The mid-century modern aesthetic has seen a revival over the past few years, and it's not very hard to see why. This decor style, popularized between 1940 and 1960, is all about clean lines, minimalism, and a connection with nature. Mid-century modern furniture often works in nearly any setting and pairs well with other decor styles like contemporary and Scandinavian.
Whether you're an avid mid-century fan or you love mixing in pieces here and there, we've rounded up a handful of Instagram accounts to inspire your next makeover.
