Midcentury Modern's Influence in Furniture Design

Despite its popularity, Midcentury Modern design has its roots in functionality. Many Midcentury Modern designs were born out of a need to create more efficient living spaces given the post-war housing shortage.

Later on, Midcentury Modern design would come to be associated with the Atomic Age and all things space-age. It's now considered a classic style, but somehow it still lives up to the "modern" in its name.

If you're hungry to explore some of the most classic designs, we recommend getting into the designer duo Charles and Ray Eames, and architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The Eameses believed that good design should be accessible to everyone, and their furniture is known for its simplicity and functionality. You've probably seen the famous Eames chair.

Frank Lloyd Wright was a big proponent of Midcentury Modern design, highly influential, and his homes are some of the most iconic examples of the style.

WOODEN SOUL's Midcentury Modern collection takes the best of Midcentury Modern design -- the clean lines, the organic materials -- and combines those designs with artisan solid wood and meticulous craftwork. And because we're all about sustainability here at WOODEN SOUL, many of our Midcentury Modern pieces are made from reclaimed or recycled wood, too. All of this comes together to create a unique look that honors the tradition of midcentury modern, but with a wooden twist.
