5 Mid-Century Modern Chairs that Will Leave You Speechless


The combination of geometric or organic forms with upholstered colourful cushions, has something magic that attracts our attention. Within many materials and colors, however, we have a real passion for the wood and blue/turquoise contrast; somehow it always works very well. Today we decided to show you five Mid-century Modern seats with upholstered blue cushions to prove that, doesn’t matter the shape, this combination always works!

Only one in this group of mid-century modern chairs doesn’t have a wooden structure but, as you will see, that one looks always good.
