The iconic designs that emerged in the middle of the 20th century were not defined as “Mid-Century Modern” until 1983 when Cara Greenberg coined the term with her book named exactly this. It is not exactly a secret why there was suddenly a resurgence of this celebrated style in the same year Greenberg finally gave it a name.
