Style Secret: Iconic FurnishingsMidcentury style is unique in that it's largely driven by innovative mass-produced furniture and accents. Perhaps no other period produced the same volume of household-name artists and designers as this era: George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen and dozens more. Their singular furnishings and accents drive and define the look, from Marshmallow sofas to sculptural Egg and Womb chairs. Make it yours: These prizes come at a price, but you can find knockoffs and reinterpretations that will give you the look, if not the pedigree. Or invest in one authentic signature piece to anchor the space, then layer it with others that complement the look but aren't necessarily true to the period.
