Midcentury Modern was a design movement from the middle of the 20th century. Sleek lines and molded shapes, looking almost futuristic in appearance, dominated this midcentury modern era. Furnishings were made of bent plywood, foam, aluminum, fiberglass, steel, and plastic. Mass production came into being, making this period affordable to the American public. Furniture had limited hardware. The Midcentury Modern drawer pulls and knobs were simplistic representing the sleek lines that defined the furniture of this era. Each drawer pull and knob was well crafted, made of brass, nickel or wood.
