Whether you’re an avid collector or a casual enthusiast, it’s always fun to stay abreast of the latest trends in collecting. Here’s predictions on what could be hot in 2023 in the world of mid-century and collectibles.
Mid-Century Furniture & Home Décor
Mid-century furniture and home decor will continue to remain popular with its classic lines, modern style and craftsmanship. With the continued growth of television shows like Mad Men and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, we can expect more people looking to recreate that 1950s vibe at home. Mid-century furniture is now easier than ever to find online, making it accessible for all budgets. The key is finding pieces that are still in good condition, as many vintage pieces require some restoration work before they can be used again.
