Mid Century Revival

Flipping through magazines, and watching TV, I am noticing a 1950's revival.  Look at the shows on TV, the clothing in the commercials, and some of the great new interiors in the magazines and HGTV.  It's called Mid Century, and it is bringing back things like wall paper, furnishings, and a lot more.  This updated look is a lot more stylish than it was originally, but it's a great look. 

Remember those old Avocado and Harvest Gold appliances, well we still have the shape and the lines, but the colors got an update.  These appliances look great in most kitchens, and have matching dishwashers, ranges, and other appliances.  This model, by Big Chill starts at around $2,495, and similar models have been featured on The Rachael Ray Show. 

This 50's inspired light fixture by Objects20C is a great lighting fixture and accent piece for many rooms, including the living room or dining room.  This light fixture starts at around $7,500 and is 36" high and 18" in diameter. 

The Rain Drop Mirror by Uttermost, Priced from $99, is a great accent for an off shaped wall, or over a side board in a dining room.  Mirrors work great to reflect light, and make the space appear larger. 
The Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen, starting from $3000, just celebrated their 50 year anniversary, and work great in many rooms of the house, and come in many fabrics, textures, and colors. 
This Chest of Drawers available from Objects20c from about $2,750 is a classic mid century design, and provides great storage.
