Mid-Century Modern (MCM) is a design movement in interior, product, graphic design, architecture, and urban development that was popular from roughly 1945 to 1969, during the post–World War II period. The term was used descriptively as early as the mid-1950s and was defined as a design movement by Cara Greenberg in her 1984 book Mid-Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s. It is now recognized by scholars and museums worldwide as a significant design movement. The MCM design aesthetic is modern in style and construction, aligned with the Modernist movement of the period. It is typically characterized by clean, simple lines and honest use of materials, and it generally does not include decorative embellishments. Alain Gaubert is a 20th century furniture designer, primarily known for his solid wooden designs. From 1964 to 1969 Gaubert worked at the artisans of Marolles. The French designer then created his own cabinet workshop in 1969 under his own name. The Gaubert workshop continues the production of several of the solid wooden designs of the founder to this day. The famous 17th century Mondoubleau House in France is entirely furnished with Gaubert’s designs.
