Design2Sell’s Mid-Century Modern series continues with a staple item of this trend- Bar Carts. Bar carts keep barware and alcohol on hand for easy access while entertaining, and are often used for an extra storage spot for accessories.

They radiate elegance and chicness and have become quite popular again.

design2sell: Design2Sell Mid-Century Modern Design Series: PLANTS - 10/18/13 10:27 AM
Design2Sell’s take on Mid-century Modern Design Series includes Plants & Planters. Mid-century modern planters can be the perfect finishing touches to your modern patio and garden furniture, interior courtyard or even on your side table in your living room. This trend could be using clean, crisp, sweeping lines and sharp, geometric shapes with your planter and mixing materials to create a variety of texture. This can be done by using rock, grass, wood, and metal or crushed stone. When selecting plants for your pots it would be wise to pick water-wise plants as they maintain their foliage year- round and are … (0 comments)
