Every House CAN be a Mid-Century Home

Homeowners always tell me ‘I love that piece, I wish it would work in my house’


I am here to tell them that IT CAN. Let Thomas Norris Restorations show you how…


Combining Mid-Century Furniture at Home

I have yet to find a period of property which cannot accept the odd mid-century piece of furniture or fully accept a mid-century style.


I personally have had Ercol furniture in an Edwardian terrace, a modern flat, my current 1930’s home, my parent’s 300 year old thatched long house, our studio (a converted calving barn) and my grandmother’s stark white bungalow.


Shape – Whatever style your house is look for coving etc. Try to mirror these shapes in your mid-century furniture, be it the more edgy angular pieces or the smoother curves. A bay window is the perfect place for a statement chair or an occasional table.


Function – Many period properties benefit from spaces that modern properties lack, such as dining rooms, embrace them! There is nothing like a statement sideboard to make a mid-century statement


Style – Mid-century pieces tend to be mid-tone so blend well with other styles, so if you’re not brave enough to fully embrace the theme add a pop of mid-century colour and pattern to more muted tones.

MCM Furniture in a variety of period settings.
