Millennials Are Obsessed with Mid-Century Modern Interior Design, Here is Why!

The millennial term is frequently seen and heard in a lot of places from blogs to ordinary conversations. Millennials are those persons who born at a time of declining fertility and according to Oxford Living Dictionaries, they are described as “a person reaching young adulthood in the early 21st century”. These people who now have around 24 and 36 years old are the ones obsessed with mid-century style and its pieces such as the Florence Knoll sofa or the iconic Shell chair.

But why are they obsessed with this style? Perhaps due to the influence of the Mad Men Tv series along with the style of their grandparents’ houses. The truth is they are opting for including this style within their homes, offices, and even stores. However, they have created their own variation, mixing minimalist forms, eclectic pairings, and industrial overtones; this is what Alessandra Wood a Design and Ph.D. director said. 

So the reason millennials love this style so much is because of the minimalist principles they have and how versatile this style can be when it comes to accepting other influences and accents from a different style. Also, since most of these people usually live in the city, in apartments or small houses, it is necessary for the simplicity and functionality that the MCM has to offer.

Ophelia Bed: The Spirit of Your Modern Bedroom

If someone, spontaneously, asked you what are the keys to having a modern bedroom, which reflects the perfect balance between style and functionality, many ideas and many possible suggestions would probably arise in your mind. Nevertheless, don’t forget that, on many occasions, the presence of a piece like the Ophelia bed can make an ultimate difference in the visual effect that a modern bedroom can produce.

The power of a platform bed frame should never be underestimated, especially if it’s a model in which the details are what make a remarkable difference compared to other designs.

Always remember that a wood bed frame can look radically different from other models, only thanks to its finishes, colors, and the materials it incorporates.

Like the rest of the pieces within its category, a modern bed frame is focused mainly on functionality and practicality over aesthetics. That’s a characteristic that you’ll find not only in any other mid-century bed frame but also in the vast majority of the designs that have become iconic within this trend.

Taking into account all these statements, you can already imagine why the spirit of your room is really the bed you choose and the details that make it up will represent the decisive element that gives your bedroom a truly modern spirit.

A Leather Sofa is much more than Brown, Black or White

Nowadays, color sofas are rising in popularity. While grey appear to be still the most popular color, some colors and models, especially rounded, are increasing its sales. Most of the people tend to assume that only fabric sofas have that characteristic, but the reality is that leather sofas have lots of hues for you to enjoy them, too.

Leather colored sofas: A basic palette.

Leather sofas have a more stable palette of colors. Single basic tones and several groups have everything you need for an elegant living:

Gray. In 2020, Grey was again the most popular option among all types of sofas: fabric or leather. People love it because it allows you to play with different color options on your walls and other furniture. Popular tones for leather in gray: Charcoal Gray, Slate Gray, Light Grey


Brown series. The most popular choice in leather sofas. Brown goes well in almost any ambient and allows the leather to show its inner virtues. Popular tones in brown: Dark Brown, Warm Brown, Saddle Brown, Walnut, Chocolate.


Black. Always a classic, black is more oriented now to the corporative spaces and design enthusiasts.


White Series. A sophisticated choice goes well in contemporary livings. Popular tones in white: Cream, Vanilla. You can enjoy a very elegant Barcelona Sofa in pristine white.

Beige. Always popular with Scandi, or Coastal Living Styles. Popular tones in Beige: Caramel, Sand
