Here at Ciseal, we’re always on the lookout for new takes on Midcentury style. It’s amazing to see well-cared-for vintage Mid Century pieces set the tone for a room. And what we really love about Midcentury is how it’s still inspiring designers to create new works today. When those vintage pieces coexist with modern pieces it creates a super interesting mix that pays homage to the past yet feels current. Here are some of our favorite Mid Century inspired furniture pieces designed and made by independent American craftspeople today.
The first thing that stands out about the Boulevard Table is it’s craftsmanship. This table is built to last from specifically selected quality materials and tried and true craftsmanship. It’s safe to say that this beauty will last a lifetime or more! The Midcentury inspired angular base creates a lightness to the design so the table doesn’t take up too much visual weight.

Need a special something to brighten up your kitchen? The Riff Raff Kitchen Island is your answer. The bright powder coated pegboard and gorgeous black walnut island provides some cheery extra storage for your cookbooks, spoons, spatulas, colanders - all of the riff raff that kitchen’s accumulate. It’s also a super functional option as a sideboard or buffet. Check out the Riff Raff Kitchen Island and Wake the Tree's other pieces in their shop.
You had us at bent plywood. The minimal yet comfortable Roxy Arm Chair is the perfect addition to any Midcentury inspired room. The molded plywood seat is just like a warm hug, and that bright Pendleton fabric just looks hot when paired with the warm wood veneer.

The geometric lines of the Black Diamond coffee table draw us in like no other. The ebonized black walnut sets a graphic tone for this table that is mesmerizing from any angle. Plus, when you combine four of them together, they create even more interesting shapes and angles where they connect.

Classic Midcentury lines and impeccable craftsmanship is the name of the game with the Mag Table. If Don Draper was designing your living room he would insist on this coffee table.

The Soren Chair’s minimal aesthetic and it’s naturally beautiful materials pay the perfect homage to it’s Midcentury inspiration. This is a bold statement in a relatively clean-lined chair. The wood and leather play off of each other to provide a graphic, geometric look that we love. Check out the Soren Chair and Coil & Drift’s other pieces in their shop.
