There are countless stores and websites devoted specifically to midcentury modern tastes. Everyone knows someone with a story about an unbelievable find on Craigslist or eBay. Believe it or not, baby boomers should get much of the credit for the recent decorating frenzy. Andrea Hsu wrote this for National Public Radio: “After World War II, home ownership surged. People who bought homes in the 1950s and ’60s would now be in their 70s and 80s. Many no longer want or need houses full of furniture.”
This has caused a flood in the market of Mid-Century Modern furnishing . With so much inventory being available, everyone from the nostalgic children of those boomers to their twenty something grandkids is adopting the style. But there are also psychological reasons for the popularity — and you can partly thank Apple for them.
