Mid Century Modern
Architecture. Not at it’s most practical, but it catches the eye.

Between the 1950s and the 1970s, there was hardly a blueprint around that did not include specifications for a Conversation pit- also known as the sunken living room.  Conversation Pits are an architectural feature that incorporates built in seating into a subjacent section of flooring within a larger room. This area often has a table in the center as well. The seats typically face one another in a centrically focused fashion bringing the occupants to engage in more personal time as opposed to normal tables and chairs that would now allow this comfortable seating arrangement. What I love so much about these Conversation Pits is the sense of comfort and informality. They were originally created by modernist architects and designers looking to maximize space in their interiors. Can’t you just imagine having dinner parties with wine and hors d’oeuvres with a suspended fireplace, a classic lamp while be surrounded by the retro colors of greens, browns and oranges? My Mid Century Dream home will most definitely have a Sunken Living Room. One day, one day…
