Nowing a style as different as that of Brazilian interior design allows us to open the horizons facing the life of interior design.Low profile, bold lines, and basic aesthetics define the midcentury Brazilian design style. Though this design style lasted from the 1950s to the 1970s, the furniture created during that time has remained timeless. Beautiful, indigenous Brazilian materials are combined with clean, curving shapes in this style. Because they are not cluttered by unnecessary carvings or decoration, their meticulously created forms express elegance. A midcentury ottoman may easily complement any existing seating arrangement, just as a rich-grained sofa can complement your existing accent chairs, whether they're classic, modern, or bohemian.


Brazilian modernism is quite similar to American and European modernism in terms of form, with a focus on functionality through simple forms that merge geometric and organic shapes. Brazilian modernism, on the other hand, was a world apart in terms of materials.

Because plastic and other materials were unavailable in Brazil in the 1950s, designers relied on wood and locally accessible materials like cane, leather, and wicker. In comparison to its Western equivalents, where designers frequently experimented with artificial materials, Brazilian design has a richer, more sensual feel.

The handcrafted craftsmanship of most Brazilian furniture from the time added to the atmosphere. Furniture production remained artisan until roughly 1966 to 1968 due to a lack of industrialization and manufacturing technology. Midcentury designs feature sculpted components and conventional joints, which are both charming elements.

Brazilian Modernism isn't as well-known as it should be since, like the design movement's antecedents, it met its destiny in politics. Furniture exports were prohibited during the military dictatorship that ruled from the 1960s to the 1980s, preventing Brazilian modernism from reaching the international stage. In addition, there was a serious shortage of knowledge on the movement, which kept it out of academics as well. However, this is beginning to change. As a result of social media and publications bringing Brazilian Modernism to light, it is attracting a larger audience.
