Mid Century Modern is one of the most popular interior design styles for a very good reason. This originated in the 1950’s, and it was so incredibly cool that it’s still great, even to this day. For those of you out there who loved watching shows like Mad Men and reminiscing about the “good old days”, midcentury modern is probably the best style for you. These pieces are considered to be very urban, and you are likely to still see them in trendy New York apartments today. The only issue is that if you go to the store to look for pieces, it can cost a small fortune to get the look you want. Here at Home Addict, we have assembled some of the best pieces that are available online with just the click of a button.

30. Nathan James Multipurpose Storage Unit 

Every dining room or living room needs some sort of credenza to place all of your odds and ends. After all, where else would you show off your cool decor items like a vintage radio or record player? This storage unit by Nathan James is made with a combination of engineered wood and pine, and it’s stained in a dark walnut color. The 3 white doors help to hide away anything that you don’t want to be seen out in the open, but it also leaves some space to display your favorite books and artwork. Since this is a multipurpose storage unit, this could be used as a TV stand or a bar as well. Normally, mid century modern style credenzas can cost over $1,000 at a furniture store, but here you can get it for under $150!

If you’re a fan of mid century furniture, you may have heard of the famous Eames Chair, which was originally designed in 1956. Back in the 1960’s, it became incredibly popular among the New York elite, and it is still around to this day. This is supposed to be a perfectly ergonomic chair that is one of the most comfortable things you will ever sit in. If you were to buy an authentic Eames, it would cost you $6,500. But this model is just $630. Yes, this is still an expensive chair compared to something you might find at Ikea, but it is a fraction of what the real one would cost. If you are simply trying to achieve the look, but don’t necessarily care about the branding, it could potentially be an amazing deal.

Whether you’re looking for side tables to go on each end of the bed, or you want something in your living room to put down your remote and a cup of wine, these end tables from Nathan James are a great option. They come in several wood stains and colors, so they could match whatever decor you already have in your home. Each of these tables are $90. This may seem expensive to anyone who is used to shopping at discount stores like Home Goods, where you might find end tables for closer to $50. But if you are looking for this exact vibe in your home, the price is actually much cheaper than you would imagine. For example, at West Elm, they sell almost identical side tables for $300 each, so this is actually a bargain.

Need a drink? Look no further than this bar cart. Credit: Linon Gina

27. Linon Gina Bar Cart 

Years ago, it was far more acceptable for adults to come home after work and make a cocktail every day to alleviate their stress. It was considered to be normal, and alcoholism and addiction was not as well known or understood. Most offices in New York City allowed the men would drink and smoke during business meetings, so it was considered to be normal, if not expected of everyone to drink. Displaying your alcohol collection was a must for bachelor pads. Even today, if you go over someone’s house to see a bar cart, you know they are down to have a good time. If you also enjoy a nice beverage after sundown, check out the Linon Gina Bar Cart. It has wheels, so you can move it wherever it is more convenient for you, and the mirrored shelves make a beautiful look next to the brass legs.

If you love music, you just might need a media console in your life. Credit: Crosley

21. Crosley Media Console

The ultimate hipster stereotype is having a turn table in your home. Back in the 1950’s, people had record players build into huge pieces of furniture which had built-in stereo speakers. If you wanted to get a genuine vintage piece, they start at $500 on places like Etsy and go upwards of $6,000, depending on the brand and style. And unfortunately, the authentic pieces are also incredibly heavy, and therefore hard to move. Once you have it, you’re basically stuck with it forever. (I’m speaking from experience, because we have one at my parent’s house.) So this Crosley Media Console is actually a perfect compromise. You can place your existing record player inside of the slot, and it even has a super cute display rack for your record collection. The best part is that it’s only $264.

This couch from Container Furniture comes in several colors including two shades of blue, goldenrod, grey, and purple.

Surprisingly, this couch is just $250, which makes it equally as cheap (or cheaper) than something you would find at Ikea. The only downsides to the couch are that it is small, and customer reviews say that it’s not the type that is comfortable enough to sit on all night.

