This streamlined style from the 1950s and 1960s is new again!
Want a touch of the Mad Men era in your home? Just add one or two mid-century chairs!
Mid-century design, also called mid-century modern, is more than 50 years old, yet it’s experiencing a renaissance today. That’s because this design style is timeless and distinctive. And although mid-century chairs add a modern touch, they go with most any other design style. They add a focal point to a room and are truly comfortable and functional.
Mid-century chairs are characterized mostly by straight lines without ornamentation, and are often accented with a few graceful curves. Mid-century chairs combine expert craftsmanship with industrial design and manufacturing. They’re constructed from metal, wood, fiberglass, plastic and sometimes leather and fabric. They come in almost any color, but tend to be in black, white and tan. You can also go wild with 1960s colors such as harvest gold and avocado.
You don’t have to change your decorating style to add a couple of mid-century chairs. Celebrate “less is more” with the beautiful lines and curves of a mid-century chair or two.
