I've been an interior designer for many years. Trends come and go. Colours are in and out. However an enduring trend I see is the resurgence and love of mid-century modern furniture. I'm more of a European traditionalist when it comes to home interiors. I grew up in the 60's and 70's so I saw first hand all the mod lamps, teak furniture and endless chrome. Many people's decors looked like slightly nicer versions of a "Three's Company" set. Smokey glass and fake wood grain are elements of design I don't need to see again as trends.

To say that these amazing pieces are dated is like saying that a Picasso is old and Cubism was "sooooo 100 years ago!"

I believe that good design is a sweet blend of practicality and timeless aesthetics. Mid-century classics are perfect examples of just that.
