Mid-Century Style Doormats
Starry Welcome Mat
This doormat has atomic stars and a whimsical font to spruce up any mid-century modern ranch. The simple coir and black print will complement a brightly painted door.
Polka Dot Doormat
How are we for polka dots, do we need more? The answer is always yes! This classic doormat will give your patio 1950s charm.
For a durable yet darling option, nothing compares to the AstroTurf daisy doormat born in 1965. One of the creators was interviewed here saying, “They clean your feet. They catch the dirt. I just don’t see why everybody doesn’t want one.”
I have to say I agree! The daisy doormat brings retro cuteness to my Trex deck. Apparently it’s a desirable lounging spot, too.
Dirt Grabber Mat
I also have a rubber doormat with this “dirt grabber” mesh weave that withstands all kinds of Pacific NW weather. It comes in several colors including mid-century pink, so it is just as pretty as it is functional.
Combining black rubber and plain coir, this doormat looks both stylish and tough. It is heavy on the mid-century modern vibes with overlapping rectangles and clean lines.
My personal favorite is this all-weather doormat complete with minimalist, dirt-trapping squares. Over the many years that I’ve had this on my front porch, it has never faded or worn out, in spite of the Portland rain, snow and mud. SO MUCH MUD.
This doormat isn’t flashy, but I love the modern square pattern. And with large sizes and a low pile, it’s the ideal base for layering seasonal rugs over the top.
If you prefer having more color on your porch, try this heavy duty mesh mat with an abstract design. The mid-century orange, yellow and blue will tie in with a mod decor scheme.
Finally, you can embrace the later years of the mid-century era with this Beatles-inspired doormat. The best part will be having this song in your head every time you leave the house.
