Mid-Century Modern Furniture
Why We Love Mid-Century Modern Furniture
The mid-century modern design of furniture and accents has become a favorite interior style for many homeowners. The mid-20th century inspired fashions and fixtures formed a significant design movement in history that is popular and proudly displayed in many homes and venues today. Mid-century furniture designs tend to be elegant, comfortable, and light, worthy of replication but never perfected. The style is characterized by clean lines and a timeless look, particularly for retro furniture.
Mid-Century & Retro-Inspired Furniture
Like warm memories and sentiments from the 1950's, mid-century modern furniture has captured our hearts with its simplicity and stunning beauty. The designs add elegance and ageless beauty to the home with styles that contemplate contemporary interiors. This collection of mid-century modern chairs, tables and other furniture pieces offers something for almost any room in the home. Choose mid-century chairs for your dining areas or a nice sofa or sectional for the living room or sitting room. No matter what the purpose of the room--a finished basement, a baby's room--you can find the perfect piece of mid-century furniture, like a bar stool or a rocker, to finish the look.
Where Mid-Century Modern Furniture Works Best
Retro chairs and mid-century inspired sofa designs bring character to modern living rooms, as well as exceptional comfort and a range of fabric options. You'll also love a mix of mid-century coffee tables or end tables in the living room and a decorative bench can provide additional seating. In the kitchen and dining room, elegant chairs from Gus Modern and Artek Furniture find their home along with retro-fashioned dining tables and a number of bar stools fit for a counterheight table. Finally, in the home office, pair your task chair with a desk reminiscent of what you have seen on the hit series, Mad Men.
Choosing the Best Mid-Century Modern Furniture
From sofas and lounge chairs and accent tables and retro-inspired dining sets, the first thing to consider when choosing new furniture is the size of furniture your space can appropriately accommodate. You'll want to measure for common furniture sizing dimensions like height, width, depth and weight (where applicable). Once you know how big (or how small) of furniture you need, you can begin refining your options by size. Next, further refine your selection by finishes, colors and other important design attributes. With the right size and style in mind, you will have no problem finding your new furniture implements.
