To help, we focused on the essentials for the living room and bedroom, and discovered a surprising profusion of mid-century modern styles. Check out our favorite finds below, and let us know what you want to see more of!
Perched on slim, tapered legs, this design sports a Mondrian-esque glass tray top in a retro color palette, adding just enough interest and functionality (no need to worry about accidentally leaving water rings) when seen from above, while maintaining a classic shape and walnut-brown wood tone that would partner seamlessly with a variety of sofa styles.
This surfboard-inspired mid-century modern classic is an ideal shape for long sofas, narrow and rectangular rooms, or both. The rounded corners ensure the eye flows smoothly around the room (in addition to making it safer for shins everywhere), while the low height keeps it visually unobtrusive.
For a round coffee table option, we’re digging this petite blend comprised of a mid-century modern base and contemporary white marble top. It would pair well with vintage furnishings, while also adding a pop of youthful freshness.
Styled after the classic Eames design, this low-slung seat embodies the rare combination of being at once a sculpturally beautiful form, and comfortable to sit in. Its stature makes it a great option for a diminutive living space in need of extra seating.
This is the exact shade of deep-caramel we’re currently obsessed with here at Domino HQ. It’s an inviting neutral capable of adding warmth to any space and pairing nicely with nearly any accent color. This piece comes upholstered in a leather-alternative but has been lightly patinated, which means it will not have that new-chair-sheen to it, making it easier to mix it in with vintage pieces.
Whether you’ve curated the perfectly tranquil, no-colors-allowed, space, or, are simply looking for a breath of neutrality to serve as a canvas and counterpoint to your saturated pillows and rugs, give the light and calming presence of this chair a shot.
One of the new breeds of inventive sofa brands, Capsule has won us over with this Italian-inspired silhouette that looks both exciting and comfortable. Available in a handful of easy-to-employ colors, we’re especially taken by this indigo shade.
Looking for a sofa that spans traditional and modern style? This just might be your piece. The stately silhouette and gently sloping arms project a more traditional presence, while the low seat height, walnut legs, and denim blue upholstery bring forth a streak of modern ease.
There’s a reason this mid-century-inspired shape has endured for decades—the trim, streamlined seats and tasteful wood frame speak of nothing but classic cool. This may not be the sofa you reserve for afternoon naps, but it’s the right place to share a gin & tonic with a side of sparkling conversation.
At $299, the price of this mid-century futon sofa really can’t be beaten. While reviewers note the cushions are on the firm side, the fact that this stylish number easily flips down into a bed confirms its status as a grade-A steal. This would be an ideal solution for an office-turned-occasional-guest-bedroom.
Given you don’t have to rely on them for comfort (as opposed to say, a dining chair), lighting is no place to play it safe. As long as it lights up your room in a consistent manner, why not try a shape that delights the eye? Case in point, we’re feeling this sculptural floor lamp for the way the lovely glass shade balances in an apparently impossible manner on top of the pared-down brass base. This would be an ideal match for your jewel-toned velvet sofa.
At first glance, this brassy number appears more or less traditional in its ultra-simplified shape. That makes it all the more satisfying when you notice a singular detail—an alabaster sphere that interrupts the delicate stem of the base, adding a small touch of unexpected glamour. It’s the satisfyingly unexpected design detail that gets Team Domino up and moving in the morning.
The “Twixt” lamp is just the right piece for a minimalistic or Scandinavian contemporary space that needs to maintain a limited color palette, while not dulling the personality of the space. Although delicately monochromatic, this reserve is balanced by an intriguing base design that appears to humorously reference bent paper clips.
At times it can be challenging to find a table lamp that is versatile enough in height and proportion to work in a variety of contexts. This is why we’re enamored by this Scandinavian-inspired design. It’s neither too tall nor too short, too simple nor too complex. The rounded modular base is subtly eye-catching, especially when rendered in concrete—a material both neutral and unusual.
Need an ultra-affordable light source that doesn’t look cheap? Ditch the plastic goose-neck option you were going to settle for, and try this unique yet approachable light in a walnut and brushed brass finish. The unusual contemporary simplicity of this piece means it would blend easily into most any dresser-top vignette, while still garnering compliments, all for twenty bucks.
For those looking for a more adventurous light source, try this lantern-like design inspired by Japanese architecture. While the structure may be unfamiliar, the neutral, textured materials mean this piece will express itself in a quiet and considered manner. If you’ve embraced a low-slung mattress, try placing directly on the floor for a shot of minimal-cool.
A sweet yet sophisticated, two-tone, mid-century-inspired side table for around $50? Sign us up for at least a pair.
This side table falls somewhere between mid-century modern and traditional. The tapered legs and white marble top would keep this piece easily in line with your modern tufted sofa, while the rich wood tone and petite drawer give it a traditional sensibility.
Feeling like your side table needs are requiring something a bit left of center? We’ve got our eyes on this teak wood and resin stool. The fusion of materials feels like mystical alchemy, but the natural colors, textures, and shape are all familiar enough to blend into the design of your space without needing a magic formula.
