Target launching mid-century modern home collection

project 62 chairMINNEAPOLIS — Target will launch the first of four new home furnishings collections next month — the first harkening back to its early days in business.

Project 62 (for 1962, the year Target was established) will feature small-scale mid-century modern styles with Scandinavian influences in the living room, bedroom and dining room categories, with pillows, accents and more, according to the first-look images on its website.

The collection will be available online Sept. 16 and in stores Sept. 19.

“The assortment is hyper-focused on making environments effortlessly functional through smart solutions for urban, small-space living,” Target said in an introduction on its website. It includes more than 1,200 pieces (including tabletop and decor), a spokeswoman said. Prices will range from $16.99 to $699.99 in the bedding and furniture categories.

Project 62 was developed in-house and will be refreshed multiple times throughout the year, she said in an email.
