There is something undeniably charming about Mid-Century Modern style. It’s unique blend of materials and characteristically clever designs can take a room in a number of different directions. Pair it up with some rustic pieces and you get a casual, comfortable feeling. Mix it with more contemporary furniture and you have an artful, sophisticated style.
Laminate Floors and the Mid-Century Modern Style
We’ve created a mood board with one of our favorite floors in the hope of inspiring you to explore the Mid-Century style. This particular mood board glams up our eclectic Mid-Century décor by adding a little glimmer in the cocktail table and accents. The gold tones really pop against the bold teals and rich browns in the palate.
To ground the room we’ve selected one of our favorite floors, Maison Oak Planks from the Quick•Step Envique™ collection. The warm color and rustic style of the floor create an interesting contrast to the sophisticated lines in the couch and cocktail table. On close inspection you’ll find the floors not only look like real wood, they feel like it too. Thanks to a specially patented process the grain pattern of the planks is embossed into the surface.
Laminate Floors Stand Up to An Active Household
Envique™ Maison Oak Planks not only look good but they’ll stand up to an active household. A tough finish resists scuffs, micro-scratches, even heels caused by heavy traffic. And the patented HydroSeal™ coating and tight locking joints work together to lock out localized spills up to 24 hours. So these floors can be used places like kitchens, baths and laundry rooms.
If you’re as mad about Mid-Century Modern style as we are there are several great places to shop for the look. If you’re in the mood to explore try your local vintage store or flea market. You can find some great original pieces that just need a little TLC. There are also several retailers online that offer reproductions or Mid-Century looks with their own a unique twist — West Elm, Room and Board, and Dot & Bo to name just a few. You’ll find the Mid-Century Modern style is great as a stand-alone look or as as part of a unique eclectic look.
