Mid-Century Modern Wall Sconce Ideas
It’s been said that the Mid-Century Modern concept came to light after being used by author Cara Greenberg’s 1984 book called Mid-Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s. The phrase was used to describe mid-20th century architecture and design.
Later “Mid-Century Modern” entered the mainstream vocabulary around 1953, and generally characterized the architecture, graphic and furniture design created and used around 1933 to 1965s. We've seen this mid-century modern décor trend many times on Pinterest and on our favorite influencers' feeds as this trend has made its comeback.
Mid-Century Modern was influenced by Bauhaus and American high-prairie style homes. In Mid-Century Modern, functionality comes first, and minimalistic simple design is more favorable. Using mixed materials to create an interest is also a common approach. You can see natural elements and colors such as wood-colored materials, metals and chrome come together. Clear glass and plexiglass materials are also highly used within this category.
For mid-century modern lighting fixtures, the overall vibe they add to a space is important. Their materials can be on the warmer side, for example brass and bronze work perfectly.
If you design your house with a mid-century modern decor approach, you might want to pair items with straight clean lines. The Samantha Wall Sconce adds a clean, minimal approach.

Imagine this wall sconce next to your favorite Mid-Century Modern chairs like the Barcelona Chair.
