One of the great things about mid-century modern design, like the furniture in this dining room, is that it's both stylish and easy to care for. Mid-century modern pieces typically have smooth finishes, are made with sturdy materials, and have high, slender legs, making them great for wiping down, sweeping under, and looking good.

These types of design hacks make what could be an overlooked space feel designed and considered.
