Mid Century Modern

I am obsessed with Mid Century Modern furniture.  My dining room is a slightly worn mid century modern set that a friend of the family gave me before I moved down to Florida, I bought two tables from craigslist for a $45, and just this past year J and I bought a bedroom furniture set from an estate sale in Cocoa Beach.  A king size headboard, 2 dressers, 2 mirrors, and 2 nightstands for $375!!!  This particular era of furniture has made a comeback in recent years and deals like this are practically unheard of, which is why I'm so thrilled with it. 

Despite the fact that my house is now filled to overflowing with furniture (seriously, I have my old bedroom set in my upstairs hallway...) I am for some reason still fixated on hunting down deals on this amazing furniture style.  I search ebay and craigslist every now and then - my dream, to find a freestanding electric cone fireplace and a bar cart, both of course in the mid century modern style.  Since I can never seem to justify making the purchase, I have lately been consoling myself with the following blog, a great take on the styles of the era: Atomic Living