12. Bowrain Sputnik Light Fixture

One of the coolest types of light fixtures you can find are the “Sputnik” chandeliers. Just like a satellite, the arms of the chandelier point in several directions, which aims light at multiple parts of the room. The number of bulbs in each chandelier can change depending on the one you order, but they are usually 6 or 8 bulbs per fixture. At most stores, these chandeliers are in the ballpark of $400 each, but you can actually buy one online for only $94. The one and only criticism I have seen of these online is that since there are so many bulbs, people have to install a dimmer so that they can control the brightness of the lights. After all, you don’t want to be blinded.

This slatted coffee table is far more interesting than many other tables out there. Credit: Nathan James

11. Nathan James Slatted Coffee Table

Most coffee tables are just a plain, solid wooden table with four legs. That’s all well and good, but if you want to elevate your midcentury modern design just a but, consider this Nathan James slatted coffee table. This coffee table reminds me of a bench that my mother had in her home, with its long rectangular shape. The fact that it has wooden slats gives texture to the piece, which makes it far more interesting to look at. And the fact that it is small and narrow means that it will go well in a small apartment, or if you are limited on space. This style very reminiscent of the 1960’s, and something you don’t see every day. It’s available online for $127, and you can get it in just two days with Amazon Prime.

10. Modway Spiral Table

Part of the appeal of mid century modern furniture is the fact that it’s not your typical style that you see every day. It was popular back in the 1950’s through the 70’s, and for a few years, it had completely disappeared from American homes. Only now, we see a resurgence, and it can make a big impact. A lot of the pieces you would see in a home almost feel like they belong in an art gallery. This spiral table by Modway is a great example of how furniture can sometimes resemble a piece of art, because of its interlocking metal rods. The wooden top is made of real walnut, so it should be high quality that would last you for years. If you like this table, it’s $400 online.

Nearly all of us have had a bad experience with an uncomfortable couch from Ikea, and that can be a truly disappointing disaster. This Rivet Aiden tufted leather sofa looks incredibly stylish, and you should be proud to show it off to your family and friends when they come to visit.

In the 1960’s, brass and gold accessories became very popular, and you would see them in almost every middle-class home in America. So it only makes sense that if you wanted a mid century modern style, you would want to incorporate those into your home. These two wall sconces are reminiscent of a sun burst, and they will cast a shadow when you turn on the lights at night. It would look beautiful in a bathroom on either side of a mirror, which gives it a huge “wow” factor before walking into a room.

6. DG Casa Soloman Upholstered Bed

Once you switch over to an upholstered bed, you may never go back. Sitting up at night on your laptop, talk on the phone, or to watch TV instantly becomes more comfortable, and there is never any danger of accidentally banging your head. The only problem is that a lot of upholstered beds out there look overly feminine. This mid century style bed by DG Casa Soloman is actually very masculine, because of its wooden frame and gray tufted upholstery. You never want to go too cheap on a bed. Speaking from personal experience, I had an upholstered bed that only cost $200, and after two years, I needed to get it repaired. This DG Casa Soloman bed looks significantly more sturdy and long-lasting, and it’s just $575. Compared to beds from West Elm, Pottery Barn, and Anthropologie that cost $1,000 or more, this is actually a steal.

If you search on Etsy, you will see that people are selling genuine vintage starburst clocks for $100 to $300 each. If you don’t mind getting a modern vintage replica, and you want something more fun than brass or gold, try out this multicolored wall clock instead. On Amazon, there are a lot of different varieties ranging from $50 to $100, depending on the style and color scheme you choose.

4. Singford Artwork

Mid Century Modern artwork is retro, and often has has minimalist vibe. You may be familiar with Piet Mondrain’s color block paintings, which are simple squares of red, white, blue, yellow and black. As the years went on, people did their own creative rendition of color blocking and playing with colors and shapes. While there are thousands of mid century inspired pieces out there on Amazon, I chose the Singford Nordic mountain canvas art for $36. This piece in particular is calming, and has colors that would match a lot of homes out there. It’s also perfect if you are trying to balance a masculine and feminine style to suit a more unisex environment.

A company called Armen makes dining room chairs for $94 each. These might be cool to use as a desk chair, but if you had four to six of these sitting around your dining room table, it would give an air of luxury for an affordable price.
