Creating the Look – Mid Century Modern

So far, we’ve created the look for a modern day farmhouse, a Scandinavian escape, and a coastal getaway. You might be asking yourself what we will do next. Well, if you are a fan of the simplicity of the Scandinavian look or favor the stylings of the Eames design team, then you’ll love what we are about to cover.

It’s called Mid Century Modern and chances are, you’ve seen this design style at some point in your life. Mid Century Modern is a hard to define. It stretches across a wide time span, specifically the late 1940s to the mid-1960s. Much like Scandinavian design, Mid Century Modern is all about sleek and uncluttered lines. There is very little ornamentation and a slight contrast of material and elements. Long story short, Mid Century Modern is a classic blend of 50s style with modern touches.

It’s a classy look for any room of your house but we think it really shines in the bathroom. A bold tile paired with a classic, natural wood finish and boom, you’ve got yourself a perfect Mid Century Modern combination. Here are some vanities that will help you achieve the look.


If Mid Century Modern is all about mixing contrasting materials then the Josie is the way to go. With its beautiful metal inlay and gorgeous metal legs, it is the ideal vanity. It’s not overstated in a bold or flashy way but it is appealing in its subtlety. Finished in classic French Walnut and Satin Brass and you have yourself a classic Mid Century Modern look.


The Vaughan is a great option for a Mid Century Modern vanity. Its shaker style doors mixed with its slightly tapered legs offer the perfect mix of organic and geometric forms. The finishes for the design is limited but there is still plenty to choose from. You can pick between beautiful stains that are only available on our transitional lines like Briar or Toffee. They bring out the richness of the wood that fits seamlessly into the Mid Century look.


Our Turino vanity is another perfect example of a Mid Century Modern design. This style leans a little more heavily on the modern side but it has all the necessary elements, mixed finishes and minimal lines thanks to the integrated finger pull. Combine our Cortado finish with White Acrylic and you are all set.


The Tempo vanity, especially when finished in Natural Walnut gives off big Mid Century vibes. Paired with this beautiful tile for Artistic Tile, you’ve got yourself a Mid Century Modern bath that delivers on all fronts.


As a wall mounted vanity, the Corrado puts the modern in Mid Century. Much like our Turino vanity, it works best in this design style when mixed finishes are involved like White Acrylic and Rosewood. Add an integrated finger pull option or even Touch To Open to keep the drawer faces clear of hardware, letting the vanity shine.

Verso Tall

The Verso Tall not only serves looks but it has tons of storage space. Finish this bad boy in one of our B wood finishes like Natural Walnut or French Walnut and pair it with our sleek Edge Pull hardware and you’ll have a perfectly modern Mid Century dream.


As with our Josie vanity, the Hailey has been specifically designed to fit the Mid Century Modern profile. It’s solid wood construction and inset legs are the definition of MCM. Add our metal inlay option and you’ll transform this beauty into one show stopping masterpiece.


The Zoe is our final Mid Century Modern design and it is one of our favorites. This new vanity features a metal integrated finger pull and hand welded leg details that perfectly tie in the mixed materials that MCM is known for. Finish this vanity in Black Oak and Polished Nickle for a bold and stylish look.

Mid Century Modern is a unique style that blends retro with material that are commonly found in designs today. Any vanity that you choose can easily be transformed into a perfect Mid Century Modern piece, it all depends on how you work it.
