In 1998 a new design trend, called mid-century, had become very popular: cool creative types were tossing aside their thrift store décor in favor of midcentury modern.

Jill Singer, a founder of the design magazine Sight Unseen: “When this stuff was designed, it was specifically made to be democratic and to be lived with. It makes sense that it has a wide appeal. It’s beautiful materials, classic simple shapes that can seem timeless.”
