Unless you've been living under an interior decorating rock, you've probably noticed that mid-century furniture is back...in a big way! Take a trip to your local Crate & Barrel, West Elm, or Room & Board, and it will take you all of 30 seconds to realize these stores are doubling down on this trend.

I'm pretty sure if I'm seeing this trend for the second time around, there are people out there who are now on round three! Mark my words, I'm standing firm this time and will NOT succumb to this trend again! Anyways...back to furniture.

While I don't actually have physical evidence of that last one, I promise you, it's true! However, I can back up those first two statements, so let's focus on those today.
