One of my favorite modes of architecture is in the middle of the century. The style is basically classified as flats, glass expanses, basic shapes, and organic influences, which are all about elegant and timeless objects. This age was also a noteworthy period for unique furniture design in which some of the most emblematic pieces were produced.
In the middle of the 20th century, some of the most popular chairs were launched which now remain as important and popular as before.
Let’s walk through our five favorite chairs today and discuss how to decorate them in your home. You would love to use one of the classic chairs, whether you are looking for a comfortable chair for your office or one for an overnight corner of your living room.
Barcelona Style Chair:
Barcelona style chairs and Ottoman had been originally modeled in the Barcelona Exhibition in 1929 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as part of the German pavilion, where he had his name. He decided to introduce a design that looks both elegant and convenient, drawing influence from an Egyptian folding stool, something on which the King and Queen of Spain could sit.
Although the styles of furniture were never seated in chairs, the rich people who used the chair as a status symbol soon became extremely popular.
The replica Barcelona style chair and ottoman originated in Barcelona is a statement for your house which really fits well in a dining area or workplace. The luxury leather seat has a modern and timeless, slightly industrial charm. The chair was adapted for manufacturing in the 1950s, but since then it has been produced in the same manner that shows how famous the chair is.
Eames Lounge Chair:
The Eames lounge chair is one of America’s most popular chairs and one of the staples of luxury furniture of the middle of the century. The chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956 as a reaction to the at the time prevalent spare and minimalist furnishings. It was built to demonstrate how sleek and comfortable furnishings transform the look of your interiors. This chair is simply molded with a plated wood and leather tapestry that give it a masculine feel. The Eames chair is traditionally combined with a living room ottoman, and it is an excellent chair to start and relax. The dream lounging chair I like to think about.
The tulip chair was created by Eero Saarinen in 1956. It is a rare organic object. The outline of the chair resembles the flower of the tulip, which flourishes and flours. But this chair is not only made classic by the style. It’s a statement as well.
The use of both curved and right lines gives the chair a nearly retro appearance – as in the Jetsons. The tulip chair is usually used as a desk or at a table because it has just one leg and leaves everything under the table much less cluttered.
So, if you think these chair designs can decorate your areas more uniquely and beautifully, then let’s choose one of the above styles and see how they lighten up your place and give embellish look to your overall interiors.
