What Is Mid-Century Modern Style?

Following the years directly after the end of World War II, the United States experienced a booming economic period of growth. Many newly created, young families were looking for ways to furnish their first homes and wanted a style to reflect the optimistic outlook many had following WWII. This period is when mid-century modern design was first introduced and completely changed how society perceives form and function. People wanted to differentiate their homes from the previous generations before the war; they wanted homes to be more family-orientated, functional, and efficient all while retaining that clean and beautiful aesthetic. During this period of time, mid century modern furniture dominated art, interior design, and architecture. By providing the ability to feature gentle curves, combining multiple materials, and clean lines, mid-century modern design has lasting effects on home décor to this day. 

Mid-Century Modern Desks in 2021

Even in 2021, mid-century modern design has proven time and again that this beautiful style is here to stay in the United States. It is easy to see why this style remains so popular since it reminisces about a time where simplicity and functionality were the focus of home décor. For people looking for a workstation that combines both function and clean aesthetic, mid century design offers the best of both worlds. There are many modern desks on the market that follow this classic aesthetic and it is pretty well-known that the best mid-century modern computer desks and mid-century modern writing desks will always offer the ability of prioritizing space and incorporating the functionally ergonomic design that is necessary for a person to be productive.

Of course, nowadays we live in a futuristic society where we need our furniture to be smart enough to handle all of our day-to-day needs while still being ergonomically efficient. Ever been in a situation where your phone was dying and you just couldn’t find that pesky charger or you didn't have a free outlet nearby? Or you’re trying to work but your charging station is at a completely different location than your desk? At FENLO, we recognized that sometimes we all need a little bit of convenience in our lives. We wanted to redefine the “modern”  in “mid century modern desk” while still retaining the classic look that we all love. The end result is a beautiful desk that incorporates integrated wireless charging, USB & USB-C charging ports, a power outlet, an embedded desk lamp, and two switches to control it all.

The biggest difference that sets our mid century modern desk apart from the rest of the market, and what solidifies it as the absolutely best desk for studying or working in the 21st century, is the ability to charge all of your devices all within one desk. The Future charging desk includes an embedded wireless charger, a USB charging port, and lastly a USB-C charging port.  Oh, not to mention that the future desk also includes an AC power outlet for those who struggle with open outlets at home. No need to throw in all these extra charging accessories when you can simply charge laptops, smartphones, tablets, and all other devices within one conveniently made desk.

If you’re looking for a mid-century modern desk, you are most likely looking for a compact desk that can fit in your home without committing too much space. The ability to place the desk in any room while fitting in with any style and without looking clunky is important to those who are interested in this particular modern style of desks.  Of course, there is a balance to be had between minimalism and being optimal for work so we have ensured that our Future desk can accomplish all of your work tasks while still remaining minimal. Our desk has a length of 39.4 inches, a width of 22 inches, and a height of 28.3 inches (61.6 including lamp) when fully assembled so that you easily place laptops, notebooks, and plenty of other accessories without feeling too cluttered.

A Modern Workstation Built To Last

At FENLO we choose to use eco-friendly, hiqh-quality materials for the base of our mid century modern desk. We specifically chose specialized, high-quality engineered wood because it allows for our desk to retain a clean, glossy finish while still being smooth and pleasant to the touch. There is very little noticeable grain on the table itself, which is essential for those who are wanting to optimize their modern workstation to suit their study or work needs. Of course, it wouldn’t be mid-century design if we didn’t incorporate beautifully crafted round tapered legs to prop up our desk. The tapered legs themselves are created in a way to ensure longevity and durability, while also being fully stress tested, so that you can confidently place your laptop, phone, notebooks, and more all upon your modern desk without worry.

Modern Desk with a Built-in Desk Lamp

To further optimize your workflow, this gorgeous mid century wooden desk also includes an embedded lamp that features a domed linen lampshade that encapsulates the mid century modern aesthetic. The lamp itself is also fully adjustable in a 360 degree radius so you can simply adjust the lamp to fit your aesthetic. To top it all off, our desk also includes a power switch specifically for the lamp itself which allows you to control the lighting to suit your workflow.

Save Energy with Energy Efficient Power Switches

Worried about wasting energy when your charging ports are not in use? Well don’t fret because unlike every other mid century modern desk on the market, the Future charging desk also includes two switches to control the power to your workstation. One switch is capable of controlling the power of the desk lamp whilst the other energy efficient switch is capable of controlling the power to the built-in charging station, specifically the USB & USB-C ports. We felt it was essential to include both of these features in our desk so that you can conserve energy when the charging ports are not in use.
