Give Your Space at Rittenhouse Claridge a Mid-Century Modern Look With These Tips

October 30, 2015

Mid-century modern furniture — think clean lines, hairpin legs, and teak woods — is becoming quite popular again. If you'd like to get in on the trend, check out these tips on how to incorporate the style into your Rittenhouse Claridge home:

  1. Splurge when it comes to the wood. As good as it may look, you'll want to resist the urge to buy anything made with imitation wood. To achieve that true mid-century look, you should use as much real wood as you can. Oak, walnut, and teak woods are the most popular. If you don't have the funds to purchase all real-wood pieces, focus on a piece or two to start.
  2. Upgrade the lights. Go with a shiny bronze desk lamp or a dramatic arc floor lamp to brighten your space.
  3. Buy a new sofa. If you have the money, purchase a low-profile sofa with thin legs and clean lines. This piece will certainly make a statement in your living room.
  4. Display art. Add art with bold colors to bring even more character to your space.
