Mid-Century Modern: Timeless, Elegant Design

Mid-Century Modern: Timeless, Elegant Design. The San Gabriel Valley is home to many historical homes and architectural styles, from the Beaux-Arts Masonic Temple, to the luxurious & contemporary Montana in the heart of Pasadena, to the Arts & Crafts-style Gamble House, to many of the iconic Mid-Century Case Study Houses and the Poppy Peak National Register Historic District

Developed in the decades following the end of World War II, the Mid-Century Modern style is typified by it’s flowing design, simple lines and contemporary patterns. Architecturally, this translates to wide glass windows, sliding glass doors and the use of natural materials to seamlessly connect and create indoor and outdoor flow. While the style has enjoyed immense popularity since the 1940’s, the television show Mad Men has created a new generation of enthusiasts.
