In the 1950s, the United States becomes the center of the world in a variety of aspects including the economy, industry, and culture.
In the world of design, the United States also led the new tide of the post-war period. As if liberated from the concept promoted by German Bauhaus, which valued function and emphasized rationality, designs that unreservedly used curves flourished mainly in the U.S. These movements evolved into the Mid-century Modern style of design for furniture and interior design.

Common materials such as wood, glass, and metal were also used for creative expression.
