Mid-Century is an iconic design movement that is still trendy nowadays. It’s a term that describes mid–20th-century developments in interior, product, and graphic design, architecture, and urban development. From roughly 1933 to 1965. First of all, it was used mid-1950 as a style descriptor. Since, it has been reaffirmed in 1983 by Cara Greenberg in her book’s title; Mid-Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s (Random House). As a result, she brought to life the style. Nowadays, this design movement is recognized worldwide.
“For mid-century designers, materials were used for their own distinct, even deliberately artificial qualities and never to imitate the groove of wood or marble. They embraced relatively new materials like metal, glass, vinyl, and plywood, offsetting these with wood to create novel, exciting juxtapositions. Often a piece of furniture would combine only two materials or two colours – creating tension and harmony without fuss or superfluous ornament.”

Mid-century inspiration from Brabbu
The brand Brabbu has been looking for inspiration in France to create this piece. Due to the origins of The Bourbon dining chair, you’ll add a fancy mid-century touch to your interior with the class and luxury dedicated to Bourbon dynasty. As a result, Bourbon Dining Chair embodies this opulence through its button-tufted inner back, rich velvet cotton and ebony wood veneer legs. This fabric chair makes up any refined dining room design.
In addition, we have found another amazing piece from Brabbu: the KOI Dining table. As KOI carps are recurring symbols of Japanese culture. The decorative purposes of these symbols have made them being highly appreciated. Not only in water gardens as in Irezumi practice but also, most commonly, in tattoos. The KOI scales from the sides of the tables shine and reﬂect – on its brass surface – the sun caught throughout the clear water. KOI and the Japanese word for love or affection are homophones, making the carp also a symbol of love and friendship.
