10 Amazing Looks For a Midcentury-Modern Sideboard
I am currently in the midst of a room makeover; we are turning my dining room into a den. I debated about this switch-up quite a bit, but in the end I wanted our home to feel more purposeful throughout the year and not just on special occasions. The design plan for this room was heavily rooted in my desire to use THIS piece. You see, I have had a little crush on midcentury-modern furnishings since finding the console below for just $10 at a thrift store. It was an old stereo from the early 1950s that I turned into a sideboard. I loved the lines, the length, and the structural integrity of it, and for the price I couldn’t pass it up. I think everyone in my family thought I was crazy, with the exception of my husband — he knows me so well. After cleaning it up, taking out the mechanics, and painting it, it turned out to be the best purchase I have ever made for our home.
Since this bargain of the century, I have had a thing for midcentury sideboards. Honestly the length is perfect for any space: the bedroom, family room, nursery, and even bathroom. And its emphasis on simplicity makes it a great piece to mix with other styles. For these reasons and many more, I am obsessed! Here are 10 amazing looks for the midcentury-modern sideboard.
Soft Elegance: This midcentury stunner makes for the prettiest little changing table and gives an edge to this soft and elegance space. The sleek lines and warm caramel hue complements the neutrals tones and patterns quite well.
Clean & Simple: Another great use for this versatile piece is a bedroom dresser. Set against crisp white walls, the unique shape becomes a standout. Decorated with a simple but large bamboo mirror, this sideboard makes a beautiful statement without cluttering the walls.
Artsy & Collected: Bringing in art to make your sideboard feel complete is always a great option. Art can inspire a color palette and lend interest to your vertical space.
Cultural Influence: Adding function to your family spaces doesn’t always have to mean incorporating a media center. The sideboard can be a great place to showcase art from your travels and cultural experiences.
Soft & Neutral: Peace and tranquility is often what we hope to achieve in the bedroom. Using cozy textures and neutrals with a midcentury-modern piece creates a beautiful balance that promotes rest and gives a minimalistic sensibility.
Modern Mix: You’ve gotta love a good mix of styles, art, color, shapes and patterns that feels intentional and fresh in a space. Blending modern circular shapes like this gold mirror and vases adds a beautiful contrast with this one-of-a-kind linear piece.
Eclectic & Edgy: Mixing art above any bold statement piece makes for a fantastic focal point. Creating a gallery wall is a great use of vertical space and makes a sideboard feel current and on-trend.
Refined Boho: Minimalistic, simple, and so chic. Sometimes less can be more: add a pop of color and pattern on the floor and you have a sensible and stylish space that is livable and gorgeous.
Glamour Redefined: And sometimes more is more. Making your space reflect your personal style is key; mixing styles and textures can be a bold move but the payoff is huge.
Relaxed Scandinavian: Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it? I could use more of this in my life for sure! Again, blending styles in a minimalist way with an emphasis on texture and neutrals will always be a desired look.
