The midcentury furnishings are designed from glass, wood, plastic, metal, and many materials.

Mid-century furniture is sleek and functional with minimal lines, so is great to employ in modern bohemian room.
Pile on textiles
For incorporating a boho chic attitude than fabric probably helps. Mid-century furniture may look somewhat basic, so use textiles. It will bring color and pattern. Mismatched accent pillows, upholstered seating, and woven blankets designed from silk, damask or ikat will offer the bed, chair or sofa an eccentric up-do. In addition, macramé wall hangings, bed canopies, tapestries, and curtains made from cool cottons and light linens will add texture to windows or walls. Layered knotted or braided bohemian rugs can add a flair to the floor.

Blend brightly colored fabrics and funky tribal patterns featuring neutral colored plant motifs or animals, which creates a unique combination with modern design. Jewel tones like red, teal, fuchsia, golden yellow and dark blue blend nicely with gray, beige, and white. Create a pattern and color scheme, which works perfectly and is not sore on the eyes.
Highlight with antiques or heirlooms or vintage elements
Modern boho-style space is incomplete without accessories. Decorate windowsills, shelves, and tables with family heirlooms, trinkets found abroad or flea market shopping. Collectibles allow you to make the space your own. For example, on a coffee table display a bohemian collection like shallow ceramic bowl in gray filled with crystals, few candles, incense, and matches. For adding modern contrast streamline your favorite books.