Adaptable to entryways, kitchens, or under a window, console tables are the true team player of the furniture world. This mid-mod, acorn-hued number will provide not one, but two, surfaces for storage and styling.
For the city-dweller, a compact, round dining table is often essential for fitting a dining space into an awkward corner and divvying up cramped studio apartment layouts. Conversely, the shape can also function for those with rambling homes and the need for a tea-drinking-nook in the sunroom.
One of the more devastating realizations of furnishing a home is that the essential pieces add up quickly. By the time you’ve acquired the perfect table, you’ve likely stretched the budget too thin to find the accompanying ideal chairs. Not so with this fresh, adaptable three-piece dining set. At just under $250 for the entire setup, you’ll have equipped your space with a unique dining set and still be able to afford food to eat at it.
If you’re looking for the archetypal mid-century dining table, this may be the one for you. It’s ultra versatile shape, color, and size, will adapt to your needs and never go out of style.
Based on the Wegner classic, polished curves rendered in a light oak meet an eye-catching woven leather in a compact seat perfect for a sun-drenched dining room.
The Domino team is fond of this design for the way in which it takes a classic shape, and reimagines it in a durable metal, coated in a range of colors from standard kitchen go-tos (white, black, gray) to this inviting sunflower yellow.
A dining bench is a simple way to diversify your seating while saving space and money (given one bench can accommodate two to three diners). This design equips a mid-century-styled base with a neatly-tailored upholstered seat, adding just enough cushion for those long wine-fueled dinner conversations.
Who doesn’t love a sleek and compact bachelor’s dresser? Perfect for modestly-sized spaces, this three drawer, walnut-finish chest will add storage to your bedroom with debonair flair whether you’re a bachelor or not.
Dressers can often add visual bulk and quickly dominate the room. This oh-so-light-and-airy piece, on the other hand, gives stylistic breathing room by way of its white frame and pale pine drawers, allowing you to decide what should be the focal point of the space.
This refreshing bookshelf is delightfully petite, yet plentiful in storage, with its two, deep-bottom drawers. It would be perfect for showcasing a miniature library, personal mementos, and a plant or two, whilst tucking away any necessary files or clutter into the drawers beneath.
As one reviewer put it, “I was a bit skeptical when I purchased this product because I was getting [it] at such a deal! Assembling it was a breeze and I was so shocked when I saw how sturdy and durable it looked. I get compliments on it from my friends and it is such a beautiful piece.” Take it from someone who’s tried it and add this functional and fashionable console to your entryway or living room for extra storage.

While maintaining functionality with three generously spaced shelves, this airy design also encourages playful styling by way of asymmetrical dividers that create smaller nooks perfect for displaying decorative objects.
We have a full-on crush on this one: part bench, part storage, all tasteful lines and materials.
Consider the state of your entryway for a moment. Whether it’s cluttered with shoes, the dog’s leash, gardening tools, or toys, I’ll bet it could benefit from a little more organization. Stow away your entryway woes with this modern farmhouse take on a cushioned storage bench.
This mid-century modern-styled credenza is just large enough to house all your living room clutter, while also establishing a vignette surface that you can personalize through decorative objects, books, or (my favorite) a large canvas floating just above it.
Can you not feel the silky smooth texture of this beauty on your toes right now? This viscose (a silk alternative) design highlights the fact that a solid rug doesn’t have to be boring. Each colorway reminds of a placid ocean scene, which is a great vibe to set.
Get your color-blocked groove on with this complex palette of washed ochres, desert neutrals, and soft charcoal gray.
Looking more like a mid-century abstract painting than a rug, this conversation piece balances an asymmetrical blocky pattern, with a restrained palette of off-whites, dark heathered-gray, and black. Pair with a dove gray sofa to put on a monochromatic master class.
Want to bring in pattern in a modern, understated way? This op-art print will keep the eye fascinated, yet calm, due to the varied tone-on-tone shades of graphite. Make a splash with a velvet chair in emerald or sapphire.
This minimalistic platform frame in the perfect walnut tone raises your bed without raising costs. An ideal frame for those who want a low profile, unobtrusive bed space.
Oftentimes, upholstered beds can feel heavy and overstuffed (unless given enough room to breath), but not so here. This frame pairs the stripped-back shape of a platform bed, with just enough tailored upholstery to add textural softness and provide a color counterpoint to crisp white or grey linens.
If you’re looking for the support of a headboard, but don’t necessarily want the look of a solid block of wood or fabric, we’d suggest this frame for it’s George Nelson-like slatted headboard design. It would be great for supporting large pillows while still leaving visual space by allowing the eye to see through.
Like the straightforward functionality and affordability of a metal frame but don’t want the severity of common black or silver options? Try this frame in a muted, airy cousin of Millennial Pink.
If you’re going mid-century modern, why not going all the way? This bed frame has afull-onn Eamesian blend of comfort and sleek lines. The headboard is available in a handful of colors, but we’re picturing this washed chartreuse paired nicely with a soft grey wall.
