One of the best and easiest ways to add some mid-century charm to your home is with clocks. Pick an amazing design to hang on your wall and you’ve got an instant conversation piece. Sunburst and ball clocks were popularized by George Nelson throughout the 50’s and 60’s. An early environmentalist, his goal was to “do much more with much less.” That’s just what these great clocks accomplish!
Sunburst/ Starburst Radiate Joy
If you’ve got a mid-century modern credenza or bar that needs a little pizzazz, look no further than the wood starburst. Starburst clocks instantly assert the style factor of a room. Choose a sunburst style in beautiful teak and if you can find vintage, even better.
