Mid-century modern (MCM) is an American design movement in interior, product, graphic design, architecture, and urban development that was popular from roughly 1945 to 1969 during the United States’ post–World War II period. The MCM design aesthetic is modern in style and construction, aligned with the Modernism movement of the period. It is typically characterized by clean, simple lines and honest use of materials, and it generally does not include decorative embellishments. A classic, understated look, and clean lines with minimal fuss; functionality; uncluttered and sleek lines with both organic and geometric forms; minimal ornamentation; an exploration of different traditional as well as non-traditional materials; the juxtaposition of different, and sometimes contrasting materials; neutral and bold colours; and bringing nature indoors are all distinguishing features of this style.
