Mid-Century Modern

Mid-Century Modern is in a class by itself — not old by historic standards, but historic in the innovation and aesthetic breakthrough that it brought to home design. Its continued popularity confirms that the history of home building didn’t end when front porches and nine-over-nine windows disappeared from new homes.

Mid-Century homes aren’t as plentiful in the Triad as in the Triangle, Charlotte and the mountains, which makes the relative few here all the more remarkable.
