MID-CENTURY MODERN KITCHENS
Enjoy the timeless charm of a Mid-Century modern kitchen where retro elements blend with modern design
Mid-Century modern design emerged in the mid-20th century, spanning from the mid-1940s to the late 1960s. Characterised by clean lines, organic shapes, natural materials, and a minimalistic approach to ornamentation, it is known for its seamless fusion of form and function. In recent years, the Mid-Century modern aesthetic has experienced a notable resurgence, establishing a strong presence in contemporary interior design.
Think wood tones and organic sleek shapes, which are infused with pops of colour through interesting tile and decor choices.

Feature highlight: Wooden Elements
Incorporating natural wood features is a hallmark trait of Mid-Century modern kitchens. Wood can be showcased in cabinetry, flooring, kitchen islands, and can be used to harmoniously blend with existing architectural elements such as ceiling beams. Warm tones such as teak or walnut with a rich wood grain are typical of Mid-Century modern style.
Rich, warm wood tones evoke a retro, cosy ambiance, yet when used innovatively—using modern wood materials like STECCAWOOD battens or custom cabinetry with wood veneer—they bring a contemporary edge to the kitchen design.
