Mid-century modern is the sweetheart of the design world. But, like any relationship, our love can get a little stale sometimes. We think this style is much longer-lasting than a trend, though. And with a few tweaks, we can easily reignite the spark. We looked at everything we love about mid-century glamour — curved lines! sleek seating! timeless style! — through a fresh lens and put together three new ways to style your living room.

Whichever mid-century style wins your heart, Walmart can help you bring your mood board to life with on-trend furnishings at affordable prices, including big names like Safavieh and Flower Home by Drew Barrymore. Read on for some serious inspo.

Look #1: Rose and Gold

A rose-and-gold palette adds warmth and depth to mid-century spaces that could otherwise be a little chilly. We love the rich mustard tone of the Upholstered Tufted Sofa, especially when accessorized with a crisp white throw pillow. Add a couple of rosy-cheeked accents — like a shimmery retro-glam tray and an eye-catching multi-tier accent table — and you’ve got a welcoming twist on mid-century glam.

Look #2: Deco Jewels

Embrace rich colors, sumptuous materials, and all of the gold. The Ibiza Sofa gives big Gatsby vibes and comes in a rainbow of jewel tones. This accent chair upgrades a classic MCM look with a silver frame, while the MoDRN Circular Velvet Floor Cushion puts a luxe twist on extra seating. And what’s more mid-century than a handsome piece of wood furniture? This Baxton Studio sideboard has serious Art Deco style.

Look #3: Tranquil Neutral

Let the elegance of mid-century design shine with an understated color palette and well-chosen accents that don’t overwhelm. This clean white MoDRN Scandinavian throw pillow is the definition of an elevated basic, with geometric pleating that adds texture and visual interest. The ultra-sleek profile of the Safavieh Jonas floor lamp adds a whisper of mid-century glamour. And we are obsessed with this Bali coffee table: Does anything say mid-century more than its classic old world chestnut finish?
