Midcentury-modern no more? These fall home trends offer an alternative.

For keen serial redecorators, it’s time to start thinking about an autumn refresh.

This fall, interior designers say there’s demand for eclectic styles, interesting prints, rich hues and warm textures.

Style sense

The trim, tailored lines of midcentury decor have been ensconced in the home furnishings marketplace for several years now; versions of iconic pieces can be found in all big-box retailers. Has the beloved style peaked?

Some designers see an easing of the fever, but that doesn’t mean midmod is going anywhere.

“It has saturated the market,” says designer Elizabeth Stuart, of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. “(But) I think the interesting thing is that unlike the ‘industrial’ look, the midcentury ‘comeback’ has proven not to be just a fad but an awareness and a respected way of designing. Amazing furniture and fabric designers came out of that time — Florence Knoll, the Eameses, Saarinen — design that’s held its own and shown the world that it never really left.”
