking pot? This one by Catherine Holm shouldn't be relegated to dark cupboards but kept on a work top for all to admire. I'd cook up a nostalgic meal for my friends and serve it directly from the pot for a homey, retro dining experience.
A quick and easy way to make your dining room table mid-century modern is to find a great tablecloth from the era.
This rare Tammis Keefe tablecloth is pure retro fun and begs for sorbet-colored settings and kitschy knickknacks like ceramic or resin napkin holders.
These 1960s Danish rosewood dining chairs feel more like the kind you'd find in an auditorium than a dining room, but that's part of the appeal. They appear simple in their structure from straight on, but a profile view reveals the mid-century modern surprise detail — the upper structure is bent so the chair back sits at a slight outward angle. It's a wooden chair designed for comfort!
If you can't have a mid-century modern home, you can at least have the artwork of one! Jim Ward Morris' original art prints are a visual treat for lovers of the colors and bold design of the era. I'd love to to use this print to create a mid-century modern hallway. It would hang on light turquoise walls with a Danish teak console table below and a pendant ceiling light above — that's all it would take.
