Timeless with a twist.

It feels like we’re in the midst of mid-century modern sensory overload. Seemingly everywhere we look, leggy furniture and tulip tables reign supreme. Despite the timeless, versatile silhouettes, we’ll admit that we were ready to (temporarily!) set it aside. Then in came Article’s fall collection, proving that when it’s done right, MCM is anything but boring. 

The line, which officially launched on September 9, is full of instant classics. Sturdy walnut bedroom furniture with elegant spindle headboards and even attached nightstands will outlive all your color palette switch-ups. If you have a particularly tiny living room, you can’t go wrong with the armless love seat. (Psst, if your apartment is both square foot challenged and in a walk-up building, take advantage of Article’s in-room assembly.)

Article furniture skews mid-century modern to begin with, but the fall collection is broken down into three subgroups: Wabi Home (lighter, less structured pieces), Modern Organic (natural materials), and Mod Glam (vibrant colors and luxe fabrics). These subtle twists—think: channel tufting on a sofa or a sculptural chandelier made of bamboo—are what make the aesthetic feel fresh again.
