Midcentury Objects For Sale on 1stDibs

An assortment of midcentury objects is available at 1stDibs. Each of these unique midcentury objects was constructed with extraordinary care, often using metal, ceramic and glass. Midcentury objects have long been popular, with older editions for sale from the 18th Century and newer versions made as recently as the 21st Century. Midcentury objects bearing Mid-Century Modern or Scandinavian Modern hallmarks are very popular at 1stDibs. Midcentury objects have been a part of the life’s work for many furniture makers, but those produced by Rörstrand, Gunnar Nylund and Cenedese are consistently popular.

How Much are Midcentury Objects?

Prices for midcentury objects can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, midcentury objects begin at $20 and can go as high as $60,000, while the average can fetch as much as $792.

Finding the Right Decorative Objects for You

Every time you move into a house or an apartment — or endeavor to refresh the home you’ve lived in for years — life for that space begins anew. The right home accent, be it the simple placement of a decorative bowl on a shelf or a ceramic vase for fresh flowers, can transform an area from drab to spectacular. But with so many materials and items to choose from, it’s easy to get lost in the process. The key to styling with decorative objects is to work toward making a happy home that best reflects your personal style. 

Ceramics are a versatile addition to any home. If you’ve amassed an assortment of functional pottery over the years, think of your mugs and salad bowls as decorative objects, ideal for displaying in a glass cabinet. Vintage ceramic serveware can pop along white open shelving in your dining area, while large stoneware pitchers paired with woven baskets or quilts in an open cupboard can introduce a rustic farmhouse-style element to your den.

Translucent decorative boxes or bowls made of an acrylic plastic called Lucite — a game changer in furniture that’s easy to clean and lasts long — are modern accents that are neutral enough to dress up a coffee table or desktop without cluttering it. If you’re showcasing pieces from the past, a vintage jewelry box for displaying your treasures can spark conversation. Where is the jewelry box from? Is there a story behind it?

Abstract sculptures or an antique vessel for your home library can draw attention to your book collection and add narrative charm to the most appropriate of corners. There’s more than one way to style your bookcases, and decorative objects add a provocative dynamic. “I love magnifying glasses,” says Alex Assouline, global vice president of luxury publisher Assouline, of adding one’s cherished objects to a home library. “They are both useful and decorative. Objects really elevate libraries and can also make them more personal.”

To help with personalizing your space and truly making it your own, find an extraordinary collection of decorative objects on 1stDibs.
