The Best Mid-Century Modern Pieces for Small Spaces

I am a huge sucker for gorgeous mid-century modern pieces, especially when it comes to bedroom furniture/decor. The struggle: finding pieces that fit in small spaces.

mid century modern dresser

As most of you know, I moved into an apartment right outside of Boston last fall and I have been STRUGGLING to decorate my teeny tiny room. To give you a better idea of the space I am working on, my room is 7′ x 13′ with two windows (including the trim measure at 39″), a door (including the trim measures at about 40″) that leads to a balcony, and a closet that is not set into the wall. The door is kitty cornered, leaving me with a very minuscule amount of workable wall space. I can only have my bed in spot in my room, which leaves me with two working walls for furniture – the first measuring roughly 7 feet and the second measuring roughly 5.5 feet. With the ways the doors open, I’m even more limited in the sizes of the furniture on those walls.

So now that we have the scoop (I’ll share a full reveal once I get my life together), you can understand that my room is very, very small and finding furniture that works with the size of the space and is practical has become quite the challenge. I am reworking one of the areas of my room but after a solid 4 months, I finally decided on this dresser and I’m obsessed!

Mid-Century Modern End Table

I love a good statement piece and the gorgeous legs on this end table are so fun! The overhang makes it easy to pull over the couch if you’re catching up on work or enjoying a cup of soup on a cold day. The deep walnut color can be mixed in with other wood in your home and still look flawless.

Evelina Round Dining Table

I’m *totally* obsessed with the dining table in my apartment but it’s my roommates and she’s moving out soon (to move in with her boyfriend, SO freakin cute!!) so we’re in the market for a new table. Our current one is rectangular, which is the best shape for the space, but I’m loving this circle glass top one so much! Fingers crossed it works.

Measurements: 35.5″ L x 35.5″ W x 30.5″ H

Berrier Sofa

I have this weird obsession with shopping for sofas. Don’t ask me why, but I do. Whether you decide to go for a sectional, something more traditional, or a trendy soft, the entire vibe of your living room changes by that one piece of furniture. Right now I’m swooning over all of the pink couches but this one has great reviews, the color is super neutral, and I’m obsessing over the legs!

Measurements: 89″ W x 33″ D x 35.8″ H
