Mid-Century Modern Furniture Buyer

NYC and Long Island Mid-Century Modern Furniture Buyer

Saarinen_TulpanstolenThe Mid-Century Modern furniture market is hot! Furniture from the 50s and 60s is in extremely high demand today. It’s hard to believe that 100-year-old antique wood furniture has become very difficult to sell. Instead, furniture a half-century old is what buyers and designers are looking for. Heavy oversized dark mahogany wood antique furniture is being replaced. The Mid-Century Modern furniture designers used materials such as steel, lucite, glass, and plastic. The popular colors of furniture from the Mid-Century period include light brown, white, black, and just about all colors of the rainbow. Modern furniture is often curved and tends to have a clean look. Many Mid-Century Modern designers come from the United States and Denmark.
