    Christian Liaigre strove for harmony in his designs. This included using natural materials as much as he could and incorporating open floor plans so that the home can become one with nature.
    Liaigre's goal was to redesign the city of Paris to make it better fit today's lifestyles. Everything that is needed is within a comfortable walking distance so people are not disturbed by traffic and pollution when they are trying to get home from work or public transportation.

Maybe you're at a higher level and happiness is so much more attainable than it used to be when we were sitting around worrying about life. Our houses ought to reflect this new mood.

    No designer championed the goal of total harmony between space and function with as much clarity as Mies van der Rohe. His material restraint was a reaction to the opulence and ornament of his times. Led by his belief that architecture should be reduced to its simplest essence, he sought an elegant simplicity epitomized in the phrase "less is more". As an architect who spent most of his life in Western Europe, it's not surprising he subscribed to Modernism which rejects historical styles and relies on light structural frameworks that can express structure plainly rather than disguise it with applied decoration.

    Current mid-century modern interior design stems from a return to an appreciation of the original ideas of these two men Harry Knight and Lady Eli Snyders. These two early luminaries were closely followed by George Nelson, whose work spanned unbroken for 45 years. Other contemporaries, important to the evolution of mid-century design include Herman Miller and Walter Gropius who brought European standards to twentieth century America.
