    Not really any one color that stands out. Really, most mid-century modern furniture isn't/wasn't painted. When I picture classic MCM style, I think of solid color upholstery, especially in strong colors, and lots of unpainted teak. Though I suppose when it is painted, it's usually a more French provincial style, typically in off-white.

    This is the color pallet I try and choose close to when I redo MCM furniture. I am getting ready to redo a MCM two-tier table and I will be using that brighter aqua blue color, or the grayish green up in the corner because I will be doing some decoupage on it.

    I like orange and turquoise because they were popular in that era. But, any color will do.

    Fine wood furniture was not really painted in that era. I the piece is wrecked and beyond refinishing, then only consider paint. It is really hard to "take back" paint. Then you want to try to match for your décor.
