You’ll be glad
to know that number one is, of course, the Eames Lounge chair! (we’re just
kidding). There are a lot of short articles on mid-century furniture today.
Most of them focus on a single array of items, many of which you probably
already know (or bought), and honestly, we can’t blame the people who write
them, I mean, it’s all related to customer demand, right?
not saying that you shouldn’t pay attention to them, but rather than
mid-century furniture is a whole movement. Sometimes, many objects that are not
as famous as the key pieces get relegated to the background, so we’re just
trying to right a wrong here. Let’s get started!
Suggested Item: Bear Lounge Chair
To be fair, we
know that Hans Wegner is a weird designer. I mean, can you imagine having an Ox
chair right on your living room? It can be hard to place. Some people would
certainly describe his furniture design as “over-the-top,” but Wegner was a
visionary, and the truth is that he knew exactly where his vision began and the
Take a look at
the Papa Bear chair, just for a second. Can you see the marriage between his
particular style and a more classic notion of the lounge chair? This one is an
eye-catcher. This replica by Manhattan Home Design ($1,857) captures the
original idea and makes it better.
Suggested Item: Egg Chair
admit that Arne Jacobsen is definitely not a snub on the mid-century furniture
Oscars. A lot of people know about his designs, he’s pretty famous. But there
is a problem that’s similar to the one we had with Hans Wegner, where can we
put this? Will it look good on my house?
The egg chair is
actually really comfortable, but the truth is it might be better suited for
office spaces. If you don’t get to furnish your own office, then you can still
think about owning one on your house. One tip to make it more of an option?
Imagine how it would look in neutral colors: white, black, brown, etc. Most
people see a pink Egg chair and go “Yikes!”
This replica is
also from Manhattan Home Design ($2,992.50) and available in Iron Gray and
Black leather. But if you don’t care about the color, go get it! They’re bound
to run out eventually.
Suggested Item: Rocking Chair
have to include the Eameses on this one as well. Everybody is so obsessed with
the ELC (us included) that we know it’s hard to find a different perspective.
The rocking chair is cheap, comfortable, solid, and looks great everywhere.
MHD’s replica sells for only $299. For that price it’s worth a shot.
