Why the Latest Trend is BAUHAUS, a Furniture Style for the Future

Posted by Winny Rotsidis on Jun 1, 2018 10:00:00 AM

The idea was to integrate an open space setting by using natural lighting (e.g. windows around the house) and an easy indoor/outdoor transition that's exemplified in Eichler-style homes. These distinct architectural elements inspired an innovative furniture style that's called Mid-Century (Mid-Mod, Modernism, Post-Modern).
