What is Midcentury Modern?

Saying mid-century modern's had a revival would be one serious understatement. It's hit such a mainstream appeal that one might roll their eyes at yet another reproduction of the infamous Eames Shell Chair. Over the years, MCM, like any era of design, evolved. The 1939 World's Fair in New York City had brought the geometric forms and clean lines of the Bauhaus and Danish Modernist movements into the American consciousness. With the American Dream becoming more of a reality to the middle class, designers and architects honed in on their populist message: Design should not only be beautifully constructed, functional, and efficient, but attainable
