MCM, as they call it, is functional, streamlined, open and uncluttered. Mid-century furniture and decor are often a mix of organic and geometric forms. Clean lines are paired with gentle curves.
Colours are usually dark neutral tones paired with a deep accent colour. The easiest rug to get for a mid-century modern look is a solid colour to match.
Mid-century patterns are usually asymmetrical and/or abstract. But as you're going for the modern version, patterns do not need to strictly be 50's and 60's style.
