It's hard to define what mid-century modern actually encompasses, but one thing's for sure: The look has stood the test of time. The Eames lounge chair has been around since the late 1950s, and even the pieces that faded, like the low-seated couch, had a resurgence in the '90s. The popular TV series Mad Men certainly didn't hurt the style's popularity, either.

The style has, however, always been known as a somewhat pricy look to replicate. Luckily, since it's stuck around so long, budget designers have had plenty of time to make quality pieces for a fraction of the cost, which means more of the non-rich among us can take part. 

Whether you're looking for an iconic side table, a showstopping lounge chair or the perfect accent lamp, we've rounded up some of the best mid-century modern decor pieces on the market.
