WHAT IS A MID-CENTURY MODERN WORKSPACE?
Like Mid Century living and dining rooms, the Mid Century workspace should be uncluttered, full of earthy tones and designed for maximum functionality. Mid Century workspaces are a common sight in American movies and they usually belong to executives who are high up on the company’s hierarchy. The furniture in these settings are typically made of walnut, equipped with beveled edges and topped with antique bronze finishes. On this page, you will find office desks, chairs and others that fall in line with the mid century design. For specific models, please refer to the section below!
RECOMMENDED MID CENTURY MODELS FOR YOUR WORKSPACE
For office desks, a must-have is the AK 1330. It is, quite possibly, our best selling office desk. With tappered legs, white laminate top and a hidden compartment for notes and wires, it is the definition of a director’s desk. Another noteworthy mention is the Grossman 62 Desk, which is a design by Greta Grossman, one of the few female designers that made a name for herself in the 1950s.
To accompany these absolutely stunning office desks, we recommend an equally stunning office chair such as the Capisco 8106 Office Chair with arms by Peter Opsvik. For bookcases, we would recommend the AK 2770 in walnut, which compliments the AK 1330 extremely well, as seen in our wonderful furniture pair blog here.
Of course, there is more to a house than a comfortable workspace. Explore our Mid Century Collection to view other room furnitures with the same style.
