So, you’re an adult now. You have a job,
you earn your own income, you sleep whenever you want to sleep, and you get up
whenever you want to get up (but preferably before 8 a.m., so you can get to
work). You also make your own furniture and design choices, but sometimes you
don’t know where to start.
Finding a particular style can be very hard
for people who are just beginning to create their own living spaces. Sometimes
“adulting” takes most of your time, and that little window of leisure is
occupied by other important tasks, so buying furniture is not something that’s
on your mind.
How can the mid-century style help to
improve your home life?
Well, for starters, the mid-century modernist
furniture movement is very broad, and has something for everyone. Secondly,
most of its key designers produced their creations with the future in mind,
looking to make them timeless, and they succeeded.
Suggested Item: Papa Bear Chair
Take the Hans Wegner Papa Bear chair, for
example. This is one of the perks of being an adult. You should remember that
it is not only about having individual and financial freedom, but also about
being able to modify your space to your own needs (and kind of becoming a cool
grandpa to your future grandchildren).
Much like the Eames Lounge chair or the
Saarinen Womb chair, the Papa Bear is playing directly towards a feeling of
maturity and grownup-ness. The classic upholstery reminds people of the chair
their grandparents used to read the newspaper in the morning, or just relax
after a long day at work.
Getting yourself a quality mid-century
However, the classic feel of the Papa Bear
is offset by its modernist inclinations, represented on the huge, extending
sides, complete with the almost-flattened ottoman with handles. This is a great
chair for a young adult, full of responsibilities and joie de vivre.
Suggested Item: Papa Bear Chair & Ottoman
But if that’s just too intense a
description for you, just think of this chair as a way to get your parents to
think you’re a responsible person whenever they drop by for a visit. There are
many replicas you can get today, but Manhattan Home Design is offering some of
the best, quality-wise. This one is selling for $1,857, and though that might
look expensive, you might feel differently after looking at the “original”
