So it’s time to create your wedding gift list but where do you start? Prezola have a collection of over 50,000 gifts from 500 top brands so you can create a personalised list that perfectly reflects you as a couple. But with so much choice where do you start?

Take some inspiration from the latest interior design style focus, Mid-Century Modern.

Mid-Century modern encompasses the most iconic design decades of the 20th Century taking inspiration from classic styles of the ’40s through to the ’70s and combining them with contemporary shapes, patterns and fabrics. Instantly recognisable, it focuses on both style and function creating pieces that not only make your home look great but are also practical.

Here are our top tips for introducing this edgy trend into your home…

Make a statement

An essential piece for any mid-century modern home is statement seating. With the right design, colours and textures, a bold armchair or sofa can make the perfect focal point for any room. Whether you prefer sleek curves or angled edges, when paired with classic wooden arms and retro tapered legs the result is a relaxed timeless style that never goes out of fashion.

A new sofa can be a big ask for a single guest to gift you which is why Prezola offers group gifting on big ticket items. This feature allows your guests to contribute any amount they would like meaning a group of friends or family members can all chip in and get you what you really want.

Illuminating ideas

Lighting can really make a room and help to create the perfect ambiance and warmth around your home. Introduce subtle touches of mid-century modern by adding a table or floor lamp. Rich, dark wooden tones teamed with bold lampshades make for a perfect balance of retro and contemporary.

Perfectly placed pattern

Contrast the simplistic lines of your furniture by introducing beautifully bold patterns. Add a chevron cushion to a sleek armchair or add a pop of colour with a bright, bold patterned print on the wall.

Style and function

It’s important for furniture to not only look great but also to work for you practically too. If you’re looking for the perfect stylish storage that makes a statement look no further than Swoon. Exclusive to Prezola you won’t find them on any other gift list. With a great range of beautifully crafted products, Swoon has nailed the quintessential mid-century modern look, combining organic shapes and materials with contemporary, minimalist designs. Their mid-century inspired sideboard is an excellent way to add a subtle retro vibe into your living room whilst also creating valuable storage space.
