Mid-Century Modern Furniture

In this section you will find mid-century modern furniture that we think are within the most representative of the mid-century modern style. Some of these mid modern furniture made the history of modern design, and are still in production, others are less known but equally iconic.

We believe that good furniture design should follow function, and not by coincidence this was the pillar for some of the most representative designers of the 20th century as Charles and Ray Eames or Eero Saarinen.

Overall, we hope to show why we believe everyone should invest in well designed mid-century furniture, as they would for a piece of art.

Arne Jacobsen: The Egg Chair

Probably one of the most famous chairs ever designed during the Mid-Century, the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair takes its name from the similarity with a broken eggshell and because of its ‘wrapping’ shape it’s considered the modern version of the Georgian wing armchair.

Charles and Ray Eames: The Wire Chair

The Charles Eames Wire Chair is an iconic seat with sculptural qualities difficult to find in those years. Even though its design recalls previous fibreglass chairs, the Wire Chair was manufactured using a very different technology.

Poul Henningsen was one of the most famous mid-century modern Danish designers and it comes with no surprise that almost all his designs are still manufactured by the Danish company Louis Poulsen.

New and Old Molded Plastic Eames Chairs

We all are Mid-Century fans, isn’t it?
There’s a personal component in our personal mid century craziness because we like the design, but the market stimulates it as well!
I just read, but maybe is an old news for some of you, that Herman Miller introduced new colors for the addictive Eames molded plastic chairs range.
