Yes, mid-century modern design is still alive. Even more than 50 years later, millennials in particular cannot stop buying futuristic Italian lamps from the 1960s and furniture by Herman Miller. But a trademark of the retro design wave has hit a nerve: chrome. You will find that metal-finished items like mirrors and dining room chairs sell out very quickly in places like Etsy and CB2. While decorating my new apartment, I also went on Chromblitz and bought a Sonneman-inspired table lamp for my sideboard. You can easily bring this trend to the room with a vintage light fixture or mini end table, but to avoid conflict, keep the metals in your room one shade.
