Anyone that knows me well, knows that I have a thing for the 1960’s! I live in a 60’s house, listen to a lot of 60’s music, and watch reruns of Bewitched and I Dream of Jeanie every chance I get! Don’t even get me started on Mad Men and how there are only 3 episodes left! I watch every episode twice and spend far too much time analysing every little detail! Needless to say, I love Mid-Century Modern design! Today I want to share some of my favourite Mid-Century Modern picks for kids. These items are a mix of mid-century designed pieces and contemporary pieces that are mid-century in feel! Most of these items have a designer price tag which is not always so budget-friendly. Consider teaming up a designer investment piece, like the Eames Hang It All, with more afforable designs, like the alternative options offered below the Mid-Century Modern selection.
